Safety and Productivity of Onsite and Remote Employees Corporations are facing the challenge of ensuring the safety and productivity of their remote employees as more individuals work from home. The absence of suitable ergonomic furniture, such as adjustable chairs and desks, in home offices can cause employees to experience discomfort, pain, and reduced productivity. This can result in a hidden cost for corporations.
Conquering the Challenge The primary issue lies in the time-consuming and complicated process of ordering, delivering, and installing just one chair or desk in someone's home, considering all the things that can go wrong. Now, multiply that by hundreds or thousands of individual orders. It becomes a complex and time-consuming task.
How complex is this process? For every remote employee, there's an individual ergonomic evaluation, custom chair ordering, delivery, and in some cases, installation, along with follow-up and documentation.The process requires multiple communications between various stakeholders such as:
- Remote Employees:
Remote employees engage with office management and ergonomists, sharing detailed information about their discomfort and pain, as well as their preferences for receiving and potentially installing their new chair-desk. This involvement continues throughout the entire process.
- Office Management:
Your office management plays a crucial role in engaging with remote employees and ergonomists. They gather initial assessments regarding pain severity and scheduling preferences, enabling them to connect with the ergonomist and facilitate the delivery and installation of the new chair-desk. Additionally, they are responsible for follow-up with remote employees and documentation.
Communication with remote employees, online ergonomic assessments, documentation, images, and communication back to management.
- Sourcing Ergonomic Products:
Finding a reliable vendor with a solid customer service team is a challenge. Platforms like Amazon and Office Depot lack sufficient customer support. Additionally, large office furniture dealers may encounter difficulties in managing a high volume of individual orders for delivery and installation in residential areas within a short timeframe.
- Freight Companies:
Home deliveries can take time and lead to communication issues and mistakes, while also posing a risk of damage or loss during transit in residential areas.
Home installations can be challenging, especially when it comes to finding technicians in remote areas across the country.
- Follow-up and monitoring:
Communication with the remote employee to monitor their progress and offer additional assistance or referrals, if necessary.
