The latest issue of JointHealth™ insight explored arthritis in the workplace. The infographic below outlines what kind of flexible work arrangements would help workers with arthritis and why.
Besides providing the work accommodations above, employers can also foster a healthy lifestyle at work, including:
1)Signing up employees for a sports team, such as softball, basketball, or water polo.
2)Investing in sit-stand desks for the office, allowing employees to alternate between standing and sitting, which helps to prevent back and joint pain.
3)Having a multipurpose space at work for employees to participate in stretching, yoga, and walking exercises.
4)Giving an exercise stipend to employees to participate in physical activities outside of work.
