Heat Your Seat

If there is one thing that Winter Storm Hercules might have taught us, it is that some features thought to be superfluous may actually be necessary to complete a job under extreme circumstances.  One such amenity is the heated seat.  Something I have never personally taken for granted since our introduction (I’ll never forget the first time we met) but yet it’s a feature I see many customers passing on daily.  It’s understandable that when facing a budget constraint something viewed as an unnecessary feature would be the first to feel that crunch.  But why is it deemed as unnecessary to begin with?  That’s what I’m unsure of, and I think that you should be questioning your quick trigger response as well.

So let us take a look at some industrial seats that have the capability of keeping you warm on a record-breaking cold day for minimal add-on cost, and allow you to complete your daily tasks while simultaneously avoiding frostbite.

Is it unnecessary for an employee to be comfortable to complete a job?  Absolutely not, and since we are staring a “Polar Vortex” in the face  I think it’s as good time as any to remind employers that a heated seat is more than a feature left to the fat cats in luxury automobiles. It is a necessary feature to ensure productivity during the frigid winter months.
