Work From Home
More and more workplaces are allowing employees to work from home.
Unfortunately, not all home offices and work areas are created equal. Many find themselves setting up makeshift “offices” and student workspaces from couches and coffee tables. Working like this however, can have detrimental health effects from musculoskeletal problems in the neck, back, wrists and shoulders to circulation problems and fatigue. Additionally, sitting all day can also lead to an increased risk of type 2 diabetes, weight gain and heart disease.
To help combat the problems of poor ergonomics, we’ve developed a new “Wellness While You Work” workstation powered by SmartLegs by LifeDesk. Every SmartLegs unit is equipped with built-in technology that allows your height-adjustable desk to be paired with software to ensure that users are in the proper sitting and standing postures and that they move frequently during the day. This minimizes the risk of getting those muscle aches and joint pains, but also maximizes the physiologic health benefits that a sit-stand desk can provide.
Promote the Health of Team Members
Nearly half of working Americans work from home occasionally, and, according to a LinkedIn survey, approximately 80% of workers want to work from home at least one day per week.
A successful work-at-home (WAH) program can be a competitive advantage for a company that embraces the culture as they can recruit talent from a larger radius, and the employees tend to be more engaged & productive. A key ingredient to a successful WAH program is a workstation that provides proper ergonomics which promotes the health & wellness of the team members.
Whether you have been part of the remote-office trend or suddenly find yourself working from home, we want to help create healthy workspaces no matter where you find yourself working from.
