Ryan Murphy - March 2018
While many employers want to support their employees with cancer, many are unsure of the most effective ways of offering support when it comes to returning to work after a diagnosis. Best practices were offered at the Employers Cancer Care Summit in February.
Irene Keller, director of product development for group benefits at Sun Life Financial explained, "we find that a lot of people that are diagnosed with cancer are very motivated to return to work...and part of that is a return to normalcy. They want to have that focus. This, of course, also benefits the employer because they have that person back to work being productive as well."
Keller notes the important role that managers play as a positive relationship between the employee and human resources, as well as the importance of accommodating employees upon their return to work.
