    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 supports the physiology and biology of workers to make the workplace a more health-conscious environment.

    Posture Change

    Posture Change

    Improving the physiology of work

    Ology makes it easy to change worksurface height and posture, and its convenient, intuitive controls encourage more health conscious behaviors.

     

    Active Touch reminds users to change posture with Active Motion: subtle desk movements that encourage users to move throughout the day. Users can create a profile with preset desk heights and preferred intervals of sitting and standing.

    Tailored Ergonomics

    Tailored Ergonomics

    Ergonomics Tailored to Individual Needs

    Ology is available with an integrated rail that supports space division, lighting, power and worktools, which can all be customized 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.

    Simple Touch allows for intuitive adjustments, enabling workers to quickly and quietly change postures by tapping the controller in the direction they’d like the desk to move. Available in antimicrobial surfaces to support a more health-conscious environment.

    Antimicrobial Protection

    Antimicrobial Protection

    Biology to Benefit Workplace Wellbeing

    Microbes populate the desktop, and 80% of infections can be transmitted by touch. Ology is available with 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.

    A GLOBAL CHALLENGE

    There is a clear correlation between employee engagement and business performance. Many organizations realize the importance of employee wellbeing and it’s effect on productivity, efficiency, innovation and employee engagement, yet many struggle to articulate the factors that impact employee wellbeing and few know how to improve it.

    Physiology

    Physiology

    Physical Challenges

    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.

    Biology

    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.
