Stand Up For Efficiency

I am sure that many workers sit - at desks, at PCs, at assembly stations at ...

It has been known for many years that it s beneficial to give people the choice as to whether to sit or stand ... and to give them furniture that accommodates either.

Yes, you probably don't provide such furniture ... and you are certainly not alone. It is very rare. Presumably either people don't realise that providing the stand/sit option is beneficial or the cost of the furniture is deemed to be expensive ... and the payback period too long.  Yet I doubt that anyone has done a study to identify the productivity gain that would accrue ... and then to work out a  'real' payback schedule,

We might all be surprised.

Think about what other little changes might have a big impact.
