Stand Up and Be Counted

varidesk-dual-black-zoomIf this is the year you are relocating your office or perhaps just doing some remodeling, be sure to ask your team what they prefer.

A growing trend in the business world is also becoming more and more popular inside accounting firms. Many people want to reap the health benefits of standing up while they work. Accountants are tied to computers which translates to sitting at a desk for many hours a day.

In 2011 and 2013, I blogged about specific examples of this trend in the accounting profession. This year as I have been connecting with hundreds of accounting firm citizens I have asked them if they used a stand-up desk and/or provided them to their team members. From what I hear, first-hand, is that yes, more and more people are standing up, at least part of their day, to work.

Yesterday, as I was flying home from the AAA Practice Management Conference in San Diego, I saw an ad in Fast Company magazine for a cost effective solution. Check out Keep your team healthy and happy.
