Can I bring my own Chair into the Office.

Just realized that sitting at an office for 8+ hours in my potential future might be painful for my neck and back. Interested in going to PE/IB.

Does anyone know if you can bring in your own chair. I was thinking like an gaming/racing style chair. Probably would go all black so it didn't stand out. Would probably go in early or later to bring in the chair to make sure I wasn't doing it during work hours.

Would my coworkers/boss shit on my for it. Its a chair so like. What's the worst that could happen

if going to a boutique, chances are they will have top of the line chairs - the boutique i was at had amazing chairs

if going to larger bank, chances are the chairs will be fucking shit - i was at a larger bank and the chairs there were literally 2 slabs of cushion put at 90 degress and sat atop some wheels. Very painful to sit on. HR were 'unable' to change the chairs

whether or not you can bring your own chair idk - I would think that you would need to have it approved by hr for health and safety reasons ie so the bank doesn't accept liability should somehting happen to you whilst using your own chair. HR may feel this is above their pay grade to sort out...

Nobody is going to care. Sit on whatever you want. Just make sure you drag it into the office later in the evening so you don't look like a wang.

I got an ergonomic chair in quarantine so I was wondering about this too actually.

My guess is your office building may not allow it for safety reasons since it could bring COVID into the office.

Lol those gaming/racing chairs as you call them have ZERO ergo. If you care as much as you say about your back/neck buy an actual professional office chair.

Thank you! DO NOT bring a gaming chair into the office, they suck and look ridiculous. I hope the company would have some decent ergo chairs, if not get them to get you one or reimburse you for one

Dude you don't know anything. Don't listen to this jabroni. I got a bright red one with the super tall head rest and literally everyone calls me "Mr. Special" now. It's kinda badass

I have no idea about whether or not you can bring a chair, but if you cannot, then a lumbar support cushion would be the next best thing

I'm a fun guy. Obviously I love the game of basketball. I mean there's more questions you have to ask me in order for me to tell you about myself. I'm not just gonna give you a whole spill... I mean, I don't even know where you're sitting at

I would suggest bringing in several cinderblocks into the office to sit on, because they tend to keep you alert, focused, and in an upright position due to their rigidity.
