Jodie and Steven aim to bust the myth: "Unless you have pain, there's no need to worry about ergonomics". So, whether you provide workplace equipment, you find yourself working from a sofa with your laptop on your knees, or if you simply want to understand more about looking after your body so it can keep looking after you, then don't miss this episode. You can find Steven on https://www.linkedin.com/in/steven-howe-96528728/ (LinkedIn), and you can find out more about Bakker Elkhuizen via their website http://www.bakkerelkhuizen.co.uk.

Do you have a diversity and inclusion (D&I) strategy?

It is often found that even with the best intentions there is a core strand of D&I that does not get enough focus and that is disability inclusion (DI).  It can sometimes be difficult to admit to ourselves there is more we need to do, however that’s how progress is made and making a commitment to make improvements where they are needed demonstrates genuine care. You cannot have true D&I without the DI.

Are you confident you are reaching the best talent?

If you aren’t recognised as a disability inclusive business you may well find people are choosing not to do business with you and similarly choosing to offer their talents elsewhere.  Don’t miss out to your competitors, take proactive action today to ensure you are people smart.

Have your employees and customers got access to all of the tools and services they need?

Proactively designing solutions and services, both technical and physical, with accessibility in mind will set you up for success and ensure you aren’t missing out commercially; this also means you will not be seeing increased costs in retrofits or even litigation.

Even with the best intentions there will always be some individuals who require an adjustment and often these are at little or no cost.  Are you equipped to manage these requests? 

If you recognise some opportunities for improvements and would like to understand how, Be #PeopleSmart can set you up for success.

Let’s make change together.
