To Improve the Health and Productivity of Office Workers, National Business Furniture Recommends Adding Standing-Height Solutions to the Workplace

Milwaukee, Wisconsin (PRWEB) September 30, 2013

For American office staffers, prolonged sitting can be a health hazard. According to a white paper report by National Business Furniture, not only does it cause bodily aches and pains, it can also be the source of many serious health problems – including obesity, diabetes and heart disease. That’s bad news for employers and their nine-to-five office workers. The good news is there’s a healthy alternative: standing-height desks. They’re catching on in entrepreneurial and corporate environments alike, as businesses discover the many health and ergonomic benefits they offer in addition to increasing worker productivity.

The report, titled “No More Sitting Down on the Job: How to Incorporate Standing into Your Workday,” features input from renowned ergonomic experts and examines various ways in which office workers can improve their health and efficiency by standing periodically throughout the day. According to Denise Vester, ergonomist, standing throughout the work day helps employees mitigate a plethora of issues including back, neck and shoulder pain, disc pressure, carpal tunnel, blood clots, obesity, muscle atrophy, and low enzyme production.

Exploring numerous standing-height solutions that offer adequate workspace and computer real estate, the report highlights a wide selection of affordable products that ensure a perfect fit for every type of worker and space. Many desks and tables offer sit/stand functionality that enable people to quickly alternate between each position. From L-shaped workstations to electric adjustable-height tables, office staffers, business owners, furniture procurement and purchasing professionals, and human resource (HR) personnel will learn about a variety of ergonomically-friendly products that can be easily integrated into any office space.

“The research behind adopting standing-height desk furniture and adjustable-height equipment into the office and how it benefits the employee and business is compelling, from a health and productivity standpoint,” says Dean Stier, Vice President, Multi-Channel Marketing at National Business Furniture. “Moving around is energizing the workplace and encouraging communication, allowing employees to get more work done than before.”
