Osmond Ergonomics eBulletin December 2022

This article was originally emailed as issue 157 of our monthly eBulletin at 11:30 on 14/12/2022. You can register here to receive them monthly.



Compared to our other anniversaries this year (company 60th and 30 years in ergonomics), 13 years may not seem very long but we believe delivering our email newsletter consistently, at the scheduled time on the same day each month for 156 consecutive months is quite an achievement! The appearance has evolved over those 13 years but the intent remains unchanged: to deliver useful, interesting and valuable content in a professional but casual format. Our steadily growing audience in a world of email bombardment is reassuring and very much appreciated. Thank you for your continued interest and support.



As we approach the festive season, please note that the order deadline for pre-Christmas delivery of stock items is 12:30 on Tuesday 20.12.22. We shall be closed from 12:30 on Friday 23.12.22 and reopen at 08:30 on Tuesday 03.01.23. As usual, we are making a donation instead of sending Christmas cards. On behalf of all of us at Osmond Ergonomics, we hope you are able to have an excellent break, spend quality time with your loved ones and recharge your batteries.


3d,Illustration,,Shelf,In,The,Shape,Of,A,Head,StockedAt the start of 2022, we committed to a significant increase in the valuable content we create to educate, inform and advise our clients, friends and influencers. To that end, we have published 12 blogs, hosted three full-day seminars with our partners at Orangebox, run free monthly webinars, trained umpteen DSE assessors, had articles in 14 publications, participated in two podcast interviews, created 19 Top-Tips videos, countless social media postings and, of course, published 12 eBulletins! Watch for more new ideas in 2023.



I know I mentioned this last month but it is now even more apparent that conscientious employers are being let down by furniture dealers who have made homeworker supply promises that they can’t deliver. Either the supplier can’t cope with the demands of homeworker deliveries (it really isn’t as simple as it sounds) or they have agreed terms on products with growing lead times or that are simply not available. With years of experience in homeworker supply, we have the stock, processes and logistics that just make your life easier. Try us!


Draw,Lots.,Folded,Colorful,Papers,In,BowlWe don’t take part in many exhibitions these days but, when we do, there’s always a prize draw. We also give away a £180 voucher code every two months to one of the people who has provided feedback about our products or services. Recent winners have been Louise Weald of Wokingham (Mid Downs OH Group), a customer in Oxford (Sept/Oct feedback draw) and Debbie Martin of BWT Physio (DCCI Business Exhibition). You would be amazed how difficult it actually is to give things away. We usually have to send an email, a separate explanatory text and sometimes even a LinkedIn message so that people don’t think it’s a scam!
