Cannabis in the workplace and its impact on your employee benefits design and total health management strategy
Calendar16 August 2018

How will recreational and medical cannabis impact your employee benefits design and total health management?

Cannabis in the workplace will impact your employee benefits design and total health management strategy and overall employee value proposition. According to our national survey, 2 in 3 employers do not offer cannabis coverage as part of their employee health benefits, and 74% of employees have taken notice.

Everyone from HR professionals to the C-suite are feeling the pressure to address medical and recreational cannabis in the workplace. The implications of cannabis consumption must be thought through carefully across the entire organizations operations, including updating code of conduct policies, revising employee benefit plans, and effectively communicating these changes to employees.
