Why do they feel so entitled? 

Dear Readers,

'DIS TIME' is the first release from KB's new twelve track CD entitled 'Jones Town, Eight Mile Rock'.

The Height Adjustable Table

In our country, it is common to say that one day the "tables will turn", but, how beneficial is this in office design in the Bahamas? Well, to answer your question, not as beneficial as a table that can go up or down to accommodate sitting or standing positions. Ladies and Gentlemen, the moment, you've been waiting for. Please give a rousing round of applause to Style Office Solutions, better known as SOS who now proudly presents to you the Height Adjustable Table.

At last, you can create an active workspace with an electric sit-stand desk. At SOS, we have realised that the human body is carefully designed to be in motion, and not to be sitting for extended periods of time. Movement is imperative for spinal health, by improving circulation and reducing muscle fatigue. How many hours a day do you or your employees spend sitting behind a desk? Too much? We knew that would be your answer!

According to recent research, it is said that employees should get out of their chairs and be active for at least five minutes during every hour of the work day. Realistically, many persons may view this break for employees as downtime or a loss to the company, however, the with the Height Adjustable Table the company and the employee benefits. Win win! Below are a few benefits we would like to share with you:

Alternating between sitting and standing positions is critical for us to keep our bodies healthy and prevent illness.

Regular movement adjusts the amount of load being put on the body, increases specific body part rest intervals, and thus reduces the adverse effect of risk factors.

Height Adjustable Tables allow management to easily adapt a desk to a wide variety of people (aging, disabled and obese), instead of trying to adapt a diverse workforce to one or two fixed desk configurations. This adaptability allows users to work using their bodies' optimal "Neutral Posture" - which is the work posture where your body is strongest and most efficient.

Height Adjustable Tables allow the user to select a working position that is ideal for their body. Employees who alternate between a sitting and standing positions will have more energy, experience reduced fatigue levels, and reduce their risk of injury caused by working in one body position too long.

Employees who aren't given the flexibility of moving away from their workstations every hour will benefit tremendously by using a sit-stand desk that allows them a break from their static posture without leaving their work area or stopping their work.

The investment an organization makes in a Height Adjustable Table takes a preventative step towards reducing employee discomfort and injuries.

It's not about how much money you make, it's how you save it! The Height Adjustable Table provides an avenue where your company can not only save money, but, also save its employees money. The more comfortable an employee is, the more work they are able to produce. The more work an employee is able to produce, the more revenue a company can acquire. By now we are sure that you've gotten the message.

Visit SOS today and make the investment into your company as well as the lives of your employees with the Height Adjustable Table. See you soon!
