Understand from the physical and cognitive viewpoints how ergonomics in office and mobile environments will improve performance and well-being for women. Dr. Landis will focus on gender-specific workstation design implications and the importance of incorporating behavior change, specifically incorporating movement into the day. You’ll discover motivational interviewing methodologies that can guide adoption and behavioral change, as well as health statistics and the trends regarding female workers.
 
The Future of Sit/Stand
Rick Spencer, Head of Prevention and Optimization, Briotix
Thur., Nov. 17 | 4:15 - 5:15 p.m.
 
Most employees have heard the warnings about prolonged sitting. Organizations have responded in different ways. Some limit solutions to those with physician notes, while other organizations offer height adjustable workstations to all. Although the data on reduced facility expenses with height adjustable workstations is well documented, we’re still waiting for evidence on the health impacts on employees. And we’re still waiting for data that proves employees change their behavior when provided the option to change their posture. Join Mr. Spencer as he explores the past, present and future of the sit/stand movement.
