Apple provides standing desks to all employees
Apple CEO Tim Cook has been quoted as saying "It's much better for your lifestyle," when discussing adjustable sit to stand desks in an interview, according to a recent article by Business Insider.
All employees at the global tech giant have been provided with a standing desk in order to give them more variety and freedom of movement throughout the work day.
Studies have found links between extended periods of sitting or sedentary behavior and various health problems over the last few years. We at Furna believe while this may be a possible and bonus reason to move to a standing desk, the clear and immediate benefits are in better comfort and productivity. Being able to sit and stand with your desk at the exact height to suit your body is extremely important, and changing position throughout the day gives needed variety and helps to remove periods of mental and physical burnout.
