height adjustable electric desks

One of the most modern introductions to office furniture, height adjustable electric desks are becoming increasingly popular with business owners and employees alike.

Enabling you to work sat down, stood up, or anything in between. They can be easily altered to add versatility to your working day.

At Yorkshire Office Group, we pride ourselves on providing our clients with new, innovative products to really enhance your workspace and office environment.

Whether you’re an exciting start-up company, or a large established company, you may be at a point where you’re looking for new office furniture.

If you’re currently considering purchasing height adjustable electric desks for your employees for either working in the office or homeworking, then take a look at our 5 top benefits below to help you make an informed decision:

Physical Health Benefits

People are increasingly noticing the amazing physical health benefits of height adjustable desks as opposed to traditional office desks. Here are just a few of them:

  • Decreased risk of obesity
  • Decreased risk of back pains
  • Decreased risk of heart disease
  • Lowers your blood sugar levels

For the above health reasons, it’s recommended that you split your working day 50/50 between sitting and standing.

Even when sitting, you can also adjust the desk so that it’s set to the perfect height for you to work at which can significantly help your posture. Remember that the top of your screen should always be at eye level to reduce the strain on your neck.

They can also be easily integrated with protective acrylic desk screens. Due to COVID-19 implications, the use of these screens are going to be the new normal as we look to a post-pandemic world. They are a great way to protect your employees and reduce the risk of spreading the virus and so should be now taken into consideration when purchasing any new office furniture.

Increased Productivity

Have you ever felt that post-lunch slump?

Standing up and a change of position can drastically help improve your mood and energy levels. If you’re a business owner or office manager, then you’ll know that employees are often less productive in the afternoon when fatigue begins to kick in.

If you have the chance to stand up to work, then it’s more like to keep your brain engaged and keep you working productively. This can also lead to improved mental health, as more productive working = less stress!

Easy to Adjust

Effortlessly switch between seated or standing with just the touch of a button!

The electric mechanism makes adjusting the height of your desk quick and simple. It’s also an added health benefit as it eliminates the need to manually adjust which can cause back tension.

Adjustable height desks can also help reduce the need for re-arranging office furniture for collaborative working. If two people are sat closely together and need to work on something without distracting the rest of the team then they could easily adjust their desks and stand up whilst discussing and working.

This could also therefore reduce the need to have as many separate meeting rooms and will reduce the need for movement around the office.

They’re Stylish!

Height adjustable desks are ultra-modern and will bring that contemporary design to your office environment.

They show that you take pride in the care of your employees. So can create a great first impression to visitors and add to your business’ reputation.

They are also a brilliant way to add different dimensions to your office. They can transform an ordinary open plan office to a multi-dimensional workspace.

At Yorkshire Office Group, we are constantly reviewing our desktop finishes to create the perfect palette for a contemporary office interior. Therefore, you can rest assured that we will be able to provide you with height adjustable desks that are as stylish as they are practical.
