ON-DEMAND WEBINAR
Working from Home: Challenges, Benefits, & Return on Investment

 

Is working from home the future for knowledge workers? Is it here to stay because it’s financially responsible? Well-known ergonomics expert and practitioner Richard Goggins of Washington State Department of Labor & Industries has joined VelocityEHS’ Director of Ergonomics Research Blake McGowan to answer these questions and more during this on-demand, one-hour webinar.

The experts discussed the challenges faced by workers when the COVID-19 pandemic changed where and how we work and how the advances in information communication technologies made it possible to successfully work from home. These advancements, combined with the increase in employee engagement, satisfaction, and productivity and the possible reductions in real estate costs have opened senior leaders’ minds to adopt a permanent work from home strategy. But, some issues still need to be addressed: increases in work-related stress, blurred boundaries between work and personal life, and sharp increases in musculoskeletal discomfort among workers with inadequate office furniture, equipment, and workstation setup.

Join us for this interactive on-demand webinar, heavy on Q&A, where we’ll cover what you need to know now!
