How Sit-Stand Desks Drive Workplace Wellness
For the last 12 years, Ergomotion has been dedicated to improving the working lives of office-based Australians with our innovative electric sit stand desks. Now we’ve been recognised for the work we do by a leading provider of corporate health insurance policies – Bupa Corporate.
We were contacted by the insurance company, who was compiling a blog article about ways to improve health and well-being in the workplace. They selected several experts to contribute information and advice to the article and we’re delighted that Ergomotion was one of the expert service providers chosen. It’s wonderful to be recognised for our contribution to workplace health.
The topic of improving health and well-being for corporate workers is generating more interest as employers are recognising the need to take action on the sedentary lifestyles of their staff. Over the years that we’ve been in business, we’ve seen a steady increase in demand for sit stand desks, due to the vast improvements they make for the comfort and productivity of office workers.
Many office employees are obliged to sit at a desk for up to seven hours a day at work, in addition to leading fairly inactive lifestyles at home. Sitting for prolonged periods of time can cause several health problems, particularly since it puts a strain on muscles and joints. This can lead to discomfort, job dissatisfaction and time off work.
Installing sit stand desks addresses this problem by enabling employees to change their posture from sitting to standing whenever they feel the need, without interrupting their work. This results in a more varied workday, as well reducing strain on muscles and joints and improving cardiovascular health and circulation.
Above all, it shows your employees that you care about their health and well-being, which leads to more motivation, productivity and a happier workforce.
