Find Out Who Uses Standing Desks

The Silicon Valley – the nickname for a region in the San Francisco Bay area of California – has paved the way for other companies to employ standing desks in their day-to-day business actions.

This revolution began when employees at big organisations like Facebook and Google started blogging about their standing desk procedures.

The Silicon Valley is nicknamed so because of the many high-tech, innovative businesses in the region.

 

Yes, it may have started out as a trend and a bit of a “talking point”, but make no mistake, the benefits associated with standing desks goes beyond a little bit of publicity online and a few stares in the office for the first couple of days.

The following companies are some of the biggest in the world, and they’ve employed standing desks for the well-being and health of their staff.

 

Facebook:

Facebook reports more than 250 employees are using standing desks after workers raised their concerns about the health risks of sitting, and the desires to try out standing desks. The result is feeling more comfortable and having more energy.

Groupon:

Former Groupon employee Joel Hadley traded in his sitting desk for standing, and sits only when he feels he’s earned it. He doesn’t have the urge to return to his chair, and considers himself more alert during his work day.

AOL:

Staff interest and desire for standing desks continuously increased as curiosity mounted in AOL’s campus in Dulles, Virginia. It’s reported that around 10 per cent of staff are using standing desks.

The National Institute of Health:

Employers at NIH have offered their employees both standing and treadmill desks to combat health risks associated with prolonged periods of sitting.

Other big businesses that have adopted standing desks into their everyday routines include Microsoft, Hewlett-Packard, Dell, Google, Twitter, and even the FBI!

Where can you use a standing desk?

Anywhere you can use a sitting desk! Between seven hours of sleeping, the car commute to and from work, eight hours of sitting at your job (don’t those hours just drag on?), and television and laptop time in the evening, sitting times could total 18 hours per day!

Is this your view for most of the evening?

The key here is to break up this sitting time, and a standing desk is the perfect solution. Regardless of whether you’re in an office or if you work from home, a standing desk is an unobtrusive way to drastically reduce your sitting time and improve your health.

The office and home, however, aren’t the only places standing desks are being integrated …

Schools:

Mont Albert Primary School, in Melbourne, Victoria, became the world’s first school to trade regular seated desks for standing desks.

In October last year, grade six students became the first in the world to become part of a trial program that aims to identify whether decreased sitting time results in improved health, memory, fitness and learning.

By the way, some of these global companies offered their employees standing desks because of high employee demand – don’t be afraid to speak up to your boss! Inform them of the risks associated with sedentary sitting and the benefits of standing desks.

Love my fabulous new motorised sit/stand desk from Ergomotion. Guy was prompt, helpful and attentive to my requirements and was even happy to customise my desk, making it slightly smaller than standard and I was also able to choose the colour. Beautiful, solid and quiet with two memory settings. This desk finally enables me to start the day standing, checking emails and planning then sitting down to focus for a few hours on a project. I would highly recommend this product.

I cannot begin to tell you how amazing the customer service is. Very quick email responses from Guy Topolansky.- I received the quotes and placed an order within 48 hours. I had ordered one for myself and one for my husband and we both love the desks. Extremely reasonable pricing. The desks came a lot quicker than expected, turn around time was less than a week. We paid extra for the customised wood look and it really brightens up the room. The removalists were extremely professional and helpful. My back and neck pain is reduced from an sit/stand desk. Dont bother looking anywhere else, highly recommend ordering from here :)

I have had my ergomotion desk for 5 years now and I still use it every day. It is just as reliable as the day I bought it. I frequently switch between sitting and standing using the saved presets for my ideal height. The desk is stable and solid and has never missed a beat. I'm really happy with this purchase and would recommend Ergomotion desks to anyone who wants an easily adjustable standing desk.

We needed a standup desk frame, Ergomotion was slightly more expensive than the alternative I was considering however they provided terrific service answering questions and providing some suggestions and assistance on a second item. Guy followed up to ensure everything was sorted and arranging pickup - exceptional service and the desk frame looks quality, it's certainly solid / heavy! (not assembled yet) .

I bought a custom height adjustable desk from ErgoMotion. I researched several other providers and most of them didn't even respond to my queries. Guy from Ergo responded very quickly to every request and question. He delivered the exact ask and also followed through on Delivery and installation even though he is based in a different state. Highly Recommend Guy and Ergomotion for any home office needs
