Types of corporate environments

Any corporate environment can benefit from more productive staff and a healthier workplace, but in our experience, we’ve noticed time and time again the following industries to be perfect candidates for standing desks in the office.

Offices

From small businesses to larger corporations, all kinds of offices contain workers sitting at their desks for up to 10 hours a day.

And with a quarter of us skipping our lunch breaks, there leaves little time throughout the workday for any kind of standing.

With an electric standing desk, employees can simply make the switch between sitting and standing throughout their day. Quiet operation means no distractions for others and while quick operation means no disruptions to your workflow.

Government

Reduce sitting times and improve office ergonomics, productivity, and health in Government settings and organisations through an active workplace.

Ergomotion has had great success improving Government workplaces with ergonomic solutions designed to improve the health and performance of employees.

Our standing desks are also ideal for “hot desking” environments, as the quick and quiet operation means the height can easily be adjusted to suit individuals’ preferences.

Radiology

Any kind of medical occupation where employees are spending long periods of time poring over documents, scans, files, and more, means most of the day is spent sitting.

All that sitting opens up the opportunity for upper and lower back pain and well as neck, shoulder, and wrist aches.

Enjoy a better reading experience with an ergonomic standing Imaging Desk, designed to give you the optimum control over sitting and standing during your workday.

Rehabilitation

Our custom electric standing desks are ideal in a rehabilitation setting for children.

Young people depend on rehabilitation services to help them regain control of their function following recovery from illness, injury, or medical procedures.

Height adjustable desks can conform to a user’s specific requirements, and allows them to easily alternate, at the push of a button, between sitting and standing, giving them total control. Ergomotion’s Motiondesk® 2 & 3 -DL 14 is ideal for children as it has an extra-low starting height.

Benefits of standing desks for corporate

A more active workspace equals a workplace designed for humans.

The human body was not made to sit all day, and a standing desks gives employees an opportunity to organically move – just as the body was designed to! – throughout the day.

Studies show that frequent switches between sitting and standing throughout the day helps to promote a healthier, happier, and more productive work environment.

Blood flow

Boost blood flow while standing during the day. DId you know that sitting for long periods of time can increase your risk of cardiovascular problems, diabetes, and even cancer?

Stand up for your health and get that blood pumping!

Concentration

An improved blood flow means more blood is being pumped around your body, including to your brain, therefore increasing brain function.

Improve concentration and boost focus with a standing desk

Energy and alertness

We’re all familiar with that 3 o’clock slump. Lunch is long gone and we’re counting down the minutes until the end of the day.

Say goodbye to that slump and enjoy boosted energy while standing. Standing desk users feel more alert and find their productivity soars throughout the day.

Calories

Did you know that you burn more calories standing than you do sitting?

A 60kg female can burn 262 more calories per hour standing instead of sitting, while a male who weighs 80kg can burn more than 340 extra calories per hour while standing.

Back pain

Did you know that up to 90% of Australians will experience some sort of back pain in their lifetime?

A somewhat surprising statistic that instantly becomes plausible when we consider all the time we spend sitting at a desk, day-in, day-out.

How to start standing in the workplace

We understand that making the move from sitting to standing can seem a bit daunting, especially since most people are so used to sitting for such long periods during the day.

As such, transitioning from a seated position to a sit-stand environment shouldn’t be done immediately, and takes a little time to ease into.

We recommend starting small, and building slowly.

You could follow a schedule like this:

  • For the first few days, stand for 20 minutes, twice a day: once a few hours into the day, and again an hour or two before the workday ends. This could be, for example, at 11am and then after lunch, at 3pm.
  • By the end of week one, you should try standing for 20 minutes, three to four times a day
  • By the end of the second or third week, you should be alternating between sitting and standing throughout the day, but the majority of time still spend sitting
  • A month or two in, your time between sitting and standing should be divided relatively evenly

Alternatively, you could try standing for certain tasks – like checking emails, during online or phone meetings, or when taking and making phone calls.

Remember, standing for long periods of time is just as detrimental as sitting, so the key is alternation: switching between sitting and standing throughout the entire workday is the best way to maximise all the great benefits of an electric sit-to-stand desk!

Guy was a pleasure to deal with from the beginning and catered to my specifications. The quality of the table was amazing! I’ve seen some other desks from other manufacturers which were extremely flimsy, unstable and poorly constructed. The product was custom built and received very promptly as well. Thanks again Guy, I know where I’ll be heading the next time I’m in need of a desk!

Guy has been one of the most helpful people in helping me setting up my brand new desk frame. He guided me on where to find the best quality desktops to add onto the desk legs.

Guy was an absolute professional from start to finish. Very seamless process with ordering to pick up taking less than 24hrs.

Guy will take the time to understand your requirements, communicates clearly and will not try to upsell items you don’t require. Instructions to put together are clear and the videos on the website are helpful too.

We are extremely happy with our purchases. Desks are well designed and built. We love our new desks and would happily recommend Ergomotion.

Thanks Guy and all the best!

**Reposting from my personal account.**

I spoke to Guy shortly after moving to Australia to get some information about their standing desks. I'd been on the hunt for one for a while and was struggling to find something that seemed to be good quality while still being reasonably priced.

Guy answered all my questions confidently and clearly, checked their stock levels since I was looking at a hardwood desktop not specified on their site and got back to me promptly with all the information.

When I was ready to go ahead with the order, it was a quick phone call and my order was on it's way. When the delivery seemed as though it might take longer than expected, Guy dropped the desk with me himself.

I put the desk together which was a very simple process - although a powered screw driver would have made the job much easier for me, I left all my tools in South Africa when I moved over and haven't built up a collection again just yet. The desk has been great and will get I'm sure, many years of happy use!

I highly recommend Ergomotion as a brand! Guy's service is a strong addition to an already great product.

Guy was just a pleasure to deal with. Excellent knowledge and advice which followed through to excellent after sales. The e-desk is very sturdy, easy to use and looks great. Great job Guy and thank you

I love my Ergomotion stand up desk! It is easy to set up and is made of quality materials. However, the best part of the purchase was the excellent customer service I received. Guy (the owner) came out in the pouring rain to measure the boot of my car to make sure I could pick the desk up (fully assembled) and it would fit. I ordered the desk on a Monday and it was ready by Tuesday morning. He helped loading the desk in my car, removed a leg so that it could fit and explained how to put the leg back in, which was very straightforward and did not need any tools. If you are considering buying a stand up desk, I would definitely recommend Ergomotion.

Guy was lovely to deal with. He was prompt and courteous in all his communication. He was happy for us to look at the desk before purchase. Once ordered, the desk arrived so quickly. Guy set it all up and we are extremely happy with the product. Thanks Guy for your great service and care.
