Employee absences can be planned, happy experiences or unfortunate and challenging for employees and employer alike. They can also be challenging and costly to manage, especially if they lead to lower workplace productivity and require extra effort from co-workers. An efficient, compliant, and managed leave and disability program can improve employee engagement, retention, and wellbeing, contributing to improved business results.
Our speakers will highlight ways your organization can set your program up for success and help employees return to work sooner. Key topics will include:
The importance of caring for employees before, during, and after their leave or disability-related absence
What a well-designed absence program looks like
Why you should perform program due diligence
How to structure a program audit to minimize risk
Ways to enhance engagement and satisfaction, compliance, and business results
