Employers have long realized the various impacts that chronic diseases can have on individuals within their workforce – both from an HR perspective and a medical-cost perspective. And while the pandemic has both exacerbated and underscored the importance of chronic condition management, many HR and benefits teams were forced to hit the pause button or say ‘not yet’ with some of the innovations and launches that may have been planned and re-prioritize where focus needs to lie. This webinar series discussed the chronic conditions that most impact employers from a cost and productivity perspective, examined current thinking in regards to benefit offerings in this new Covid-world, and shared insights and recommendations to best address the impact of chronic conditions on the workforce. Brian Gifford, IBI's Director, Research and Analytics, presented on the impacts of osteoarthritis in the workforce and ways employers can help.
