"Good work, which is work that is fulfilling, promotes health and is productive, is an essential part of our life. Along with volunteering, hobbies, friends, faith, and family, good work gives us a sense of purpose. Working with pain can be a challenge and has a high impact on productivity at the workplace both in terms of absenteeism (lost workdays) and presenteeism (reduced performance while at work)."
