Another Staff Benefit – the Workplace Ergonomics Lab

Have you been finding your desk or chair somewhat uncomfortable? Are you feeling any eyestrain, pain in your wrists, or other discomfort you suspect may be related to your workstation? Or would you like to borrow a piece of equipment (such as a chair, keyboard tray, document holders, or foot rest) to see how it works for you? Then the Workplace Ergonomics Lab (WEL) is the place to go.

Great Reporter Article- "So You Call Yourself a Hockey Fan"

I was logged on the MyRIT homepage recently when a headline caught my eye. It was a link to Reporter and it intrigued me so I clicked on the link and found that it was such a great story that I thought I'd blog about it. It was actually a "Letter to the Editor" by Alumnus Bruce Hartley titled: "So you call yourself a hockey fan at RIT? I'm calling most of you out on behalf of the women's team."

Below you will find the link to the Reporter

Take advantage of your BetterMe benefits!

One of the great benefits we have here at RIT is the BetterMe employee wellness program, which was begun in fall 2007. It’s based on the idea that a proactive approach to good health is better than paying to address health problems once they arise.

Staff Recognition Awards Ceremony - but no elves

Does the Staff Recognition Awards ceremony just spontaneously occur?  I wish that were possible, but so far the ceremony elves have failed to show up every year.  So, then, how does it happen?  I bet you’d be amazed by the things that go on behind the scenes – I know I am!
