AlphaBetter® Desk and Zenergy™ and Runtz™ Ball Chairs from Safco Products all Earn the GEI Seal of Endorsement

MINNEAPOLIS, (MARCH, 2016): Safco’s AlphaBetter Desk and Zenergy and Runtz Ball Chairs have all earned the Global Educator Institute (GEI) Seal of Endorsement, placing them among the best teaching products available today.

GEI recognizes the very best in classroom-tested, teacher-approved learning products using a vigorous assessment process. Products bearing the GEI Seal of Endorsement have earned the distinction for improving learning and the learning environment.

"At Safco, we strive to create educational solutions to engage teachers and students throughout their school day. We provide furniture options that help facilitate learning in the classroom and across the school environment,” said Paul Griffiths, General Manager at Safco Products. "We’re honored to receive GEI’s Seal of Endorsement from teachers who rely on tools that help students express their creativity and do their best work.”

A GEI Seal of Endorsement is becoming one of the most recognized and prestigious awards in the educational market for establishing the benchmark of excellence in learning products.

Products that earn the GEI Seal of Endorsement have been subjected to an in-depth rubric that evaluates effectiveness, durability, value, and ease of use. GEI Reviewers submit their qualitative and quantitative feedback for review and analysis by the GEI Executive Team, which determines whether or not the product is to be awarded a GEI Seal of Endorsement. The GEI Executive Team has more than 100 years combined teaching and administrative experience, and includes a PhD, numerous state certifications and a nationally recognized educational consultant.

Each of the endorsed Safco products are designed to help keep students and teachers moving and active throughout the school day. As studies show, movement may help students concentrate better on tasks and may help burn excess energy and calories. These solutions are part of a wider range of Active Workspace products designed Safco to encourage movement within every working and learning space.
