THEY SAY IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO RAISE A CHILD, WELL, IT TAKES A VILLAGE OF VOLUNTEERS TO WIN AN ERGO CUP®

2018 Applied Ergonomics Conference ERGO Cup® Competition Co-Chair
Whenever the Applied Ergonomics Conference ends, I leave on a high. Adrenaline is still pumping in my veins. My co-chair, Jeff Hoyle, and I have just finished a “live stream” of the conference award ceremony and announced the winners of the internationally recognized ERGO Cup® competition. After months of preparation, we have finally closed the conference with an excitement that is contagious. We take a few minutes to acknowledge the winners by taking selfies with the teams and thanking them for the months of hard work & preparation.
The internationally recognized Ergo Cup® competition, sponsored by the Ergonomics Center of North Carolina and Edward P. Fitts Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at North Carolina State University and presented by IISE, provides an exciting opportunity for companies to highlight their successful ergonomic solutions. The general theme across all Ergo Cup® categories is innovation. Five Ergo Cup® awards are presented annually for outstanding solutions through training, engineering and teamwork.
To be a finalist at the competition is an honor. To win is an achievement of a lifetime! For these teams, it’s like winning an Oscar.
