Needham Does it Faster with Tracey Burg!

On March 7th Tracey Burg, RD led the JSI Workshop to Go “Can You Do it Faster,” at Needham High School, where staff learned new ways to increase their productivity as well as how to save energy, time, and money in the workplace.

The training took place on a snowy spring morning. Tracey got the group moving and ready to learn while explaining the importance of incorporating stretching into their day, especially when working on time-consuming tasks.  She even had the group practice the stretches!

Tracey also led the group in a discussion about how the staff could cut time and energy down on their most time consuming daily task.


There was also some friendly competition going on during this JSI training! Tracey had two volunteers demonstrate the difference in efficiency of using one hand vs. two hands when preparing a salad.
