Help your employees during cancer treatment

Click to read the Case Study

Employers in the United States spend $125 billion in direct medical costs and another $139 billion in diminished productivity and lost work time, either for cancer treatment or caring for someone with cancer.

And an overwhelming majority of employees with a cancer diagnosis want to keep working while they’re managing their treatment or caring for a loved one who is in treatment.

So how do you keep these experienced employees present and productive and keep your company running efficiently? The answer:  Work Stride.

Johns Hopkins Work Stride is both a web portal with extensive information and resources from some of the world’s leading oncology experts and a nurse navigator, who will guide and support your employees and managers wherever they are on the cancer journey. Work Stride helps employees and their families:

  • understand and reduce the risks of cancer,
  • recognize the early warning signs of the disease, and
  • understand and manage cancer treatment

Work Stride also includes a special section about HR laws and policies as well as a section for managers, to help them balance the emotional and logistical needs of their employee with the business demands of their workplace.
