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!

Absolutely amazing products and service. The build quality and finish of the desks more than justify the cost, while Guy's service and communication are icing on the cake. I did a heap of shopping around before buying and am so glad I went with Ergomotion for my home-office.

One of my colleagues recommended this company and I bought eDesk with basic configurations except the desktop size (Elegant Oak 1500x750) before the end of financial year so I am using it for about 20 days. Overall experience is so far pretty good. Pros: + Solid timber frame and good quality top + Support via phone was great and honest. Guy suggested to go basic config when I asked his recommendation although he could try to sell me more expensive extras. + Assembling is super simple and took me less than an hour. + Guy emailed me yesterday asking if I am able to write review here. In exchange he offered... NOTHING. And that's right. Great products shouldn't need bribery IMHO. Concerns (not a con): - You can find similar products which costs less in OfficeWorks and other retailers. However as I was not sure about their quality, I chose this one.

I was looking for an standing desk for my wife as she works from home most of the time, that's when we came across ergomotion. Guy was extremely helpful and walked us through the different products that he offered. The desk that we purchased has a great built quality and served the purpose. We will definitely recommend ergomotion and it's a good investment in a long term.

Guy from Ergomotion was a pleasure to deal with. I had a table made of 150 year old floorboards and wanted to keep it but being over 3 meters and very heavy most sit / standing desk businesses could not accommodate as was too difficult for them, or the price was not justifiable. When the frame arrived the quality was top notch and exceeded my very fussy expectations. Then Guy helped me program the automatic height settings and now I am crazy happy. I truly believe the workforce will be continuing to go in the direction of sit stand desks. Picture attached at standing height.

Really pleased with my purchase. Received my desk 2 days after ordering it. Set up was simple as Guy ensured everything was aligned correctly. Aesthetically it looks great & is so easy to use that it is effortless to switch between sitting & standing. Fantastic service & product that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend

I was looking for a standing desk that was sturdy and didn’t make a lot of motorised noise when moving the table. Came across Ergomotion via google reviews and I’m glad I bought it from Guy at Ergomotion. It has been a week of using the table and I am loving it. Guy is super kind and accommodating. I ended up making a change at the very last minute and Guy was helpful in understanding my need for raising the request and helping me with a custom table size of 1200. Really happy with the purchase. And the icing on the cake is the table comes fully assembled.

Guy was incredibly helpful, patiently explaining to me all the sit/stand desk options available and advising which one would be best suited to my needs. This took a lot of stress out of the purchasing decision. In addition his post sale customer service is excellent! I am incredibly happy with the sit/stand desk and monitor arms. Thanks Guy for all your help. Work from home is now alot more enjoyable:)
