The facts are indisputable. Disability is steadily rising in the American workforce. This reduces worker productivity and damages your business. It also threatens the financial lives and future security of your employees and their families.

What can you do? Like you, many employers are looking for ways to help their employees deal with this threat. Many are introducing wellness programs to help lessen the likelihood of a worker becoming disabled. Some employers are also giving employees the resources and information to help them prepare for the possibility, and deal with the financial hardship it can cause.

Remember: By helping your employees lead healthier lives and prepare for the unthinkable — a loss of income due to a disability — your organization benefits too.
