Cutting Edge Corporate Human Performance Management Programs

Cutting Edge Corporate Human Performance Management Programs
May 16, 2012 at 11:00 - 12:00 PM ET
Hank Austin, President(Ergo Squad)
The presentation of Cutting Edge Corporate Human Performance Management Programs will provide you with detailed insight and information on what is arguably one of the top unrealized issues in the corporate world today. The published rates of discomfort and injuries of workers spending time at computers is between 50%-80%. The impact on enterprise-wide productivity loss is staggering. This has largely been missed by the corporate C suite for a number of reasons including the way that the overall ergonomics issue was politicized as one of the top issues between the parties during the Clinton-Bush election process. There are a number of constituents that are involved with this issue including employee productivity loss, presenteeism, work accuracy, morale and significant impact to health care insurance costs.

This presentation will identify the key issues and their impact to your organization, discuss where these issues originated, list the steps to take to quantify and qualify these issues in your organization, the fact that there are still regulatory rules that pertain, provide a road map for you to build a plan for identifying how to proceed in bringing this news to your corporate leaders without being shot as the messenger and how to turn this big issue into an opportunity for improvement for you and your company. The discussion will then explore ways and new tools for managing this huge operational challenge that will allow you to get your arms around it with metrics and reports. You will take away an understanding of the breadth and depth of this issue and an understand of how building a Cutting Edge Corporate Human Performance Management Program will boost your corporate productivity and can help with LEED certification and becoming one of the top 100 companies to work for.
