Sit-Stand Desks

Sit-Stand Solutions

Many offices are now equipped with height- adjustable workstations. Consequently the user has the option to sit or stand whilst working. Standing at the desk is becoming more and more popular; encouraging workers to move, and vary their posture throughout the day can reap huge rewards for both the individual and employer. Prolonged periods of sitting have adverse health effects such as back problems, obesity, DVT (deep vein thrombosis) and it can even increase the risk of heart disease and additionally cancer. Even small amounts of movement throughout the day can have transformational effects on your vitality and also your sense of wellbeing. We can help you decide which desk is most suited to your needs. You may even be able to trial it.

Typically we each spend around 37 hours a week at work. The workplace environment has a huge impact on productivity and also effectiveness. If employees are not comfortable at work they can be easily distracted and irritable. With careful use of colour, plus consideration of acoustics and textures, employees feel more relaxed, less stressed and engaged, and in turn are more loyal, productive and effective.
