As the premier supplier of height adjustable standing desks, MultiTable.com is committed to helping employers embrace a healthy workplace lifestyle. The health benefits of standing versus sitting are numerous: studies show that people who sit for long periods of time have an increased risk of disease, and being sedentary can even lead to a shorter lifespan. As the risks of sitting too much have become well-known, more companies are choosing to be proactive, providing employees with healthier workplaces. MultiTable.com encourages companies to foster an atmosphere where employee health is not just an afterthought, but a driving force behind decisions ranging from breakroom snacks to exercise programs.
Recognizing the trend toward workplace wellness, more and more cities are encouraging their employers to offer healthy workplaces. Part of that encouragement involves publicly acknowledging the efforts of those companies that go above and beyond for their employees’ health. Organizations are asked to go to healthiestemployers.com and complete a survey, and are then rated on their efforts to create a healthy workplace. Once a year, major metropolitan areas host “Healthiest Employers” award ceremonies. As part of their commitment to living the Height of Healthy Design, MultiTable.com has attended ceremonies in Portland, Dayton, and San Francisco. In each of these cities, MultiTable.com was there as leading employers were acknowledged for their contributions to corporate wellness.
“Over the last few weeks we’ve met hundreds of companies that have these wellness programs, and they’re impacting the company culture in a really positive way,” said Hillary Kuenn, Business Development Manager at MultiTable.com. “It was really great to see that impact. Companies are coming up with unique and different ideas, everything from doing yoga in the park as a team to providing wearable health technology.” ~ Hillary Kuenn
At each “Healthiest Employers” event MultiTable.com visited, they demonstrated their products and held raffles to give lucky attendees free standing desks, one electric and one manual standing desk per event.
“At all three events, people were just so excited, it was great to see,” said Juliellen Deluca, Senior Sales Manager at MultiTable.com. “When they found out they’d won a desk they were thrilled. In Portland, one winner was so delighted, he had to sit down.” ~ Juliellen Deluca
For MultiTable.com, attending events like these is a crucial part of their company culture. “To go in support of companies that are being recognized as healthy employers, is critical for us,” said Deluca. “We want to be a part of creating these healthy workplaces, but not just from a sales perspective. We’re more than just a piece of furniture. We want to be at the forefront of the healthy workplace movement.”
MultiTable.com will be attending “Healthiest Employers” events in other cities over the next few months, honoring companies that have the goal of transforming lives by making wellness a reality for their employees as well as their bottom lines.
