Hybrid Working

In this ever-evolving world, being ‘at work’ can now involve using a kitchen table as your home office or working from a hot desk in the office a few days a week. That’s why Pivot Health’s digital ergonomic assessment solution, developed using our experience with 300+ clients and over 250,000 employees has mastered the ability to support Employers with the developing needs of the workplace.

 

Pivot Health has everything you and your employees need to work safely in this new hybrid world, be it at home, in the office, hybrid working or hotdesking. In today’s working-world, the word Ergonomics tends to get thrown around a lot. So, what is it and why does it matter to me? Ergonomics is the study of people in their work environment; how they interact with their workspace, their equipment, their environment from the lighting to the cables at your feet. All of these factors can impact your employees physical well-being.

What our clients say:

I found Brian and the Team at Spectrum Optimise to be extremely professional and delivered exactly what they promised to Codex and its staff. The assessments were practical and were delivered with great enthusiasm, expertise and in a very relatable manner so that all our staff could see the benefits. All the accompanying materials and communication was really practical and the feedback from staff on the assessments and follow up was extremely positive.

Brian, Codex

Thank you so much for doing the ergonomic assessment recently. I just wanted to let you know that after your initial tweaks to my chair I felt much more comfortable in my home office. I have also changed the chair since and it has made a huge difference to my day. I would definitely recommend this service from Spectrum. Thanks again.

Charlotte, Cognate

I have been remote working for a year now and had developed some pains and discomforts based on my desk setup. I was pleasantly surprised with how well my assessment went with the Ergonomist. He advised me how to re-position my screen, chair, mouse, and even how my arms should be angled while working. Over the course of a couple of weeks of practicing these instructions my discomfort faded completely. I’m now acutely aware of how to position myself and my equipment while I work and feel much better for it.

Luke, Spectrum.Life
