As a consequence of NRAS’ recommendations in the ‘Work Matters’ report, NRAS filmed two videos with employer organisations, the Confederation of British Industry and the Recruitment and Employment Confederation to discuss the crucial role employers play in providing better support for people with RA and other long term conditions (LTCs) in the workplace.

NRAS launched these videos at its ‘Time2Work’ event, which included a number of talks from expert speakers on topics about work and employment, including government schemes such as Access to Work, the support and advice available to people with disease from NRAS and other charities, and how employers can create an improved working environment to boost productivity and help their employees with RA and other long-term conditions manage their conditions better at work.
