Webinar Recording: Best Practices in Creating a Successful Disability Experience

DMECResources, Tools & Tactics Archives

Employers are the foundation in building a successful disability experience. However, when each situation is unique, how do you balance the necessity of consistent policies and procedures with the individual needs of your employee?

This webinar covered how to build a culture that encourages best practices, and prioritizes the individual’s goals, and offered a view into how employers can proactively work with their disability team before, during, and after a claim. The panel discussed how to identify opportunities, craft policies, and balance key stakeholder’s needs, while specifically discussing the different approaches to use in regard to physical limitations and mental illness issues.
