Agility is the ability to move or act quickly with ease. In business, agility is crucial for success - especially in today’s digital age where market trends and demands can shift overnight. Agile work encourages us to approach work not as a place we go each day, but as tasks to be completed. By implementing agile working, we provide greater flexibility for employees to work out of the office. Not only does this unshackle them from the sedentary office life, it also helps improve their work-life balance, wellbeing and productivity. But shifting to an agile working environment doesn’t come without its challenges. How do we manage employees we can’t see? How do we carry out risk assessments and ensure their safety when they’re not in the office?
In this eye-opening webinar, Posturite’s Lead Consultant will discuss the ergonomic challenges that can crop up with agile working, while providing a few simple pointers to help you get the most out of agile working.
