I am Michel, owner of Ergoidee, licensed physiotherapist, ergonomic consultant, loving husband and father of two daughters. Working as a physiotherapist specialized in work related injuries like RSI and backproblems, I developed towards curing the problem at its origin. January 2000 I started my company Ergoidee to do just that. Since I have been advising corporations and people on workplace ergonomics, posture, work technique and health issues. Lately my focus is on increasing productivity as well by using the principles of modern time management methods and smart use of ICT.
You are only as good as your last assignment, therefore I am always expanding my knowledge through study, scientific seminars, and keeping a close watch on the top scientists in the field. I often cooperate with colleague ergonomists, company doctors and psychotherapists, in order to assist each other with large projects and also to learn from each other.
Clients that I work for include large companies, lots of small companies, the city of Amsterdam and several universities . I also work as a subcontractor for some occupational health service companies. For those i also advise in improving quality and creating new services.
The main goal in my work is to create value with what I do. In my experience that can only be achieved by listening and observing very well. Every person and company is different, and will need a different approach. I always try to facilitate and educate, rather then forcing an opinion. This takes an open mind, creativity, lots of knowledge and the love for people.
