Outline

Whatever speed non-touch-typists achieve, it is usually accompanied by several 'downsides':

  • much looking up and down,
  • a lot of correcting of mistakes (and the accompanying frustration that causes!)
  • poor posture, with tension or pain in the arms, wrists, shoulders and neck.

What if you, or your employees, were free from these burdens?

Employee well-being, sickness costs and quality of work can all be positively affected!

Staff can sit upright, arms relaxed, eyes up, typing accurately and steadily…

In fact, whatever the effect on your typing speed, becoming a touch typist delivers you, and your business, other valuable benefits - making it easier to:

  • Stay relaxed (physically) and upright at ones desks
  • Avoid RSI risks (reducing the dangers, and costs, of sick leave)
  • Remain calm, positive & focused while using a computer
  • Concentrate on the quality and purpose of ones work, rather than the distractions of 'hunting' letters and deciding which finger to 'peck' them with this time.
