Health in the dispatch center is a huge issue. Along with the massive amount of stress that the job offers there are also bad eating habits and minimal exercise opportunities while working. But, what if there was something you could do about the exercise aspect of it? What if you had a treadmill or exercise bike attached to your console? Xybix, a dispatch furniture company has taken on the task of assisting dispatchers’ to take the first steps toward better health with the addition of a treadmill or bike to their workstation.
In this podcast, Kathleen, Xybix's Director of Marketing will talk about Xybix's ergonomic furniture workstations, as well as health in the dispatch center and more. We will learn about Xybix as a company as well as some facts and frequently asked questions about the treadmill and bike. The company also publishes blogs with health topics and techniques for the dispatch center.
We hope you will enjoy this podcast!
