Program Summary:

​Arthritis disrupts an employee's work life by impairing his or her capacity to be a productive worker. Our results highlight how these individuals make strategic adaptations to maintain a productive work life for as long as possible.​This webinar describes the common challenges employees with arthritis face at work, and the strategies they use to maintain employment. Data comes from the experiences of 873 employees from seven countries.​
In this program, you will learn:

  • ​There are at least four common challenges employees with arthritis experience at work, such as how to manage physical symptoms, how to preserve a “worker identity”, when and how to disclose their condition, and testing different coping strategies.
  • The Job Sustainability Model helps us understand the process and coping behaviors employees use to continue working.
