Benefits and Disability Management 2015

 

It isn’t easy to attract and motivate talent, or help people return from an absence, but success means a more positive workplace culture and superior employee performance.

The Conference Board of Canada released their Benefits Benchmarking Survey of Employers 2015 report to the public at this event. Delegates had the opportunity to assess their organization’s costs and approaches relative to hundreds of others, and had their questions answered by the expert directly involved in the survey.

The Conference Board also released their comprehensive study on the ROI of specialty medications. The Board's study assessed specialty medications in the treatment of some common diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis.

This conference also explored issues related to health and wellness and disability management. This year’s focus was on substance abuse and mental health issues. Undeniably addiction disorders and mental health issues go hand-in-hand, and this conference examined the complex relationship between mental health and addiction. Delegates heard from leading organizations about their approaches to these and other related issues.
