In Denmark over 90% of office workers have a sit-stand desk. If a job requires someone to sit 2 or more hours each day at a desk, it must (in Denmark) be a sit-stand desk.

Get America Standing believes one day it will be seen as irresponsible for Canadian employers not to offer staff a Sit-Stand work-station. For the following reasons:

  • Health insurance premiums will be higher if workers are kept sedentary
  • Wellbeing, health and safety implications to office workers of prolonged sitting are getting growing attention
  • Productivity improvements and office collaboration and cultural benefits or a more active working environment has a very fast payback

In Silicon Valley technology companies ranging from multinationals (e.g. Google, Facebook, Microsoft and Amazon) to new start-ups are increasingly embracing height adjustable desks as mainstream to their working environments.
