    IIDA Wichita: CEU-Healthy Lifestyles through Movement & Variety in the Workplace

    Whether people were walking behind a farm plow, working on a factory line, or simply walking across the building to get a file (before email existed), peopole used to move more at work – without even thinking about it.

     

    With technology and the modern conveniences of today, we’ve slowly managed to engineer movement out of our jobs, as well as our daily lives, and the impacts are starting to add up in negative ways. Office desing *specifally seating) has recieved a lot of attention as the major culprit, but is that really the issue?

     

    As a company that designs furniture for the next generation of knowledge- workers, izzy+ understands that our bodeis were made to move, and furniture and seating need to be designed to follow suit. So we’ve gathered current research, combined with our own expertise, to create a dynamic conversation about how to design wellness back into the workday.

     

    Learning objectives:

    1. Learners will understand how workplace design influences healthy behavior
    2. Learners will identify a history of healty (or unhealthy) patterns
    3. Learners will understand best personal healthy behaviors
    4.Learneres will identify best seating for encouraging movemebt and proper alignment.
