I am an Operations Manager at Yankee Gas. I had an operational challenge. My physical workers were experiencing an unacceptable level of soft tissue injuries and lingering strains and strains. I had tried stretching, incentives and work process redesign.
About 10 weeks ago I was introduced the new concept of Early Symptom Intervention Wellness. I met with Carol Tschirpke and discussed how her approach would benefit the overall “ready to work” status of my workers. We agreed on a pilot project and based on the results I could not be more pleased. Almost all my workforce has taken part in the pilot program. 80 % of the participants have experienced significant improvement of their symptoms. The program has brought empowerment to the participating employees, they no longer have to suffer with the pain. They can be pain free.
