SUPPORTING WELLBEING IN THE WORKPLACE
In any workplace, the bottom line is the health and wellbeing of its workers. A health-conscious workplace protects the company’s most significant investment and ensures the greatest productivity, efficiency, and innovation possible.
Ology Bench supports the physiology and biology of workers to make the workplace a more health-conscious environment.
Improving the physiology of work
Ology height-adjustable bench makes it easy to change worksurface height and posture, and its convenient, intuitive controls encourage more health-conscious behaviors.
The geometric H-shape of the side frame provides a clean desk aesthetics, without boundaries between workstations.
Adjust the worksurface to any height or to one of four programmed heights, including a comfortable standing collaboration height.
Ergonomics Tailored to Individual Needs
Ology is available with an integrated rail that supports space division, lighting, power and worktools, which can all be customised to meet the specific needs and workstyles of the user.
An optional soft edge profile helps to:
- significantly reduce unhealthy pressure on forearms, and
- reduce feelings of shoulder and neck fatigue.
Biology to Benefit Worklpace Wellbeing
Microbes populate the desktop, and 80% of infections can be transmitted by touch. Ology is available with proprietary Bactiblock®, a naturally sourced and highly efficient antimicrobial protection, molded into desk components.
This durable and long-lasting protection for the most frequently touched areas of the worksurface supports the wellbeing of each and every user of Ology.
A height-adjustable desk assistant
Users spend a significant portion of their lifes at work — often sitting for hours at a time, every day. Steelcase developed the Rise app, making it simple for workers to take workplace wellbeing into their own hands.
When users connect their Rise app to any compatible desk, the saved settings are automatically applied, saving users time and headspace, no matter which office building or campus they are working at. With posture and activity tracking and an option to set movement reminders throughout the day, workers will experience healthier, happier and more productive days at work.
Wellbeing is a dual challenge. Effects on user physiology and biology may result in increased absenteeism, decreased productivity, chronic disability and a decline in organizational performance.
People are simply not moving enough throughout their workday. In fact, adults are sitting 50-70% of the time. This sedentary workstyle poses long-term physical challenges, from back and neck pain to repetitive stress injuries.
72% of Workers Report to Work When Sick.
Workers are also increasingly mobile, sharing desks, collaborating constantly and exposed to the millions of microbes on office worksurfaces.
Ology: Designing a Desk Wellbeing
Ology is an important part of an environment that embraces a Palette of Posture and Place. Workers should move between postures, including standing postures. And they need a desk that will allow them to do that. Ology is a wellbeing partner and contributes to a health-conscious work environment.
How antimicrobial properties make a health-conscious workplace
Due to mobility of workers, desks are more and more shared. Steelcase believes that antimicrobial technologies can help and has equipped its new desk Ology with an advanced antimicrobial technology on the most touched points on the desk surface.
