Innovating Through Technology
As we celebrate our 150th Anniversary, Canadians are heading into a future that will be transformed by technology. Already, our workplaces and the health of our employees reflect the great advances of the past century and a half. As we enter a new era, change will come more rapidly. We will be challenged to build and realize new visions in almost every area of endeavor – from how we do business to how we care for our health.
- Our Editorial urges a holistic approach to benefits in an age of rapid innovation.
- We learn successful companies adopt the right technologies at the right time and discover the importance of labs for incubating new ideas.
- We find out how new technologies transform the management of diseases like diabetes, preventing complications and improving health and productivity.
Technology and Benefits
The coming changes will require us to cast fresh eyes on workplace benefits and create a new vision in response to innovations and future circumstances – new specialty medications that lead to debates over cost containment and long term value, new ways of organizing work in a gig economy, and new ways of defining tasks and healthcare needs in an era of robotics and an aging workforce. bh
