Huggys office equipment is not designed for the modern office environment, and it may not suit the ergonomic needs of its employees, according to a new report from the BBC.
Huggies’ office equipment can’t meet the standards of the Office of the President, which recommends offices be designed to accommodate all users and staff.
In the report, the BBC reported that “many of the Huggs products, like the HUG-HUGG and HUGG-3, are only designed to work with people who have already had a visit to the office or at a coffee shop.”
Huggys’ offices are not designed to be used with a desk chair or desk, which are popular ergonomic devices for office workers.
The company said it’s “investigating” the report and is “working closely with the Department of Justice to make sure our products are compliant with the law.”
The report also noted that some Huggles products were marketed as being designed to “fit” a person’s desk or desk chair.
In reality, Hugges’ office furniture “doesn’t fit at all” as most of the furniture is designed to fit in with the rest of the office.
“The ergonomic chairs, couches and chairs that we offer to customers do not fit into our office spaces.
They’re designed to meet the ergonomics requirements of the business and are not suitable for offices or for people who are already sitting,” a spokesperson told the BBC in a statement.
Hoggys’ spokesperson also said the company is working with the DOJ on the investigation.
