UNIQUE DSE ASSESSOR EVENT
We had been looking forward to this and our first event on July 12th went even better than expected. I say ‘first event’ because we are already planning the next – we have a substantial waiting list of people who could not attend this one. We have not yet set the date but it will be after the summer. Watch out for further information here and through social media or email me now to make sure you are one of the first to have access to registration. I suppose we shall have to think of a new name, though – if we have already done it once, it will no longer be ‘unique’!
WORKPLACE TRENDS – NET ZERO CONFERENCE
Much as I love the return of opportunities for face to face events, I felt that virtual attendance was definitely the right thing to do for this one. The day started with some truly thought- (and action-) provoking sessions by Georgia Elliott-Smith and Anicee Bauer and progressed through case study presentations demonstrating real net zero action amongst today’s buildings and employers. One item I found particularly compelling was Neil Usher’s overview of the GoSpace artificial intelligence tools which provide dynamic occupancy management to directly impact the Triple Bottom Line (people, planet, profit).
HEALTH & SAFETY MATTERS
Yet another publication has been running our articles. The first online piece was about our Homeworking Done Right webinar series. That set of free webinars has been completed so the dates in the article are wrong but everything else is still relevant because we are rerunning the series from July 21st. The magazine also picked up on our article about sit-stand desks and the problems of buying online without training. The piece appears here.
ON-SITE SERVICE FOR FEE EARNERS
Professionals like lawyers and accountants, who bill their working hours, are notoriously bad at ‘getting something done about it’ when they start to suffer from back ache or other musculoskeletal issues. Inevitably, this leads to presenteeism and reduced productivity. Our friends at FitBack have created an onsite physiotherapy and advice service that ensures quick access to effective treatment in a really time-efficient way.

DSE ASSESSOR TRAINING
We have just added some more dates for our highly-regarded virtual course, taking us through to the year end. We are also offering face-to-face courses around the country. This often works best if an employer wants a small number of staff trained and is prepared to allow external delegates to join the session. It results in a lower cost to the employer and a ready-made venue for us to use! To discuss ideas for face-to-face training, contact Stuart Entwistle, our Training Manager.
