Ergonomics Maturity Curve™

Ergonomics Pays

By applying ergonomics to their work environments, companies can experience a ripple effect of benefits. When a company takes a proactive approach to employee safety and well-being, employees take notice of this active stance on their wellness. They report higher levels of job satisfaction and show higher commitment levels. Employees’ positive reaction to this demonstrated care for their health yields a variety of benefits, such as decreased turnover rates and better work quality, as well as improved output, engagement and morale. When employees are more committed to a company, they are more productive and even display more initiative and effort in the tasks performed. As a result of higher employee engagement, satisfaction and productivity, the company projects an improved corporate image, which may lead to better community relationships and a more impactful brand.

A proactive approach to employee safety and well-being leads to:

  • Higher job satisfaction, commitment, morale, and productivity
  • Decreased turnover rates and better work quality
  • Improved corporate image
  • Better community relationships
