Last week, the National Ergonomic Conference and Expo (NECE) took place in Las Vegas, attracting safety and ergonomic gurus from across the nation. NECE attendees have access to a wealth of information, from finding new ways to reduce workplace related injuries to improving productivity. The conference is also a great place to discover new products and build relationships.
Herman Miller featured several products, including this year’s NECE Attendees’ Choice Award winner, the Envelop desk. Also on display were: the Embody chair (last year’s Attendees’ Choice Award winner), the Setu chair, Sense desking system, Intent furniture, keyboard and mouse support products, the Flute personal light, and the Twist LED task light.
As a platinum sponsor for the event, Herman Miller provided the furniture in the speakers’ lounge and press room, allowing for a comfortable space for speakers and press personnel to relax and focus on their work.
With our heritage of problem-solving design and research in ergonomics, it was appropriate that Herman Miller sponsored a CEU presentation on “Concordance,” which addresses the “two hemispheres” of work—the person and the technology. Presented by Gretchen Gscheidle and Matt Camilleri, the concordance story highlights the research and design behind the Envelop desk and the Embody chair.
It’s apparent that many of the conference participants—more than 100—were interested in this topic, since attendance doubled the number from last year’s CEU presentation.
