Do you ever work from your bed? If so, how often? I feel like I can’t work without being at a desk with an extra monitor but sometimes I just wanna stay in bed.
I’m starting as a Junior at a new firm and, in addition to the home office set up they provide, they also give a $500 IT stipend. Does this typically cover desks? And do stipends typically get disbursed as a $500 check or they reimburse specific purchases? And if it’s the latter, would they cover purchases made before the start date? I’ve already asked HR a lot of questions and I don’t want to keep pestering them to avoid a rep for being that annoying associate before I even start lol. Thx!
Selling a new ergonomic chair for $125 off! We just purchased this from Amazon but no longer need it. Original price was $350 and we’re selling it for $225. It’s disassembled, plastic wrapped, and in a moving box for easy pick up. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07Y8BXBX8/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_N8GR41SGP5G191N5BHNS?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

Looking for a standing desk that has some storage built in - any recommendations or good storage solutions that people used for under their standing desk?
Had an employee request a standing desk due to back problems. went through the ADA process & the employee obtained a doctor's note to support their request. However, the note was questionable. it was from an acupuncturist, on a word doc, no real signature and just said that a standing desk would prevent pain & improve their productivity, nothing about him not being able to work without it. Thoughts? Also, what do you think about having certifications from non-traditional doctors?

Who has experience designing with a 4K monitor? Do you like it? I’m looking to buy a new 32” monitor and not sure whether to go for 4K. I do ux/web design so not detailed photo editing, and I have concern about designing in an environment that is so different from what most users experience.
Home office revamp recommendations: 1. Autonomous standing desk: honestly the best desk ever! Order arrived in 3 days, even better quality than I imagined.

Oh I have a promo code if anyone is interested: R- 200les 2. Steelcase gesture office chair: same chair as PwC office.
Has anyone successfully managed to get rid of lower back pain whilst working from home? I’ve invested in a decent ergonomic chair, try and sit with good posture and have a standing desk which I use for c.1 hour per day. Any other tips?
Wow my girlfriend is kicking me out of my home office because it's "hard for her to go in the other room and take a phone call." It's going to be so much fun looking for an office space, paying for it, and driving there every day so my future wife can sit at home and talk on the phone and watch TV without the burden of me making money we live on distracting her. Insert wild scream here
I started usimg a standing desk, and now my calf muscles, ankles and knees are really sore. This is bizarre because I have been running a lot over the past 4 months, and have been an avid hiker and backpacker. Thoughts on why one's leg muscles may not be takimg kindly to justvstanding amd working? Anyone else experience this? Psychological / posture / breaking-in period / deeper issue that requires medical attention?
Does anyone know if Accenture will reimburse me for ergonomic things? Such a keyboard, laptop stand, etc
