More than 52% of Brits now suffer from back pain, which sees 11 million working days lost a year. But did you know that 31% believe driving is the main trigger for their back problems, with 23% claiming that it made driving difficult?
What could be a better reason to promote teleconferencing over face to face meetings in the work place?
Back Care Awareness week runs 6 – 10 October – its aim is to highlight the importance of back care. Conferencing can save time, money, the environment and unnecessary discomfort, let alone reduced morale that staff may experience from long driving hours.
Plus, with wasted travel hours reduced, productivity is increased. In fact research shows that conferencing can increase productivity by 30%**, along with improving collaboration by 35% and dispute resolution (45%).
In support of Back Care Awareness Week, which is focusing on back pain in the work place this year, Rocom is promoting its Polycom best seller, the SoundStation2W™ in a buy 5 get one free limited offer.
Phil Hambly, Rocom Sales and Marketing Director commented: “Back pain in Britain is taking its toll on the economy, with more than 1 in 20 sufferers taking 6 months or more off work, as a result. Rocom is keen to promote products to resellers that have the ability to reduce or eliminate some of causes of back pain in support of Back Care Awareness Week. Conferencing units reduce the need to drive to meetings and our Polycom SoundStation2W™ is wireless, which gives the user greater flexibility in the location they choose to conference from. It’s reported that headsets improve user mobility and posture, which are solutions sited to relieve back pain, so we have an offer running for our best selling headset brand, Plantronics, too.”
