WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Some employees with the City of Wilmington have found a new way to stay healthy and productive in the workplace.

Dylan Lee, Director of GTV, and Malissa Talbert, a public information officer with the city, both work standing up.

The two employees recently received stand-up desks. The desks can be raised or lowered via an electronic motor so that the employees can work sitting or standing.

Lee said the desk was close to $900, which is cheaper than a lot of other desks on the market. He added that his previous desk had been used for 40 years and needed to be replaced.

Lee said that the health benefits of standing prompted him to choose the stand-up desk. He added that he also fidgets a lot and standing while he works helps him stay focused.
