GUNNAR Optiks glasses are a popular and healthy vision peripheral in the gaming community. Yet, for all the popularity among gamers, GUNNAR Optiks are also a great visual ergonomic option for businesses. Coming off the entrance of GUNNAR Optiks in the Adobe Swag Store in their San Jose, CA offices, GUNNAR Optiks are now available in the Facebook store at their headquarters in Menlo Park.
The Facebook campus, which as Jed Rawson (GUNNAR Optiks Director of B2B sales) said looks like a mini version of Main Street at Disneyland, was more than welcoming to GUNNAR Optiks with several hundred employees coming down to check out the display. GUNNAR Optiks will now permanently be offered to Facebook employees. With a campus full of engineers, coders, designers and others staring at computers all day — if you see any major changes in the Facebook layout next week it might be because they are working more efficiently and ergonomically thanks to GUNNAR Optiks.
As mentioned before, visual ergonomics are no joke. Many employers go to great lengths to protect their employees from ergonomical issues to not only save money on health insurance and lost productivity, but to enable their employees to do their best work. While wrist guards are one thing, vision is another. Facebook bringing GUNNAR Optiks into the Facebook store shows they are committed to the health and well being of their employee base. The dozen or so employees who quickly snatched up pairs of GUNNAR glasses for the three day Facebook hackathon this weekend already seemed to be keen to the advantages of wearing GUNNAR glasses.
The Facebook company store is operated by BrandVia and is the only location in the world where you can legally buy Facebook branded merch. Now it’s also where Facebook employees can easily pick up a pair of GUNNAR Optiks, which makes them more productive and your social experience better.
