How an active office improves productivity and wellbeing at work

Health Secretary Matt Hancock recently called on UK businesses to make their workplaces healthier and encourage staff to incorporate more physical activity into their daily routine. Speaking at the International Society for Physical Activity and Health Congress in October 2018, Mr Hancock said: “Workplaces can make a difference; encouraging breaks, offering standing desks, having standing meetings – which in my experience tend to finish quicker too.” He went on to add that “I know from personal experience that having a standing desk can help you get some exercise and improve your productivity at work.”

AJ Products thinks staying fit and healthy should be something that anyone can do. We encourage office workers to get fit at their desks through our range of affordable sit-stand desks and active office furniture. Plus, we have just launched an exciting new product range that will revolutionise meetings and conferences. Designed by AJ Products in-house designers and shortlisted for Product of the Year at the 2019 European Office Products Awards (EOPA), the latest addition is a height-adjustable meeting table that makes it easy to switch between sitting and standing meetings, boosting both productivity and fitness.

AJ Products is committed to making workplaces healthier and more active because a sedentary lifestyle can lead to health conditions including obesity, type 2 diabetes, cancer, heart disease and musculoskeletal problems. Given the long hours spent by many adults sitting down while at work, it is essential to combat this issue in the workplace. Standing up for just three hours a day every day burns 750 calories a week and is the equivalent of running about 10 marathons a year.

AJ Products can make any workplace happier, healthier and more active!
