In 2013, IBI established a partner non-profit organization, the Center for Workforce Health and Performance (CWHP). The CWHP’s first report, Musculoskeletal Disorders, Workforce Health and Productivity in the United States, underscores that employers have many opportunities to help employees with musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) stay at work and return to work from disability leaves. Efforts to facilitate recovery and preserve workplace productivity will be most effective when they take into account factors such as pain management, mental health comorbidities and the workplace and home environments.
