22 Years at the Applied Ergonomics Conference

Next week’s virtual Applied Ergonomics Conference, scheduled on August 4th to 6th, will go down in the books as the most unique of the past 21 we’ve attended. Yep, the Humantech brand is that old! In fact, I dug deep into our files to remember when our partnership with IISE began—in 1998. It all started when ergonomist Walt Rostykus (now retired) presented the workshop, “Integrating Ergonomics Into Lean Manufacturing.”  Since then, we’ve grown, learned, and developed lasting relationships (both business and personal) with the association, exhibitors, clients, and Ergo Cup team participants. In a moment, I’ll share some of the experiences we’ve had.

But first, just because we can’t meet in person at our trade show booth (pictured right), doesn’t mean the show can’t go on. In fact, this year’s agenda is packed with live educational sessions and pre-recorded presentations you won’t want to miss.
