    ‘Increased physical activity in open plan offices’

        The study conducted by the University of Arizona Institute on Place and Wellbeing released last month, found office workers across four different US federal office buildings in open plan offices with no partitions on their desks, routinely increased physical activity by 20% over colleagues who worked in walled cubicles, and 32% over those who sat in private offices. The more active workers also reaped benefits at home too, with measurements from wearable heart sensors finding they were 14% less stressed than their sedentary colleagues.


    ‘The research validates our company’s core mission’

        These findings raise the stakes for every organization’s workplace health and wellness programs, Now that workstation type has been directly linked to the health and wellbeing of office workers, including stress level beyond the workplace, our company’s core mission to improve the lives of all customers has been validated.
