About the Company

A small and friendly team of ergonomics geeks, Posture People are an award winning office furniture consultancy. Posture People have assisted some of the biggest and brightest companies from Brighton and beyond, helping workforces not only reduce absenteeism, but become happier, healthier and more productive.   They do this by offering workstation assessments, ergonomic products and supplying furniture for complete office refurbishment projects. 

“Many people initially come to us because one member of staff is having problems with an issue like backache when they are sitting at their desk, and then we end up working with them to re-design their offices to create a more productive environment for their staff” said David Blood, Founder of Posture People.  “The Company is now over 10 years old and we have seen literally thousands of desks and different workstations. There’s not much we haven’t seen, but it still amazes us how a few tweaks can make a huge difference to someone’s working life”

Joining Shoreham Port

WPosture snapith their team growing year on year, Posture People were looking for new premises to inspire their staff and live their motto “love your workspace.” When they found out that a warehouse on the beach had become available, their staff corralled them into a viewing. Managing Director Jo Blood could instantly see the potential; “We were sold within 10 minutes. Aware that it would require renovation from the ground up, we all pitched in, and came up with a vision of our dream office. Joining the port has been a fantastic move for our business. We now have the space we need to grow, build our dream office and most importantly, have our own Posture People bar in a corner of the warehouse”.

Looking Forward

“With the friendly community and excellent support of the port staff, we have settled in really well. We moved with the intention to practise what we preach and we think we have done just that. This space has allowed us all to have standing desks, a proper breakout room and the ability to take breaks on the beach.  Going forward, we are already looking into expanding our offices further with amazing meeting spaces. The possibilities are endless! “
