Unless you are lucky enough to work from home, it can be quite difficult to get the perfect setting for the working office. There will be the very tall colleague who needs more arm and leg room -perhaps a standing desk might suit them, so at the touch of a button, they can raise the desk height to stand and work and then if needed, it can be lowered to sit again. There are options these days that are so far removed from the old fashioned desks in the days of old. Do you remember the black and white films that might have a scene in a civil service office with an old fashioned typing pool – rows and rows of ladies sitting banging away on their Royals or Olympias. All at exactly the same height – no allowance made for the longer legged female in those days. Office life is so much more accommodating these days!
