October was National Ergonomics month. People came from far and wide to jump, or more accurately, stand up to our Stand-Up Pioneers Facebook photo contest. Okay, well not really, but you get the idea. Our Stand-Up Pioneers were very excited about the opportunity to create and submit their DIY innovations to us. Stand-Up Pioneers are using laptops and desktops on everything from boxes to upside down garbage cans, to stacking their laptops on back of their seats.
Our two lucky winners are: Nikki and Kevin, both from Auburn, ME.
Kevin thinks outside the box, or in this case, on top of a bucket.
Kevin had this to say about his Stand-Up Pioneers experience:
“I am absolutely loving my new Ergotron WorkFit-D, Sit-Stand Desk. Having the option to sit and stand has been absolutely amazing. The quality of this product is top notch and I would highly recommend Ergotron products to anyone.
Thank you Ergotron for being such a leader in the ergonomic field and for allowing those who work at a computer station to have the flexibility they need. I am very impressed.”
Kevin is now one happy pioneer!
You may have seen Nikki’s pic before from a previous blog post. Nikki claims to have stumbled on our Stand-Up Pioneers FB photo contest “by fate.” She previously worked beside a standup desk at her old job. Nikki emphasizes, “I couldn’t imagine going back to sitting all day.”
Nikki decided to steal a box from one of the offices new ergo chairs to make her stand up desk. She said that EVERYONE in the office got a good laugh at her “new” desk.
Now, Nikki says, “I’m slowly converting my company to become Stand-Up Pioneers one person at a time, AND my co-workers are going to be so jealous.” Well Nikki, I’m sure no one’s laughing at you now.
