Absence and Disability Management Practices for an Aging Workforce

DMEC StaffResources, White Papers


The aging workforce is an area of mounting concern to employers, according to a recent collaborative study conducted by the Disability Management Employer Coalition (DMEC) and Cornell University’s Employment and Disability Institute (EDI) in the Industrial and Labor Relations (ILR) School. Absence and Disability Management Practices for an Aging Workforce is one of the few studies of its kind to examine the aging workforce from the perspective of disability management professionals.

“This unique study by DMEC and Cornell’s EDI highlights the gap between what employers know needs to be done to maximize the potential of an aging workforce, and those programs they actually have in place to do it,” said Terri L. Rhodes, Executive Director of DMEC. “A competitive advantage will accrue to those employers that invest in innovative absence and disability management programs and the personnel to plan and implement them.”
