New ergoIQ HOME Optimizes Work-from-Home Employee Experience for Agile Businesses
Humanscale Launches Key Component to Its Comprehensive Online Ergonomics Platform
(February 12, 2021 – New York, NY) Humanscale’s latest initiative to promote healthier, more functional home workspaces includes the launch of ergoIQ HOME, a natural extension of its ergoIQ suite. Developed by board certified ergonomists, ergoIQ is the next generation of online ergonomics web applications to help companies streamline current ergonomic programs. With ergoIQ HOME, organizations can empower employees by giving them insight and tools to configure a more tailored workspace that eliminates discomfort and caters to long-term wellbeing.
Designed as an objective, research-based needs assessment software, ergoIQ HOME pinpoints postural concerns, assesses equipment requirements and streamlines the purchasing process for any work-from-home employee population in 10 minutes or less. The program begins with a simple questionnaire that focuses on six distinct areas that are critical to the overall health and productivity of a remote worker: technology utilization, work tools, seating, hand & wrist posture, work environment, movement, rest & break frequency. After the assessment quiz, companies receive a configurable report that summarizes the postural concerns and compatible equipment recommendations identified for each remote employee. The program dashboard then assists company administrators in prioritizing setup interventions, setting corporate budgets and streamlining the procurement process.
“In this age of remote working, ergoIQ HOME prevents employees from self-diagnosing ergonomic issues while offering organizations a professional assessment that’s tied directly into its overall strategy for ergonomics and wellness,” notes Jonathan Puleio, MS CPE, Global Vice President of Humanscale Consulting. “The ergoIQ suite is the first program of its kind that is intuitive, scalable and cost-effective so businesses can better address employee concerns without misappropriating valuable time and resources.”
Though designed to work together as a comprehensive system, each component under the ergoIQ umbrella is distinct and focused on achieving different levels of program support:
● ergoIQ HOME: Assess postural concerns and equipment needs
● ergoIQ FIT: Configure WFH environments for optimal health and comfort
● ergoIQ Learn: Elevate ergonomic awareness among employees
● ergoIQ LIVE: Offer online consultations to those who require additional assistance
Following the ergoIQ HOME assessment, ergoIQ FIT offers users a quick tune-up, demonstrating how professionals can configure their workstations for optimal health and comfort. To support equipment suggestions, employees can access ergoIQ LEARN, a curated library of web-based ergonomics training modules offered in a variety of formats from eLEARNING (SCORM), narrated PowerPoint videos and live webinars from Humanscale’s Work @ Home webinar series. Employees will leave these training sessions with an elevated understanding of ergonomics. For those who require additional assistance, a final resource, ergoIQ LIVE, offers thirty-minute online consultations with a certified ergonomist who can provide more personalized evaluations and specific action plans.
Organizations can invest in these programs separately or packaged as needed to address their unique needs. To learn more about ergoIQ HOME and the entire ergoIQ suite, visit www.humanscale.com/products/consulting/ergoiq.
