As technology continues to evolve people are connected to their devices for longer periods of time, which from a business perspective means they work longer hours. Business owners continue to search for methods of helping their workforce cope with the pressures that come with modern work styles, one of the answers becoming increasingly popular is height adjustable desks.
To some, the idea still seems far-fetched and too out there but as they say ‘don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.’ Here are just a few reasons as to why a height adjustable environment could benefit your staff and, of course, your business.
Start with the Jugular – Live longer, be happier. We are not designed to be sedentary, our bodies were built to be in motion. The time we spend typing, surfing the web, trolling through social media and consuming masses of digital content is not good for us. If our desks enable us to change position and move whilst we work out physical health can only improve.
Evolution – sitting down takes its toll on our health. Research shows that “Standing for just 5-10% of your day can keep you healthier, happier and more productive.” It is time to start reverting back to moving while we work, like our predecessors.
More energy, less fatigue – being sat at a desk for a long period of time can be tiring and even painful at times. By moving to break up the period of time you are sitting you will start to feel less fatigued and more energetic.
Get more done – sometimes during intensive periods of work it can seem impossible to step away from the desk. In the world we work in today your desk is more than a workspace, it is almost like a second home so it's worth making it comfortable!
Some of the most common goals for businesses are to grow, generate more profit and be seen as innovative. By considering height adjustable solutions for your workplace, not only are you creating a healthier environment for your workforce, but you are providing them with the tools they need to be more productive and help you achieve those goals.
