As part of a strategic partnership with Standard Insurance Company (The Standard), Altwork is providing its Altwork Station workstation to customers of The Standard’s disability management program Workplace Possibilities.
The partnership aims to continue both companies’ efforts to provide supportive workstations for employees with disabling health conditions and aid in shortening return-to-work durations, according to a media release from The Standard.
The Altwork Station is designed to adjust into four key working conditions—stand, sit, recline, and zero gravity—to help accommodate employees who are experiencing pain or recovering from a health condition.
“From day one, the mission of the Workplace Possibilities program has been to get employees back to work. However, traditional sit-stand workstations don’t always solve the issues an employee faces—especially when they are experiencing significant pain,” says Brian Kost, senior program director of the Workplace Possibilities program at The Standard, in the release.
“The revolutionary design of the Altwork Station allows us to offer a state-of-the-art accommodation to help employees with a variety of health issues return to work faster, work longer and be more productive.”
“It has been personally and professionally rewarding for the entire Altwork team to see how employees are able to return to work using an Altwork Station,” states Rick Spencer, chief business officer at Altwork. “In partnership with Workplace Possibilities, we look forward to providing employees with a workstation that can adapt to their individual physical needs and supporting The Standard’s clients who are committed to disability prevention and wellness.”
