March Chapter Meeting

3/24/20 @ 8:00 AM

Topic: Sports Athlete vs. Industrial Athlete

Presenter: Matt Mitchel, GVSU-Head Football Coach

Location: GVSU Downtown Campus EC 101

Industry: diligence in an employment or pursuit; steady or habitual effort.Athlete: a person who is trained or skilled in exercises, sports, or games requiring physical strength, agility, or stamina. Give your new Industrial Athletes a pre-(season) hire physical and some (spring) training to assure they are ready for opening day on the job. A pre-employment physical and job-specific test, coupled with a period of ramping up, will reduce the risk that the first week on the job finds the employee already on the injured (reserve) list. By shifting the focus towards treating employees as Industrial Athletes, you improve overall health and wellbeing for everyone in the workplace. And that’s most definitely one for the “W” column.
