(Entrance to Crystal G2)
The COVID-19 pandemic and its associated economic conditions have created an environment of labor shortages and mass resignations across industries. Employers in many blue-collar sectors, where employees were already in short supply before the pandemic, have experienced the greatest labor pinch. When employees are in short supply, lost workdays and return to work programs take on increased importance. Dr. John Anderson, Chief Medical Officer at Concentra, explains the foundation of the labor shortage and how occupational health providers can provide the guidance and treatment needed to accelerate the return to work process.
