Absenteeism contributes to a substantial amount of lost productivity and revenue for Canadian organizations and the economy as a whole.

The Conference Board of Canada is holding a series of workshops in major cities across Canada on driving productivity and organizational performance by improving disability management practices and reducing absenteeism.
