Manager's Kit

After you’ve told your manager about your diagnosis, it will help to have a framework for discussions about your job. Understand that your manager will probably be worried for you — and for the company. The best antidote is information, which is why we created this kit. It contains need-to-know laws relating to cancer in the workplace; successful workplace strategies; tips for dealing with your HR department; and more. We recommend detaching this page and sharing the rest of the kit with your manager. Additional resources for both you and your employer can be found at cancerandcareers.org

Workplace Wellness

Employers know that keeping employees healthy is good for both the employees themselves and for the productivity and profitability of the business. However, most employers do not know precisely how to create a healthy workplace or healthy workforce. This workplace health promotion guide for employers fills that need: using the latest scientific evidence combined with expert opinion from business leaders, this guide offers easy to use, real world recommendations on the design, implementation, and evaluation of workplace health promotion programs. Employers can use this guide to implement best and promising practices in their workplaces, thereby maximizing the impact of their program and the benefits to employees and business alike.
