About Stretching the Truth – The Truth About Workforce Stretching
This archived webinar originally aired September 20th, 2017.
“A webinar for Ergonomics Professionals who field both the praise and criticism association with Workforce Stretch & Flex Programs. We’ll provide the background, resources and experience to help you navigate this hotly contested topic with an up-to-date perspective, a discerning clarity and a sharpened focus.”
The current trend toward Workforce Stretch & Flex Programs is not so new. Characterized as unnecessary, irrelevant and even harmful by at least one commercial ergonomics vendor, there’s a more time-honored side to consider. Some critics have even gone so far to misrepresent research to build their paper-thin case that’s flimsy, at best.
We’ll address the true conclusions of that misrepresented research, how it is actually being appropriately applied to benefit employers and their workforce, and the promising published data about the future of Workforce Stretch & Flex. Lastly, we’ll take a historical look at practices and truths we hold to be self-evident, and why it is important to confront spurious challenges when they arise in the marketplace of ideas.

Characterized as a necessary, innovative and competitive advantage that inspires workforce collaboration, there may be another side to consider. Research is now showing the collaborative benefits from open office design are too often offset by numerous work distractions and possibly even some legitimate health concerns. It’s good policy to stay informed of every side of this topic.
