New Research Indicates Standing At Work Increases Productivityby Imprint® on | CumulusPRO
The Wall Street Journal recently released an article showcasing some convincing evidence that it’s time for us all to switch to standing at work. According to their article released on June 2nd, during a 6 month study researchers at Texas A&M University found that workers were 46% more productive than workers with traditional seated desks. Research and articles on standing desks have been popular over the last decade, however most have been focused on the relationship to health instead of productivity. In terms of health benefits, a scientist told Wall Street Journal that “statically standing is not much better than statically sitting.” The key difference, he argues, is that the standing-oriented desks get people to move more: The standers “wiggle, wobble, pivot, lean, perch, etc.,” which is crucial, he says, in today’s age of “technology induced inactivity.”
