Workplace Trend: Height Adjustable Tables

Freestanding height-adjustable tables play an increasingly important role in contemporary office planning, offering flexibility, user control and ergonomic performance.
Continued studies prove that height-adjustable tables have a positive impact not only on an individual's health and well-being, but on companies as a whole, who are seeing an increase in morale and decrease in employee absenteeism. Knoll does an excellent job at exploring this concept more in one of their white papers here.  
 
We have a few height adjustable table in our showroom and will actually be implementing more height adjustable tables in our new showroom re-design (spoiler!) that is about to start. The table makes an immediate impact on our worker's health and is a great showcase piece to our perspective clients looking to make strides in their own workplaces.
 
 
Since height adjustable tables are a growing trend in the workplace, here are 3 tips to help set up an ergonomic station with a height adjustable table:
  1. Your table height or input devices should be just below elbow height when sitting or standing
  2. Monitors should be at eye level and an arm's length away 
  3. While standing, distribute your weight evenly

RJE Cincy Keep Cincinnati Beautiful Volunteer Saturday

On October 4th, the Cincinnati team partnered with Keep Cincinnati Beautiful to spruce up Pam's Garden!
 
Keep Cincinnati Beautiful (KCB) is an organization that has been improving the Cincinnati landscape for over 30 years. KCB strives to provide programs that are based on changing behavior and cultivating community pride, and they rely on public and private partnerships to fuel their mission and programs. KCB focuses on providing sustainable results through grassroots initiatives and works to improve not only the environment in which we live, but the quality of our lives as well. To learn more about KCB, and to explore the great things that they are doing in Cincinnati, check out their story here. 
 

Pam's Garden is a special spot for KCB, as it commemorates their former Executive Director, but it is also appreciated by many people living in the downtown area and/or attending Findlay Market. Plus, beautified spots tend to have less litter which increases property values, reduces crime and blight, and improves quality of life. Check out the awesome work that we did!
