The Message Is Getting Out There!

It has been good to see that the message about the benefit of good ergonomics is beginning to get out there past those already in the know in the sector.

We recently found this article at HR magazine about “Why ergonomics is a smart financial investment for HR leaders” written by Marisa Dissanayake which highlights the health implications of not making the right investment in ergonomics, backed up by statistics such as “65% of all desk workers are currently suffering with issues like back pain”.

The big question is, has it really taken a world wide pandemic for business leaders to hear the message, and have we as a sector failed to communicate this before?

The truth is, things were starting to change in terms of company culture level with Wellbeing moving up the agenda at C-suite level. However, it often takes something happening, which challenges everyone’s ideas of ‘normal’ working practice before we see a real change in perspective.

The main reason companies are now seeing the importance of ergonomic solutions is that they have been forced to re-evaluate how work is done and this is a larger piece around economics and efficiency driven by technological advance as much as it is to do with Hybrid working.

Whatever the reason, now that ergonomics is properly ‘on the table’ and great articles like the one in HR Magazine are being written, the question is, what are you as an organisation going to do with the information?
