Emerging Trends 2018: Sit/Stand Desks

As part of our series on emerging trends in office environments, we take a look at the increasing popularity of sit/stand desks.  Read our first post on collaborative workspaces here.

Why choose sit/stand desks?

You may have heard that “sitting is the new smoking”, but what does that really mean?

Our modern working lifestyle means that the average person spends 1/3 of their waking hours at work, which leaves many of us sitting in the same position at our desks for prolonged periods of time.

Recent studies have found a relationship between ‘sedentary behaviour’ and health issues such as diabetes and heart disease.  Public Health England have also recommended that we all find ways to reduce the time spent sitting throughout the day.

The introduction of sit/stand desks into the workplace has been shown to improve circulation and increase productivity by allowing employees to change position as and when they choose.  This freedom to move while working is why we have seen the popularity of sit/stand desks increasing since their introduction to the market.
