Standing up to a sitting culture

How to create active spaces for well-being, comfort and productivity

Today’s sedentary desk jobs hurt worker health and productivity, yet employees and businesses alike don’t fully understand the short- and long-term risks associated with a sitting culture. As pressure mounts to implement company wellness programs, it’s more important than ever to create a culture of movement to preserve and improve worker health and well-being.  

This session on September 18 at 2 p.m. EDT/1 p.m. CDT hosted by Ergotron’s Wellness Market Manager, Betsey Banker, CWWS, CWWPM, will arm you with information to lead the conversation about sit-stand furniture.  

Through this course, you will learn how to: 

  • Justify why movement belongs in the workplace and classroom, as supported by research 

  • Prepare for common questions and help clients form a strategy for adoption 

  • Learn how to evaluate standing desk solutions for safety, durability and ergonomics 

  • Understand the role of cultural norms and habits 

This webinar is ideal for architects, designers and space planners. North American participants: be sure to add your IDCEC or AIA/ASID/IDC/IIDA number in the form to earn one IDCEC-approved HSW continuing education credit. Register today.
