Communication Resources for Employees and Their Dependents

Employers can play a crucial role in supporting their employees and their dependents who are dealing with cancer by providing them with a range of programs and services and educating them about what they can do to reduce their risk of developing certain types of cancer.

The Business Group and the National Comprehensive Cancer Network® have developed a number of communication resources for employers to distribute to employees and their dependents. Employers can tailor the factsheets below to include details about their own benefits and programs.

The PDF version contains generic information that may be of interest to all employees. The Word document version allows employers to embed their own information (where indicated, in the highlighted areas) or copy and paste the content into their own health and wellness communications.

The Employer’s Companion Guide to the Cancer Benefits and Resource Guide

The Employer Companion Guide provides instructions on how to best use these tools within a given workforce. It also includes best practices in communicating cancer risk information. Case studies from innovators such as CBS Corporation, Pitney Bowes, Inc. and Delta Air Lines, Inc. illustrate how to implement best practices.
