Webinar Recording: The Role of Supervisors in Preventing & Managing Absence

DMECResources, Tools & Tactics Archives

Workplace supervisors are a key element in disability prevention and return to work — yet their potential impact is often untapped. Studies show how employers can harness this potential, through simple training and reinforcement, along with the right policies and management support.

This webinar presented recent scientific research that demonstrated the power of workplace supervisors to significantly improve return-to-work (RTW) outcomes. It also included the key principles for developing a successful training program, and suggestions on how best to implement it.
