They will discuss the current design of their programs and share how their Ergo Cup® programs have evolved over the years. The resources, materials, timing/scheduling, incentives, and the costs of conducting an internal Ergo Cup® program will all be discussed. Additionally, each company will share the benefits, both intended and unintended, that they have experienced as a result of their Ergo Cup® programs.
