Desk jobs make up about 80% of the current jobs in America. Take a quick look at your friends and family. Chances are good that most of them have jobs that require them to be in an office most of the day. And our workdays aren’t getting any shorter. For the sake of their health, many of these companies are turning to standing desks. If all 80% of our desk job workforce is sitting all day, the American health crisis won’t get any better. Healthier employees mean a healthier bottom line for your company.
The research is out on the negative effects of sitting all day. If you are one of the many people who are sitting at a desk all day, it’s time to consider getting a standing desk at your office. Adjustable height desks allow you to do your job while standing but also take breaks by lowering your desk and sitting. An adjustable height desk is a great option for someone who spends long hours at the office.
