How would your contact centre metrics improve if you decrease rates of absenteeism, presenteeism, stress and attrition by 10%?
◊ Less than 10% of people implement current ergonomic training they have attended into their day-to-day jobs. This poor implementation is not the fault of trainees. It’s the way training has been delivered.
◊ Over 80% of contact centre consultants report work-related musculoskeletal aches and pains, and over 11% suffer from chronic pain. Chronic pain costs the Australian economy over $7Bn in lost productivity every year.
◊ Our increasingly agile, hot-desking, sit-stand, telecommuting, multi-screen-using workforce has created a level of complexity current office ergonomics training was not designed to manage. While you have done all the currently available office ergonomics training with your teams, the Champ Workshop provides a new tier of training specifically designed to bridge this training gap.
◊ Developed through PhD research, talks and workshops translate office ergonomics information into personal protective behaviours (PPB), the new self-care competencies that make office ergonomic recommendations easy to personalise and quick to apply to any work (or leisure) situation – providing immediate benefits to your consultants and increasingly reducing rates of absenteeism, stress and attrition.
Beyond Ergo Training
Dr Kirk builds practical front-line solutions to help contact centres reduce high rates of absenteeism, stress and attrition by coaching team leaders and managers in making simple changes that decrease work-related pain, increasing comfort and productivity, and improving operational and labour cost efficiency.
Our feedback from the lunchbox talk was unanimously positive… BA&A would definitely recommend your talk as it was short, informative and fun. It hit the balance with info, tips and manageable next steps,… We especially appreciated the ease of setting up and follow up with your amazing communication – thanks so much!”
“I just wanted to send you some feedback on the Beyond Ergo session I attended today.
I found this extremely interesting and have already applied some of the knowledge/techniques learnt today. I believe a full workshop on this would be extremely beneficial. As a supervisor, I could see the knowledge gained and then monitoring staff postures and console ergonomics and assisting and guiding staff could potentially minimise risk/injury.
The Supervisors encouraging, promoting and leading by example with simple things like stretching becoming common practices whilst at the console is a very realistic goal.
Thanks for the opportunity to attend”.

Does your office (or workforce) look the same as it did 15 years or even 10 years ago?
