Are standing desks as beneficial as they are trendy?
According to a new study by Texas A&M University’s Health Science Center School of Public Health, they are — but not just for workers’ health. The popular desks also improved their productivity – significantly. Employees that use stand-capable desks were more productive than their colleagues in standard, seated desks. And the productivity of the standing-desk workers continued to increase over their seated colleagues steadily over time.
Employees that tend to spend their 20% in the office by standing while working is believed to be more productive, here’s why :
- Employees that work while sit tend to only do phone calls to their existing clients for follow up or to ask for good prospects, meanwhile those who prefer to work while standing is believed to make more phone calls to new clients.
- Standing increases caloric expenditure by about 30% over sitting. Taking regular breaks from sitting (altering posture, standing up, stretching, etc.) has been shown to reduce musculoskeletal discomfort, reduce fatigue and stiffness, and increase blood flow.
Standing for prolonged periods of time has its own problems, including increased joint pain, swelling, restricted blood flow, stiffness, and fatigue.
In other words, we have to find the right balance of both sitting and standing, and we’re still not talking about increasing productivity at all.
When employees feel their employer cares about their well-being, they’re 38% more engaged at work. Providing flexible work stations—whether they are individual desks, group pods, collaborative tables, yoga balls, treadmills, bikes, or sit-stand desks—is one clear way organizations can demonstrate that they support their employee’s well-being.
