Kathy Espinoza | Keenan
Risk managers and Human Resources professionals have focused much of their attention on the needs of aging employees, while overlooking a potentially more challenging ergonomic conundrum — ergonomics for Millennials. In just a few years, Millennials will make up 75% of the global workforce, and they will enter the workforce having used technology all of their lives with developed patterns and habits around that use of technology. Discover practical ways to manage young workers’ comfort and deal with their potentially pre-existing injuries.
