Workplaces across Canada are looking towards developing programming to support the health and well-being of their employees but often struggle to identify best practices.

Join Dr. Tyler Amell for a 60-minute webinar that is designed to help employers digest the scientific evidence behind absence and disability management in a meaningful way. Dr. Amell will explore published, scientific evidence on absence and disability in the workplace, including the spectrum from the well-being of employees who are healthy and productive to supporting employees recovering their health.

Webinar Highlights

In this webinar, Dr. Amell will cover best practices in the following areas:

  • strategic workplace health
  • absence and disability management
  • early intervention
  • stay-at-work (SAW)
  • return-to-work (RTW)
  • disability prevention
  • health, engagement and productivity

Moving beyond just theory, Dr. Amell will explain how best practices can be implemented with a real-life case study. Dr. Amell will explore how a large public sector organization has developed the business and operational needs, intervention process and results of an evidence-informed and outcome-driven approach to managing absence and disability with a strong emphasis on early intervention.
