A New Tier of Health, Wellbeing & Productive
Training for Screen-Intensive Work
A BUSINESS SOLUTION | Beyond Ergo helps businesses and individuals reduce rates of absenteeism, presenteeism, stress and attrition by training simple changes in ergonomic adjustments, work behaviours and physical conditioning that decrease work-related pain, increasing comfort and productivity, and improving labour cost efficiency.
THE PROBLEM | Our Twenty-First -Century agile, hot-desking, sit-stand, telecommuting (WFH), screen-intensive and increasingly sedentary workplace has created a level of health and injury complexity current office ergonomics training was not designed to manage.
We do this as an outsourced health, wellbeing and productivity training service, building the new Personal Protective Behaviours (PPBs) knowledge workers need to stay fit for work and productive for screen-intensive work.
A PERSONAL APPROACH | Beyond Ergo – Ergo & Self-Care Implementation Workshops provide a new tier of training specifically designed to provide individuals with the new range of awareness, knowledge, work skills and behaviours, and physical conditioning exercises needed to eliminate or at least manage the multidisciplinary range of issues and risks needed to take greater personal control over health, wellbeing and productivity during screen-intensive work (and leisure).
THE NEED | The need for this unique multidisciplinary content and training structure was identified through the experience of personal injury, created through PhD research and continues to be informed by industry needs.
WHOM WE HELP | In the past, we have worked with contact centre consultants, small business administration staff, university professors, freelance journalists and writers.
Office Ergonomics Programs that Work!
Beyond Ergo is an injury prevention training and consultancy firm, founded by Dr Elizabeth Kirk (PhD) in 2014.
Elizabeth is one of Australia’s leading researchers and trainers in behaviour-based office ergonomics and injury prevention training, with a special interest in call centres.
Dr Kirk’s findings revealed the need to provide more than a talk or an eTool when it comes to ergonomics. To reduce pain and increase productivity, to decrease staff costs and increase staff retention, businesses must provide new work skills that allows employees to work anywhere with any screen.
Beyond Ergo provides unique multidisciplinary programs. Our rigorous testing and trials deliver vastly superior results than anything currently available on the market.

Training That Delivers Results
Work-related musculoskeletal discomfort and disorders are considered the most recognised and significant negative health issues associated with the use of personal computers.
Despite decades of office ergonomics training, ergonomics furniture and workplace wellness programs, most computer-based businesses, such as call centres, still find injury rates are increasing, and costs are escalating.
Why? Because training was focused on the wrong things and delivered in the wrong way.
