After-hours emails are now illegal in France.

"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.

Fitwel

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the General Services Administration (GSA) have now created a new certification, called Fitwel, to encourage healthier workplaces, where many people spend too much of their lives. After piloting the scoring algorithm in 89 federal government buildings in 2015, they are now partnering with the Center for Active Design, a nonprofit established by then-New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg in 2013, to make it available to any workplace.

Another, possibly cheaper, option for companies who want to create and certify their workplaces as "healthy".
