HDA Engineering recently provided a VARIDESK (http://ca.varidesk.com) for each workstation to address the negative side-effects of being seated for the majority of the working day.

The VARIDESK allows the user to work from either a standing or a sitting position, and makes it easy to switch positions as often as they like. The VARIDESK is a retrofit adjustable platform that sits on top of the existing desk and was very simple to incorporate into each work station.

Some employee benefits of a standing desk that we have found are:

  • Increase in focus and attention span

  • Increase in overall energy

  • Increase in posture and core strength

  • Employees becoming more engaged with each other
