“As many of us were forced to quickly adapt to WFH environments, our company didn’t have the resources, knowledge, or proper equipment to provide to my team to help ensure that they were working in an ergonomically correct work space in their homes.
The information that you shared helped give my team members practical tips that they could apply, using household items, to make improvements to their posture and their equipment setup. I’ve already heard back from many of the team that they have benefited from the changes that were suggested and are feeling less pain and stress on their bodies.”
