6 Reasons More Workers are Switching to Standing Workstations

by TrueNorth Desks

As standing desks become more available to the average office worker, we are beginning to see a shift in the preferred design of corporate furniture. With standing desks, office workers receive a number of health benefits that aren’t necessarily found with traditional seating office furniture. When hiring prospective employees, it’s important to establish ways that your office stands above the rest. Investing in ergonomic office furniture, you give new hires and loyal employees a sense that you are investing in them. Here are 6 reasons workers are switching to standing workstations:

Better Posture

Don’t we all wish we had listened better when our mothers told us to stand up straight? In today’s marketplace, too many of us spend our days hunched over our keyboards. With sit to stand desks, you give yourself a chance to stand for part of the day. This variety helps ensure that you are maintaining better posture throughout the day and into your home life.

More Energy

Sitting has been equated to the new smoking. Those who sit for 8 hours a day develop habits of more sluggish behavior. With a motorized standing desk, you have the opportunity to combat fatigue and generate more energy throughout the day. We recommend that office workers stand for 3-5 hours each day. This burns more calories and keeps the spring in your step for longer.

Greater Productivity

We are all looking for ways to increase productivity throughout the workday. We all want to maintain a sharp eye and a multi-tasking, focused mind, and anything that can contribute to that should be explored. With a standing desk, your body remains more alert throughout the day, allowing your mind to also stay sharp. You’ll find that you get more work done in shorter intervals of time.

Ergonomic Support

Standing desks significantly descrease risk of lower back and neck discomfort. You are putting less pressure on sensitive areas of the body and offering yourself a chance to practice good posture and good health. The adjustable height desks also give you the chance to sit while working on specific projects, and the mobility contributes to a lowered risk of cardiovascular disease, obesity, and diabetes.
