by TrueNorth Desks

true-north-standing-desks-improve-health-at-workFor far too long, companies in the US have relied far too heavily on traditional office environments. Gone are the days of uniform seating, cubicle isolation, and whitewashed walls. Talented employees are drawn to ergonomic workspaces that promote collaboration, care and benefits. Motorized standing desks are an important step in developing the office culture that attracts today’s top employees. Here are 4 reasons your company should invest in standing desks:

Preventative Care

Countless dollars are spent each year on workplace injuries and care. Every dollar an employer spends toward ergonomic office furniture is an investment in the overall health and benefit of both company and employees. By investing in standing desks, companies offer their employees the valuable opportunity to maintain better posture, minimize neck and back  pain, limit carpal tunnel and other joint related injuries, and better allow blood flow through the body. An investment on the front end, the standing desk series available at TrueNorth goes a long way in increasing preventative health measures.

Maximize Productivity

Companies that invest in adjustable height desks see an increase in employee satisfaction. Employees have a great sense of corporate and employer support if they have furniture that promotes an ergonomic workspace. Employees using sit to stand desks can easily move through the office, collaborate with peers, and focus more intensely on specific tasks. Not only do standing desks help maximize productivity, but they have made a huge impact in the lives of today’s most successful people.

Energize your Day

Using a sit to stand desk in your office allows you more energy throughout your day. There is even a psychological effect of breaking up the layout and texture of an office that boost employee morale and allows for a better sense of individualism and value. Companies that invest in computer workstation ergonomics make it possible for employees to energetically move quickly and efficiently throughout the office, with a reduced risk of workplace related injury.

Corporate Incentives

Certain insurance companies provide incentives for companies and/or individuals who invest in ergonomic office desks and furniture. As an employer, check with your insurance company to see what incentives are available using sit to stand desks. If you are self-employed, you may be able to write off your standing desk investment as a tax deduction – be sure to check with your accountant to see if this available to you. As you look to introduce standing desks in the workplace, consider implementing a sales or procurement incentive – employees with the highest marks are the first to receive their desks.
