We’re Taking a Stand!

InstallNET recognizes the importance of providing a healthy workplace environment.  Employees are encouraged to make time to be active during the day to counteract the inherent sedentary nature of their jobs.  Since InstallNET is committed to providing workstations that allow employees to be both productive and comfortable, we all recently gave the sit/stand desks a try and several employees are now using them permanently. 

Sitting at a desk for eight hours a day, five days a week just sounds unappealing in itself and more studies are confirming just how unhealthy this deskbound lifestyle can be. In fact, some people have been using the phrase “sitting is the new smoking” to emphasize the impact sitting has on the body. It is important to use these desks properly by moving around, making adjustments and balancing the amount of time you spend standing with time you spend sitting. It’s not enough to just stand so many employees have begun walking outside during lunchtime. This helps our employees recharge, enjoy the beautiful weather, and leads to a more productive workday.
