We recently attended NeoCon 2017 in Chicago. NeoCon is the one of the largest gatherings of workplace experts in the world. It focuses on design and furniture trends that shape our workplaces. This is the second installment of our blog series dedicated to sharing those trends with you.
Have you noticed lately that everyone in your office wants to take a stand? Political talk! Marches! Artfully decorated social media profile pictures!
What’s that? You’ve found political discussions to be disruptive in your workplace? Then encourage your team to take a stand on something that really matters – their health!
By now, you’ve likely heard the phrase “sitting is the new smoking.” I’m not sure I would personally go that far, but 7 out of 10 office workers do report experiencing some back pain while sitting at their desks.
There are hundreds of products at our disposal to create a sit-to-stand environment in your workplace. And, the good news is that as these products have become more popular, the price point continues to come down to a level that many businesses can actually afford! You no longer have to reserve the expensive sit-to-stand option for the employees with doctor’s notes – it’s becoming accessible for everyone. Here are a couple of our favorites.
There are a number of factors to consider when deploying a sit-to-stand option. How many times a day will the user actually change position? How much workspace needs to move along with the individual? Does the user want a chair that will allow them to “perch” while in a standing position? And of course, what is the budget?
If you want to encourage your team to take a stand, please contact Rogards today to set up a consultative appointment with one of our account executives. They can lead you through a series of questions to help you select the product to fit your needs, your space, and your budget.
Here’s to taking a stand at work! (Just not a controversial or disruptive one.)
