Flexible Working (sharing desks) - monitor height (Usefulness of responses rated as 5 out of 5)

We are moving to a culture where colleagues will share desks with monitors straight onto desks, and the pc base beneath. But we have concerns about the adjustable height of the monitor, i.e. what is the minimum height the top of the monitor should reach (relative to that desk surface) to enable a good posture for the majority of colleagues.

Does anyone have any views or know of a specific standard which details the minimum height the top of the monitor should be when designing workstation layouts?
