Although it seems inconclusive as to whether working at a standing desk has a net benefit to one’s health, you can now add Independent Actuaries to the list of employee friendly and trend savvy companies that has tried and loves their standing desks.
Did you see the articles circulating the past few years about how much life expectancy is reduced by chronic sitting, regardless of physical activity performed before or after sitting? Pair those articles with the articles criticizing excessive standing and what have you got? Maybe too much of anything is never good. But with these new hydraulic desks at Independent Actuaries, we can readjust the height of our desks from standing to sitting (and visa versa) throughout the day and with just the push of a button.
Desks are up! – And so is morale.
