Chronic illnesses can be a sensitive topic in the workplace for a variety of reasons. This is is reflected in the responses gathered by Cancer and Careers' 2019 survey, conducted among 1,000 working adults in the U.S. A majority (88%) of American adult workers have concerns about their ability to support a co-worker with a serious and/or chronic medical condition. Some concerns included what kind of emotional support to offer, how much they should ask about their coworker's medical condition and what type of work-related assistance to offer.
The majority of respondents (89%) also believed that management could do more to be supportive of their colleagues with a serious medical condition.
