    What Are The Benefits of Sit/Stand Office Desks?

    Last updated 19 days ago

    Have you heard of standing office desks? This wonderful piece of office furniture may do more than just help you keep your office organized and comfortably perform your job duties. Standing office desks may actually help you get—and stay—healthy. Here are some of the health benefits of utilizing a standing office desk:

    Longer Life Expectancy

    A recent study found that people who stood more lived longer. You may think that regular exercise would offset a sedentary day at the office, but the same study shows that physical activity is not an antidote for time spent sitting. If you can use a standing office desk, you may be able to add years to your life.

    Decreased Obesity

    Another study discovered that, with all other factors being equal, people who stood more burned more calories, weighed less, and were less likely to be obese. A standing office desk gives you more opportunities to move, and each movement burns more calories and helps your body stay active and healthy. For an even greater impact, moving from side to side or shifting your feet can burn more calories while standing.

    Reduced Risk of Diseases

    Standing for long periods of time can help decrease your risk of developing certain diseases. Cancer, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and other metabolic diseases can be staved off with more movement, lower body weight, and better circulation. Since these diseases are killers of so many people in the United States, lowering your risk is vital. A desk that can help do just that sounds amazing!

    Tips for Choosing the Right Fabrics for Office Furniture

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Office furniture is functional, but it can also make a lasting impression on employees as well as clients and visitors to your business. It’s important to have office furniture that reflects the image you wish to project. There are a number of different options for fabrics when it comes to office furniture. You should choose fabrics that will be comfortable for short- and long-term use, as well as fabrics that are durable and will stand the test of time. In addition to being comfortable, your office furniture upholstery should be attractive and easy to clean. That way, you can keep the furniture looking newer for longer, saving you money in the long run.

    Keeping Employees Comfortable Throughout the Work Day

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Running a business is no easy task. In addition to having a product or service that stands out from the competition, you must also have a reliable workforce full of productive, dedicated employees. Your business is only as good as your employees, which is why it’s so important to make sure they feel valued, comfortable and appreciated. Comfort is essential to productive employees, as workers who experience discomfort or pain are less likely to feel committed to their jobs. Having ergonomic office furniture can help provide a more comfortable and physically stress-free environment for employees. Read on to learn more. 

    Good Ergonomics

    You may have heard a lot about ergonomics in the workplace, and for good reason. People who sit at their desks for the majority of the day are susceptible to certain musculoskeletal issues including back pain, neck pain, stiffness, and even disorders such as carpal tunnel syndrome. With a comfortable, ergonomic workstation, many of these problems can be avoided. Take the time to listen to your employees’ questions and concerns regarding their work environment. Providing an ergonomic work space, whether with a stock item or custom office furniture, can make your employees feel more comfortable and more valued in their jobs.

    Good Posture

    An ergonomic work area is a great place to start in preventing work-related pain and injuries. Additionally, you may want to conduct a workshop on proper posture for your employees, as good posture can help reduce pain even more. Consider posting signs about posture or posters that explain simple exercises to increase core strength around the break area, and your employees may be more likely to heed your advice.

    Good Environment

    Employee comfort is more than just a physical matter. Mental and emotional comfort are also important in the workplace. Maintain a clean, well-lit, and inviting office to make both employees and visitors feel welcome. If you have outdated office furniture in the office or waiting area, consider upgrading to give your business a modern and sophisticated look.

    Dealing with Back Pain at Work

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Sitting at a desk for many hours can take a toll on your physical health. Back pain is common among people who spend the majority of their time hunched over a computer, and among those who must lift heavy objects instead of sitting in office furniture. Watch this video to learn how to deal with back pain at work.

    It is important to maintain good posture and a neutral spine position throughout your day, especially when you’re spending a good deal of time sitting down. Use a workstation that fits your body type and work environment and be sure to take breaks to get up and walk around frequently. You should also stretch throughout the day to relieve the pressure put on your back during extended periods of sitting.

    If you or your employees are experiencing back pain at work, it’s time to consider investing in new, properly sized or ergonomically shaped office furniture. Call Office Furniture Expo Atlanta at (678) 894-1869 to discuss what your office needs to be ergonomically sound today and in the future.
