As employers search for new strategies to manage workforce health and business-relevant outcomes, they often turn to colleagues in their industry for ideas and experience. To support this collaboration, IBI is drawing on a variety of information sources and publishing a series of “industry profiles” for employers and their benefits partners to highlight opportunities to manage the full value of a healthy workforce for selected industries. This profile focuses on the retail sector as the second in our IBI industry profile series and provides information on medical care, absence, disability, performance and lost productivity for this industry segment.
