Standing Desk of Stance Philippines: Change the Way you Work
In the country, we have a common understanding of what an office looks like. The basic component of an office is a work desk and a chair along with electronics and other gadgets necessary for productivity.
A full-time employee normally works at least 8 hours a day and even extends the working hours during overtime. Sitting on your chair for 8 hours may cause health issues due to constrained blood flow and extended abnormal posture.
According to a study, sitting for more than 3 hours a day shortens a person’s life expectancy by 2 years and the ones at high risk on this are the office workers.
In the US, they helped eliminate the potential health risk on office workers by introducing standing desks. Employers and business owners took the initiative to create a better, comfortable and health friendly working environment for their workers by setting up standing desk in their production floor and office areas.
In the Philippines, the concept is new and Stance Philippines knew that the Filipinos needs this tool now more than ever. That’s why they introduced and market their own version of Stand-up desks to the public.
