At Sitbetter, we know that right now the economic times are tough, and that most can not afford to spend money to purchase new items, even if they desperately need it. When it comes to office chairs however, if you are sitting in a broken office chair or an office chair that is not ergonomically correct it is crucial to get a new one because it can be detrimental to your health. No one wants to be sitting in a chair all day that gives you back pain or neck pain, when the work day is already long enough as it is.

In Sitbetter’s first contest of the new year 2010, we asked contestants to write about how a new EMC2 Concept Series High Back Mesh Executive Chair with Top Grain Leather would help them accomplish their New Year’s Resolution. There were many interesting and unique reasons why people believed a brand new office chair would help them accomplish their new year’s resolution. Many believed that this chair would help them lose weight and exercise more by being comfortable throughout the day and more likely to want to hit the gym after a day of sitting in comfort. Others wanted this chair for medical reasons, such as relieving their back pain and sitting in a chair that would be beneficial to their health. But our most surprising entry of all was contestant number 20, Diane, who did not want this chair for herself but rather wanted to give this chair to her friend who needed it more than she did.
Diane wrote: I think this chair would be the perfect way to accomplish my new year’s resolution of helping those in need! My co-worker, Pat, has been through a lot the last couple years with her husband losing his leg in a farming accident and her boss being absent from work for several months on medical leave. Pat complains of back pain often, which is most likely caused by a combination of her old office chair and loads of stress. She wouldn’t think of burdening her boss by asking for a new chair though. In the candid photo I uploaded of her, you can see how badly Pat needs this chair. Her husband is due to have another surgery in a few days, and I would love for her to come back to work and find a comfortable new chair behind her desk! Thank you so much, Diane.
After reading her heartfelt and compelling entry, and being astounded by the fact that she would rather give her chair she won away to her friend because she needed it more, our panel of three office chair experts came to a unanimous decision that Diane deserved to be the winner of our contest. On behalf of all of Sitbetter we want to congratulate Diane on being selected as the winner of Sitbetter’s New Year, New Chair contest and for beating out over 80 other entries! We also want to take the time to thank all the other contestants who participated for entering our contest as well, there were many great entries to choose from and all the pictures we received were amazing as well!

Our Thanksgiving “Tell us why you’d be thankful for a new chair” contest came to an end last week just in time for the holidays. With over 60 heartfelt and compelling entries to choose from, the judging panel had their work cut out for them, making it very difficult to choose just one winner. After a long deliberation and cutting down the potential winners to a top 5, our decision was finally reached. We chose to award Shirley, entry number 22, as the official winner of our contest!
22. Shirley: After 74 years of wear and tear my old vertebra needs all the help and support it can get. Have lugged around 4 children, 4 grandbabies, worked as a nurse helping patients do their things, and for the past ten years since going online, have used a variety of chairs none of which did my back much good so would love to try your ergonomic chair. My back would be eternally grateful I am sure.
Congratulations to Shirley for having the best entry out of 65 other entries! We also appreciate your creativity by including a picture of yourself. Shirley will be receiving an Ergonomic Ball Chair as her prize in the contest, hopefully giving her back the comfort it deserves. You can read the rest of the contest entries by clicking here.
