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