Framing the cost of chronic health conditions in the workplace

October 20, 2020

Health Solutions by Shoppers, in partnership with The Conference Board of Canada, have developed a free on-line tool for framing the cost of common chronic conditions in the workplace. Dr. Bill Howatt, co-creator for this calculator, will instruct how HR, benefits, and wellness leaders can use this tool to frame a conversation around the cost of doing nothing about chronic disease conditions in the workplace.


  • Review of how the calculator works
  • Overview of the research that went into building the calculations
  • Discussion around how to use the calculator to engage leaders to take action
