Can you believe that it has now been a full year since lockdown measures and work from home orders were put in place across North America and the world? Some days have felt like time dragged on while other days passed in the blink of an eye! As we look back on the year that has been, we want to present you with all of the work from home resources we have shared, just in case you missed any!
Like many companies in 2020 we pivoted our available services to offer them virtually to ensure that workers could receive ergonomic support while safe in their homes.
Virtual Home Office Assessments
We offer Virtual Home Office Assessments that provide individuals with practical workstation adjustments, equipment recommendations, and posture coaching to reduce pain and discomfort while working from home.
