Employee Productivity: Do Researchers Measure What Employers Care About?
IBI’s latest research finds that researchers miss opportunities to translate patients’ improved absences, job performance, work ability and quality of life into information that resonates with employers.
Closing the Gap: The Business Value of Preventive Screenings
To illustrate the potential productivity impact of preventive care, IBI conducted an analysis that identifies how often patients are missing their screenings and simulates the potential leave cost savings that results if the screening gaps were closed.
Our work emphasizes that healthy, productive employees promote healthy business.
