The author reflects on the reluctance to face the issue of cancer in the workplace. He says cancer has remained a taboo subject in the workplace, despite the fact that earlier intervention and more effective treatment means that more and more people are working through cancer and it is no longer necessarily a career-ending event. He argues that the reluctance to face the issue does a disservice to the managers and colleagues who ought to be equipped with the tools to help them continue to contribute their talent to their organisations.
