Sit–stand desks in call centres: Associations of use and ergonomics awareness with sedentary behavior

more...
Renee Gibbins's curator insight, July 15, 2014 7:05 AM

Sit-stand is a fairly new concept in our organisation and whilst we do not operate a call centre a lot of our work is computer based and we spend a lot of time sitting in front of computers not moving. We have started offering staff the opportunity to have a standing desk, as well as installing tall tables in our outdoor areas where informal conferences and meetings can be held to change it up a little bit. This article touches on the statistics but still says that sedentary behaviour cannot be fixed with awareness, but supportiveness from management with provision of the right equipment is definitely a step in the right direction.
