Cancer in the Workplace: What Every CEO Should Know
Most people think that the world - and the work - stops when they hear those three words, "You have cancer." It simply isn't true anymore. In fact, a new survey reveals that 77 percent of working women with breast cancer, including those with metastatic disease, feel that working aids in their recovery.
There are 14.6 million cancer survivors in the United States, and their numbers are steadily rising. They include people at your company who are juggling their work and personal responsibilities while also struggling through a maze of pain and anxiety, clinicians and payers, multimodality treatments and medicines, procedures, scans and physical changes that defy imagination and may go on for years.
In this extraordinary webinar presentation by CancerCare CEO and cancer survivor Patricia Goldsmith, you'll learn specific ways you can:
- Help employees balance cancer and career;
- Support their return to work as productive and engaged members of the company; and
- Sustain and retain workers - those diagnosed with cancer, their caregivers, friends and colleagues - so they continue to perform to their potential.
