Here at Marathon, we encourage our team members to get up and move. Our receptionist, Juanita uses the Steelcase WalkStation three times a day; before work, during lunch and after work. She has rededicated herself to move as much as possible throughout her work day. We caught her one day before work, jamming to what she says is the greatest song ever, George Benson’s “On Broadway, 1979 Live.” With her permission we are posted this short video.
Steelcase with the Mayo Clinic design the WalkStation. The walkstation helps to incorporate spaces for sitting, standing and walking throughout the workday in order to support a variety of work modes.Ideal for shared workspaces, Walkstation can be placed in open areas to allow for easy access and collaborative use or enclosed for increased privacy.
THE IMPACT OF MOVEMENT
Movement throughout the workday can contribute to an employee’s wellbeing. And nothing gives employees the choice of physical activity in their busy work lives quite like the Walkstation treadmill desk. By offering the option of walking without disruption to the workday, employers can positively impact employees’ physical health and create an environment of engaged and productive workers.
