New research suggests standing desks boost work performance
A study undertaken by researchers from the University of Leicester on desk-based staff at the NHS has shown that 43% of sit-stand desk users reported a performance boost after 12 months of use.
Just as importantly, 52% of the people in the study reported feeling more engaged at their workplace after the same period.
Further long term health studies are still in their early stages, and more information is required before physical health benefits can be claimed. It's great to see the increasing interest in employee performance and engagement in the UK, following in the footsteps of Sweden and Denmark where it is commonplace to provide employees with standing desks and other ergonomic accessories.
