As the modern workplace continues to evolve, the very nature of our work is changing. In order to keep up with technology and the needs of today’s workforce, our approach to how we design tools and spaces must also adapt. Unfortunately, the manner in which some organizations apply ergonomics to the office workplace is often outdated. They are applying guidelines and design teams which were intended to affect tasks and workplaces that are no longer the norm. This webinar will explore those gaps and discuss the most up-to-date tools and techniques to ensure that the physical needs of the modern workforce are being met. Attendees will learn how to increase the likelihood that their employees use sit/stand devices and why “sitting up straight” is not the ideal position, along with important information on lighting and open plan offices.
