With more companies adopting agile working practices mainly as a result of the on-going pandemic, it is a natural progression for businesses to re-design their workplaces with furniture and facilities to match.
What is agile working?
Agile working involves the conscious break down of traditional limitations such as dedicated desks, static technology, and fixed office design in favour of more innovative approaches to workspaces and working practises. Agile working calls for more freedom around how, when and where we work and the facilitation of different work modes, such as collaboration, as well as the integration of smart technologies and versatile furniture into the workplace.
Why Sit Stand?
A flexible approach to working is key in today’s world. With many employees choosing to work remotely and coming into the office to ‘touch base’ means that fixed working stations are being replaced by collaborative and adjustable working ‘zones’. Not only is this more cost effective in terms of space utilisation, but it also provides employees with the versatility they need to be productive and work how best suits their individual needs. This is where Sit Stand desks can help. Our height-adjustable frames allow workstations to be quickly and easily adjusted to suit the needs of each individual. From a single user desk to a shared meeting table or Sit Stand range is the perfect addition to any modern workplace adopting agile working practises. The desks are manufactured using high quality materials and can produced in different colour framework finishes: white, black, silver and graphite, to fit seamlessly in with your existing décor.
The benefits of Sit Stand
Switching between a sitting and standing position whilst at work is believed to offering a whole host of benefits to employees that traditional static desks cannot:
- Improves well-being
Standing increases blood flow and circulation, which improves your mood and reduces stress levels.
- Enhances energy levels
Standing increases oxygen levels in the body and brain, which can help fight mental fatigue.
- Increases productivity
It has been proven that standing at work improves concentration and alertness, meaning employees will be more productive at work.
- Promotes overall health
You can burn more calories, lower blood sugar levels, and improve overall heart health when standing 3 hours a day or more.
- Encourages good posture
According to health experts, standing can reduce neck, back, shoulder and leg pain by 54%.
- Inspires collaboration
Inspire more collaborative ways of working with a Sit Stand desk. Standing removes boundaries, which in turn encourages communication and teamwork.
More than just a desk
To accompany the height-adjustable frames, there is also a range of hand controllers with a variety of functions, as well as other accessories to choose from. We also have a range of accessories that give the frames added functionality, such as hand controllers that can be programmed with personalised settings.
