Workforce Absence Management

*Absence management is critical to employers.

Employees need to be away from work for a variety of reasons including their own health, care of their family, personal time and vacation. As an employer, you provide a myriad of programs that can be used:

Short and Long Term Disability
FMLA / State Leave of Absence
State / Local Paid Leave Requirements
Workers’ Compensation
Paid Time Off
Other Company Leaves
These are offered by companies to meet regulatory requirements and to be competitive. Return to work approaches usually differ, and employers are equally challenged with ADAAA / accommodations and consistent return to work practices.

Whether you have 10 or 10,000 employees, the complex world of absence management impacts every business. We can help you navigate through these intricate issues.

*Three key questions you should be asking yourself:

Are my current programs encouraging employees to be away from work?
Make sure your absence programs are efficient and compliant. We can help you define the cost of absence to your organization, fix gaps in your absence programs, and audit your vendor partners.

Do my managers/supervisors know what to do if one of their employees need to be away from work?
Help your managers and supervisors do the right thing at the right time. We can work with you to you develop and deliver training, as well as refine existing resources (or create new ones) for your management team.

Are my employees returning to work?
Improve compliance and enable your employees to be most productive. We can help identify gaps in your current return to work process, align your return to work process with ADA, and measure the positive impact of employees return from leave.
