PDX Lunch & Learn: Ergonomics of Telecommuting

October 9, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm


Technology is increasingly changing our paradigm of traditional work. Thanks to advancements in our ability to connect and communicate with others, more and more people are skipping a frustrating and sometimes long commute to work in exchange for working at home or in the local coffee house.

While telecommuting can add to our productivity and lower our stress, there are some considerations that the employer and telecommuter should be aware of when working remotely to avoid injury and maximize a healthy lifestyle and wellbeing.

Join Technology Association of Oregon at a Lunch & Learn hosted by SAIF on Wednesday, October 9th from 11:30 am – 1:00 pm at Pacific Furnishings to discuss the benefits and pitfalls of telecommuting and give practical tips and best practices to improve ergonomics and health of the home office.
