Hi [manager’s name],
I would like to submit a request for a sit to stand/ height adjustable desk, which would allow me to stand and move more often throughout the day while I work. As more studies are released confirming the dangers of prolonged sitting, I'm interested in the benefits offered by a sit-stand workspace, including:
- Improved energy and boosted productivity at work
- Superior cognitive health, which boosts both memory and learning
- Lowered risk of chronic illnesses, ranging from heart disease to diabetes and even cancer
- Less pain and strain at work, leading to less time off work and reduced time spent taking breaks to rejuvenate
I’ve chosen the [replace with link to specific product of your choice] from Holistic Desks, a high-quality commercial-grade manufacturer and distributor of ergonomic home office products in Brisbane. All their sit to stand height adjustable desks come with a Lifetime of The Furniture Warranty.
Their team will even arrange to pick up and refund products if we decide any don't work for us (no questions asked, if within 15 days of purchase). If you could confirm your approval, I’ll get in touch with [department or internal contact’s name] to place the order.
