Inactive UK Business
Today we dropped off two EIGER Pro Standing Desks to one of the UK's leading employers to trial in their headquarters. They will be used in flexible working areas (hot desks) where most employees are laptop based. This is perfect for the EIGER Pro.
We couldn't believe the size of the car park and it was totally full, implicating that most employees sit down to get to work. The lifts were in full use and every office area we saw was full of inactive computer workers, sat down.
This is the norm but when you see it on such a large scale it's frightening.
When we told a few of the employees they were twice as likely to have a cardio health issue compared to a active manual worker they were shocked. They couldn't believe that the effects of just standing for 3 hours a day over a working year will burn more calories than running 10 marathons!
We've got a good feeling about this company and that active working will be met positively with the help of our EIGER Pro Standing Desk.
