Presented by Elevar & Ergotron
September 1st, 2020
We were seeing an increase in flexible working environments with activity-based working, hot desking, co-working spaces. Now during the current co-vid pandemic, most of us are working from home and will be for at least part of our working week for the foreseeable future. In this presentation Alan Boyd will present how we became so sedentary and recent research on the health issues being caused by sedentary lifestyles. He will also give some practical tips on how to reduce these potential health issues by designing movement into the workplace.
