Now here is one sure to cause a stir…. I have been wondering why in our hotels we make our front desk associates stand all day long. Yes, I know they get breaks, but standing for 8 hours a day cannot be good for feet or backs.
I thought about this when I heard that our military forced prisoners to stand on their feet for long periods of time as a form of coercion. A stool behind the desk may be a solution, with appropriate guidelines: stand when a guest approaches etc. This concept would also make it possible to accommodate people with standing and walking issues so they could work behind the desk.
I am interested to know your thoughts on this.
