Employers Benefit From The Standing Desk Investment
by Kenny Rhoads
Throughout history, the Standing Desk has had a presence for both individuals and certain business environments. From Ernest Hemingway’s desk-of-choice to many commercial enterprises in the 1800 and 1900’s like banks and government offices, the standing desk has been a fixture for enlightened employers and artists alike.
With overwhelming research conducted in the 21st century on the hazards of prolonged sitting that leads to numerous diseases—from back injuries, obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancers— adjustable height sit stand desks have made a resurgence in frequency and popularity in the modern office environment. In fact, this resurgence has prompted the savvy employer to recognize and capitalize on both financial and productivity benefits in their staff when incorporating adjustable height tables and desks in their offices.
Reduced illness and injury from using standing desks is one such benefit. As research has confirmed evidence of disease processes from prolonged sitting, many employers are recognizing that time lost and increased insurance premiums can be ameliorated by being proactive in the workstations they provide for their staff.
Evidence also shows that sitting retards mental acumen, while working at adjustable height standing desks has the opposite effect. The spine is ‘opened up’ while standing, thereby increasing blood flow to the brain. What’s more, when a person is standing, they are more likely to move about, further facilitating mental clarity and physical flexibility.
