Preparing for a Future of Remote Work

Presenter: Jennifer McGillis, R.Kin., Certified Professional Ergonomist (CPE) and Co-owner of PROergonomics

Jennifer McGillis has over 13 years’ experience working with organizations to address their ergonomic challenges through assessments, training and program development.  Her passion is training and coaching on ergonomics, specifically working with change makers and front-line staff to generate discussion and create problem-based learning opportunities.  Most of Jennifer’s work in the past 3 months has been directly focused around providing support and education for staff that are now working from home

Session Description:

COVID-19 highlighted the fact that many workplaces were not fully prepared for staff to work remotely; finding themselves without remote work policies, inadequate equipment, and a general lack of direction/education for staff on how to work from home safely.

Remote work though, appears to be here to stay.  Several polls and surveys conducted across North America have indicated that staff will be looking for more remote work options and will be expecting employers to provide flexible work solutions as part of their retention package.  This shift necessitates a comprehensive remote work strategy to ensure workplaces are preparing for and protecting staff and themselves from the costs associated with MSD injuries caused by poor home office set-up.

Join us to discuss key elements of a remote work policy including expectation setting, training programs and equipment considerations/provisions to address staff’s home ergonomic needs.
