The European Network for Workplace Health Promotion (ENWHP) has released its European Guide to Good Practice on chronically ill employees.
Chronic illness poses a major challenge for public health - it is the leading cause of mortality and morbidity in Europe, and has a major impact not only on the life expectancy but also in the years of good health lived. In addition, there is reasonable evidence that chronic disease affects earnings, the ability to work, job turnover and disability.
The just released ENWHP’s guide entitled “Promoting healthy work for workers with chronic illness” aims to advice employers and managers on how to support employees with chronic illness so that they can carry on with their professional lives in a way that protects their health.
This guide is built up on the below chapters:
The guide is available in several languages.
