Last week an article appeared in my city's daily newpaper, The Richmond Times Dispatch. The major point of the article was that more and more companies are offering their employees a sit to stand desk solution if the employee desires to stand part of the workday. It emphasized there are hundreds of companies who are now offering the adjustable height desk option and named Google, Microsoft and Dell as among them. The article also interviewed an employee who was using a sit to stand desk. He said he felt more alert, focused and energized as a result of standing part of the workday. This comment validates the universal response we receive from our surveys at the Desktop Elevator's OiC Innovations. All of our Desktop Elevator users tell us that being able to stand part of the workday makes them more alert, focused and energized. And we know from our surveys, these people are standing an average of 65% of the workday.
The powerful message being conveyed here is that employees, because they are more alert, focused and energized when standing part of the workday, are more efficient and productive. And greater productivity translates into more profits for their companies. Therefore, if you are an employer or work in a capacity responsible for budgetary development, take heed, for the 2013 budget preparation season is upon us. Include in your 2013 budget the sit and stand desk option for your employees.
Remember, this is an expense, not a cost, because this is an investment that will pay your Company greater dividends. If you are an employee and would like to stand part of the workday, make your wishes known to your supervisor or manager so they can take your desires up the chain of command. Employers and employees, alike, can help their companies to be added to the growing list of companies who offer the adjustable height desk option.
