Over the decades, many case studies have been conducted using ErgoSuite and it’s predecessor versions with the results being consistently delivered. We’ve included several of them here as emblematic of the solid effects of Office Ergonomics in the computerized workplace:
Case Study – 363,326,775 Observations
Yet another extensive research project is presented, specifically analyzing 363,326,775 keystrokes and mousing seconds belonging to a large population of employees. Here is live data underlying an ErgoSuite chart analyzing seven month’s usage of ErgoSuite’s Employee Tools by a large population including a diverse spectrum of job functions:
Above, we’re looking at an actual ErgoSuite Enterprise chart where we’ve chosen to view Trend Lines (Least Squares Linear Regression) which model live underlying data. Used throughout data analysis and in mathematics, these lines represent the actual underlying data’s movement over time. Of course, raw data is never as smooth as the trend lines because it ebbs and flows over time traversing seasonality such as reduced activity during holidays, however, the trend is clear and reliable. Linear regression is an invaluable tool widely used for modeling trends from complex data sets. Within this graphical report:
Case Study – 595,260,706 Observations
This study’s data (below), reminds us of an earlier study by a university research team at an Insurance Brokerage Risk Management firm where they measured the impact of an earlier version of ErgoSuite on their employees using computers at least one hour each day.
The company’s Chief Human Resource Officer (CHRO) was surprised and delighted after validating the results of their safety team’s project of seeking ways to empower and protect employees. A later Safety Online article chronicled their project which exceeded maximum expectations for risk reduction and additionally produced a sustained new 13.4% increase in Work Accuracy:
“If anyone had told me that making simple changes to the way people use computers could lead to a 13% improvement, I’d have dismissed it out-of-hand as not credible,” stated LeAnn Orabona, Human Resource Manager, New Century Global Inc.” But seeing is believing. We measured the results, and anyone can see the difference in the amount of work we’re completing, and you can feel the difference in the positive attitudes around the office.”
Below, we’re looking at an actual ErgoSuite Enterprise chart where we’ve chosen to utilize Least Squares Linear Regression Lines (trend lines) to reliably model extensive underlying data’s movement over time.
This chart summarizes a comprehensive twelve month research project completed last month, analyzing 595,260,706 keystrokes and mousing seconds belonging to a large population of knowledge workers including a diverse spectrum of job functions.
The live chart illustrates the achievable efficacy of Behavioral Office Ergonomics for reducing fatigue, increasing comfort, effecting actual behavior change and, yes, productivity improvement – which any organization of any size can sustainably realize.
When we properly empower employees, who can then meaningfully share in the responsibility of their comfort and safety and learn to automatically pace themselves while working in more neutral postures, then they will fatigue at a slower rate, be more comfortable, work at a lower risk profile, have fewer injuries and produce a higher output at a higher quality.
We’re data-driven people at SmartErgo and so in respect of the data and outstanding results, we’ll keep the commentary brief and simply report on the details here:
Case Study – 404,266,869 Observations
Most people have heard the saying “a picture is worth a thousand words“. Well, here’s “a picture worth 404,266,869 keystrokes and mousing seconds”. This is an actual ErgoSuite data chart analyzing a year’s usage of ErgoSuite’s Employee Tools by a large population of knowledge workers:
