• Fellowes launches new LOTUS Sit-Stand

        • In a bid to promote active working to boost wellbeing and productivity in the workplace, Fellowes has announced the launch of its next generation Sit-Stand Workstation, the LOTUS, as a direct response to the urgent need to improve employee wellbeing and productivity in the office.

          Through its range of Sit-Stand solutions, Fellowes aims to equip businesses with workstation products for employees to support and encourage active working. According to Fellowes, this has been proven to boost the bottom line by increasing productivity, lowering absence rates and helping to retain and attract the best talent.

          Independent research commissioned by Fellowes, in collaboration with Loudhouse, highlights the business case for a shake-up of traditional working. Its findings show that: 

          • Businesses across Europe currently lose €73 billion annually due to employee sickness
          • 1 in 3 European workers are suffering daily from ailments caused by working at a computer.
          • 60 per cent of European workers claim their productivity and performance have been either significantly or moderately affected as a result
          • And 32 per cent have taken an average of 2 weeks off work as a result
          • 94% of European workers admit to sitting at their desks for long periods of time without moving around

          Darryl Brunt, UK & Ireland Sales and Marketing Director at Fellowes said, “with an ever increasing squeeze on productivity, and retaining and attracting the best talent becoming ever more difficult, our research outlines a clear call to action for employers to take wellbeing more seriously. At Fellowes we are working to create solutions that close the loop on connecting the workspace with wellbeing. This will ultimately help boost business performance, increase workplace ROI and provide a competitive advantage when recruiting.”

          The Fellowes Sit-Stand Workstations has been designed to combat physical health issues associated with inactivity including, the stop of muscle activity, slower metabolism, fatigue and stress increase. Not only bad for our backs, sitting also affects our breathing and digestion.

          The LOTUS arrives fully assembled and can be placed on any surface without the need for new desk fittings, removing the need to replace any existing furniture. It has 22-different height settings and includes cable management to smoothly adapt to working positions, with a large and stable work-surface which allows for everything to be moved in tandem. This encourages effortless movement, improved posture and elevated productivity. The Workstation is also robust enough to last as long as any standard desk.
