Most people who work at a desk in an office find themselves in a sedentary position for most of the day. This sedentary lifestyle can create some hazardous health effects. In fact, the rise in individuals desiring a healthier lifestyle has given way for the standing desk to become more of a norm than before. As it turns out, standing desks provide more than just a healthy lifestyle, they provide mental clarity and increase productivity as well. Here are just a few of the incredible benefits your employees can reap if they are fortunate enough to use a standing desk.
Incredible Health Benefits
It’s amazing to know that you can get healthier by standing more. In fact, studies have shown that even the smallest amount of physical activity is beneficial to your health. As it turns out, sitting for many hours during the day can be severely detrimental to your health. Therefore, investing in standing desks can provide your employees with immense health benefits saving your company money on paid sick leave. Although standing desks don’t offer the same physical benefits as a vigorous cardio activity, they are a much healthier option than the traditional desk and chair.
Influence Your Office Culture And Attract Great Employees
Ideally, you want your office to be a collaborative environment where everyone gets along with one another. In fact, studies have shown that the success of a company is truly influenced by how well co-workers are able to get along with each other. Turns out that those officers who are transitioning to standing desks are seeing massive growth within their company. By showing a willingness to increase employee comfort and placing emphasis on employee health, businesses who implement these standing desks are seeing an influx of employees racing to work for them. Just recently a study showed that companies who care about their employee’s health and are able to make it a priority are likely to see higher stock values, higher productivity rates, and more employee retention.
