"The right to disconnect" has been codified in law.


I am all for solutions to the problem of being constantly on, but this isn't the way to go. I, for one, detest the inflexibility of the 9-5 routine. Yes, people should be able to turn off email when they're not working, but if I want to work odd hours, I should be allowed to.

Peer-reviewed study shows productivity up 46% with call center sit/stand desk experiment

"Stand-capable desks have been shown to successfully reduce sedentary behavior in the modern office, but whether their utilization improves cognitive productivity is not known. We compared productivity between stand-capable desk users and traditional seated desk users in a call center environment. Data were collected daily over a continuous six-month period. We found that increased stand-capable desk use is a likely contributor to increased productivity over traditional seated desk use."


The study further notes adoption went from 23% in month one to 53% in month six.
