ONLINE TRAINING

Untitled

As you already know, we provide a wide range of training and knowledge sharing, both in person and by webinar. However, there is also a growing demand for computer-based training and e-learning to meet the need for on-demand delivery, often to a geographically dispersed workforce. This requirement is bound to grow as agile working programmes bring fewer people into the office on a frequent basis. To meet this need, we partner with our friends at Cardinus Risk Management who offer a varied range of nearly 20 different topics, all managed centrally through the PACE integrated back office utility. The diverse topics range from Healthy Working (DSE) to Safe Driving, Fire Safety, Personal Safety Awareness, Corporate Travel Risk and many others. Contact us for further information.

CORECHAIR

We have been experimenting with this product for a few months before announcing it as part of our product range. Having seen it originally at Orgatec last October, I immediately recognised the function and the comfort but it is fair to say that it ‘looks a bit weird’! This means it will not be an instant choice in many office environments. However, we have tried it in the office for several weeks and it is unquestionably comfortable and well worth considering if you are not constrained by appearances. Find out more here.

ATTENTION PHYSIO FIRST MEMBERS (AND MAYBE OTHERS TOO)

If you are a physio and thinking about starting or increasing DSE assessment work, you may well be interested in the London seminar we shall be running at the Flokk showroom in October. This free event has been organised primarily for the London region of Physio First (the UK’s leading professional organisation for private physiotherapists) but we may have a small number of additional spaces available. You can open or download the content, venue and timing document here. To register, please complete the short form here.

EVOLUENT D MOUSE

The Evoluent range is now the most well-established and recognised portfolio of vertical mouse products in the world. It is many years since we looked at the first rather primitive samples and we have seen the brand grow to the point that the name (like Sellotape, Biro and Hoover in their sectors) has become a moniker for generic vertical mouse products. No mean achievement when most people are not sure how to pronounce it! Find out more about the Evoluent D here.

JEANS FOR GENES 2019

If you have a meeting with one of my colleagues this month, he or she may arrive to see you in jeans and a t-shirt. We are supporting the Jeans for Genes campaign to help fund-raising for research in this crucial area. We have even agreed that this is one occasion when Double Denim will be acceptable. We are not promising to carry it off as well as these celebrities but we think, if Kanye can do it, then so can we!
