Trials of Standing Desks in Manchester Coucil
We have put 3 standing desks (sit-stand) into one of Manchester's largest and most forward thinking Council offices for a 6 week trial.
Today we attended their Health and Wellbeing day to explain face to face with employees the benefits of active working and standing desks. The response was overwhelmingly positive.
In the UK just 1% of office workers use any form of sit-stand desk compared to Scandinavia's 90%.
The employees were really quite unaware of how long they were sedentary and the implications of it.
Everyone who we spoke with were extremely keen to test the JackDesk's and EIGER'S.
We'll keep you informed.
