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 our 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 electric standing desks, 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.

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!

Great service and really quick shipping. It is great to know that you are getting quality parts from a Scandinavian manufacturer with your standing desk purchase rather than the cheap knock off stuff you get from other major brands. Reasonably priced for the quality too!

Guy was very accommodating with meeting him at a time that suited me. He assembled the desk prior to me collecting so I only had to carry it inside with help (it's pretty heavy). The desk is great, the storage racks underneath with the 6 x built in powerpoints was worth the extra money. I have a functioning & tidy workplace.
Guy was brilliant, I highly recommend.

Have now purchased 2 stand up office desks off Guy, benchmark sales service from him, all via email, so easy; from quote to plug in, only matched by the strong quality of these machines, solid and stable. If only everything in life was this easy and reliable.

I purchased an EDesk this month from Ergomotion, and it was a remarkably smooth transaction. Guy was eager to answer all my questions before my purchase. As a first-time buyer of a standing desk, I truly appreciated how he addressed my queries with thorough details and provided options within my budget.

The delivery process was also smooth, despite a slight delay in the ETA. Guy ensured I received all necessary updates from the courier/removalist.

I've been using the desk for a couple of weeks now and I'm satisfied with it. It's sturdy on all height adjustments and the motor works as expected. I also like oak finish because it's clean-looking and suits my room setup.

Overall, I'm happy with my purchase and I'll definitely recommend Ergomotion to someone looking for their desk needs.

I've had an ergomotion desk for 10 years. It's still as good today as it was brand new. Over the years Guy has always responded promptly to any guidance I've needed (mostly help putting the desk back together after removalists take it apart).

Skip the big name brands and buy from Guy instead, 10/10 linak parts with a very well built tabletop.

I purchased the edesk from Guy at Ergomotion. Guy was a pleasure to deal with and the desk arrived the next day. Guy was highly knowledgeable on the desk and provided very prompt support on the installation. I can highly recommend Ergomotion.
