Office Workers Are Going Up In The World

POOLE, England, March 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

People are different in so many ways and that's good most of the time.  Diversity is great and anyway who wants to socialise with clones of one's self?  However when it comes to the workplace and especially the office environment certain points of difference such as height and size can present a difficult challenge.  

One thing for sure is that successful companies have happy workforces and keeping everyone "on side" in a busy office is a priority.  People with a variety of problems can be given office chairs that cater for their individual needs.  But what about desks and computer screens.  The height of the desk can be critical as too the height of computer screens or multi screens.  

If one member of staff is 5'2" and another is 6'4"  how to make the office furniture work well for both parties?  Should we build a pile of books under the desk legs for the big guy and cut the legs down for the little guy?  Also crucially in today's world there are many valuable workers in wheelchairs.  We must cater for their requirements without making them feel awkward and outside the "norm"  

So we have tall, short, regular and wheelchair bound office staff and it is very desirable to make them all feel at home and comfortable without standing apart from the perceived standards of being "normal".

This everyday challenge is no longer the nightmare scenario.  Office managers can now have a really cool sleek looking desk configuration that takes everybody's needs into account without any hassle.

Look at the superb BT elevate bench desking system.

A requirement for varying desk heights is one problem less for office planners and company managers.
