SIT-STAND DESKS

HeaderImage06-2014We have been selling sit-stand desks for nearly 20 years but worldwide interest in the concept is now gaining real mainstream momentum. Much of the public awareness is coming from “sitting is the new smoking” stories and other articles based (often only tentatively!) on recent research. As frequently happens, television news reports and articles in daily newspapers give only part of the story and there is also, inevitably, a lot of scaremongering and bandwagon-jumping. The idea of making frequent changes of posture is nothing new but questions and demands from employees makes rational decision making a challenge. The availability of so many products and sales arguments (some conflicting) further complicates matters. For a more informed approach, we have assembled links to a number of useful articles or you can attend one of my forthcoming Sit-Stand Workstations webinars.

We still have free places available for the London and Bristol events. You can find the brochure and online booking facility by following the links.

 

IT’S WORK BUT NOT AS WE KNOW IT

its_work_logo_250At the beginning of June, I attended an excellent conference in Westminster to launch this new publication. With speakers from the public and private sector, there were some outstanding insights into best practice methodologies to accommodate the changing demands of today’s workplace.

HEALTH & WELLBEING @ WORK EXHIBITION

health_and_wellbeingAfter a few years away, we shall be returning to this event as exhibitors in 2015. As the conference gets bigger and better, we appreciate how difficult it can be to get around the exhibition. Our stand will therefore be directly inside the main entrance!

ERGONOMICS ASSESSMENT, SPECIFICATION AND INSTALLATION

easi_250There has been a lot of interest in our recently launched EASI programme which encompasses all the assessment service variants we offer. In particular, we are talking to a small number of clients about the EASI Inclusive system which provides all services and products for one fixed charge. The Customer Service team will be pleased to discuss the programme further.
