Day in the life Header Kyle

I am Kyle Rowles, and this summer, I am working for Storage Solutions as the Marketing Intern.

About the Job

In this position, I help to oversee and run the social media accounts for the company by posting work anniversaries, #WarehouseWednesdays, and holiday posts.  In addition, I assist the Project Managers in submitting leads and proposals into our Storage Server system. Doing this allows the Project Managers to focus more on the customer service aspect of their job, and I focus on the submissions into our system. I also send out internal email blasts, while also writing and publishing different blogs (i.e. holiday hours, special events).

Personal Information

I am from Huntley, Illinois, but temporarily live in Noblesville, Indiana for the summer. I go to school at Ball State University with a major in Logistics and Supply Chain Management with a minor in Six Sigma and plan on graduating in May of 2020. Last summer, I started working for Storage Solutions for a summer job working in their warehouse.

During the summer, I enjoy playing slow pitch softball on a weekly basis. It helps to get my mind off of work, and more towards enjoying my summer however I can. During the school year, I play club volleyball and take on any leadership roles that I see fit within time and knowledge in my fraternity. I am very glad to be working for this awesome company for the second summer in a row! The people I have met and the things that I have learned well exceeded my expectations. What a great company to work for!

Ergonomically Friendly Workplace

For National Safety Month, our goal is to touch upon all aspects of workplace safety. One that goes unnoticed is having an ergonomically friendly work environment.

An ergonomic work environment keeps employees comfortable and less prone to injury in the long run. Here are some of the small changes you can implement in your workplace to make it more ergonomically friendly for your employees.

Encourage Employees to Move Around

Being in one spot for a prolonged amount of time is detrimental to anyone’s health. By encouraging employees to take a short break every couple hours, this will actually make them more productive. By keeping the body active, employees are able to keep their minds active as well.

Finding Natural Posture

Being aware of posture is a small, yet effective way to maintain long-term health for your employees. Sitting up straight primes you for a relaxing walk on breaks, whereas walking after sitting in a slumped position does the exact opposite, and drains you even more. Keeping your back straight and upright will be more comfortable in the long run and make you feel more rested throughout the day.

Screen, Keyboard & Mouse Placement

Keeping your screen at an appropriate level reduces the strain on your neck. If you can anchor your screen in the middle of your field of vision, you do not need to tilt your head as much and strain your neck. Having your keyboard on a level surface, such as a desk, and at a position that keeps your wrists level, will not only improve comfortability but will also reduce the risk of carpal tunnel syndrome.
