Disorders related to muscles, tendons, joints and nerves (aka.: musculoskeletal disorders) are the leading cause of workplace disability in Canada and contribute significantly to workplace absenteeism and presenteeism.
In order to change these healthcare trends, and at the same time cut the rising healthcare costs, smart employers continue to look for new ways to encourage their employees to take charge of their health by making educated health choices, employing prevention strategies and seeking the appropriate care when needed. However, this approach cannot be forced onto the worker.
The most appropriate solution is to create a “culture of wellness” within the company.
To do this effectively, the employer must support employee health by creating initiatives that foster healthy behaviours, investing in health and wellness education, and by making healthcare services accessible to their employees.
