It may sound unbelievable, but 1 in 4 of your employees is living with arthritis. They're working through debilitating pain that makes everyday tasks a challenge, from typing and sitting at a desk to getting ready for the workday or traveling. Equally concerning, the vast majority of these employees regularly feel depressed, anxious and alone.
Although not often recognized as a serious issue by many employers, arthritis is the second largest driver of employee health care costs and is responsible for 172 million lost workdays and $304 billion in medical costs and lost earnings each year.
