Research has shown that sitting at a desk for too long can lead to long-term health problems. Which is why, over the past few years, standing desks — which can easily cost hundreds of dollars — have become more popular in offices around the world. A growing number of managers and owners believe that their use can help workers to lose weight, reduce back pain and be more alert.
"Study: Standing Desks Could Be Harmful to Your Productivity and Your Health" is from the February 26, 2018 Business section of The Washington Post. It was written by Gene Marks and narrated by Sam Scholl.
