The goal of GEHFM is to promote the benefits of a healthy lifestyle to employers and their employees through worksite health promotion activities and environments. This makes May the perfect time to make a commitment to combat sitting disease and promote overall healthy living in your workplace.
The healthy workplace movement is gaining steam, and companies are finding ways large and small to make a difference in the health and wellness of their employees. Standing and adjustable height desks are an extremely important component of a healthy workplace because exercise alone won’t alleviate the ill effects of sitting disease. Brief, frequent intervals of standing and/or moving are necessary to keep sitting disease at bay. So while you’re chatting with coworkers at the 5k or the company gym, make the case for adjustable workstations like VARIDESK and spread the word about standing up against sitting disease!
You can check the GEHFM website to find events and activities in your area. If your workplace has implemented an adjustable desk solution with VARIDESK, get in touch with us and tell us how it’s impacted your health and your work. We’re working to raise awareness about the dangers of sedentary workplaces, and your feedback will help us craft a campaign that educates and inspires companies across the globe to use VARIDESK stand up desks to create a happier, healthier environment for their employees.
