5 Ways to Make a Positive Impact (Today!) on Office Culture

by TrueNorth Desks

Every corporate office needs an occasional burst of optimism. Office cultures can sometimes accidentally begin to breed negativity. It is up to managers and supervisors as well as the members of each workplace team to establish healthy habits for collaboration, support, and positive attitudes. At TrueNorth, our line of standing desks are designed to offer users the tools necessary to develop positive routines in the workplace. While we understand that an adjustable height desk isn’t the only thing needed to generate a positive office atmosphere, we do think it’s a start. Here are 5 ways to make a positive impact (today!) on your office culture:


Showing up to work on time is a must. If you’re always running late, you are simply adding frustrations for your peers and managers. No one wants to be made to wait for the start of a meeting, or feel the need to catch you up on details that you’ve missed. Set up a timer on your motorized standing desk to remind you when to transition between working positions, and when to get going to the next meeting or assignment.

Greetings Matter

Say hello to people in the morning, and wish them well at the end of the day. Many offices are moving into open concept designs, and it makes complete sense that you’d communicate regularly with your coworkers. The sit to stand desks at TrueNorth are designed to contribute to this community because we understand that connected people are happy people.

Healthy Lives

Ergonomic office furniture allows users to live healthier lives. Instead of sitting all day, a standing desk gives you the chance to move freely between tasks and support your lower back and neck with ergonomic design. As coworkers see that your health and happiness is benefited by your standing desk, they’ll be encouraged to make positive changes for themselves.


Create a positive office environment by arriving to meetings ready to contribute. Do your homework on your individual tasks, and be prepared to take the initiative on specific assignments. A positive work environment is formed when coworkers trust the work ethic, assertiveness, and competency of their peers. At TrueNorth, our various desk designs allow users to handle multiple projects at once. Depending on your preference, we have large and small standing workstations, with dual level and corner options available.

Collaborative Mindset

You should be collaborating regularly at work. TrueNorth standing desks are designed to promote collaboration amongst coworkers. Our desks can fit together to form pod-like structures, while still maintaining autonomy for individual users. Positive work environments are collaborative and a safe place for people to share ideas and receive support.
