2018 Tools & Tactics Webinar: Your Communication Plan – How to Make Your Message Heard

DMECTools & Tactics, Webinars

Thursday, Sept. 27

9:00 am PT | 12:00 pm ET

Communication is critical, but does yours measure up? Benefits programs are becoming increasingly complex for professionals within the industry, and downright befuddling to employees trying to navigate their utilization. How are you getting employees the information they really need, when they need it, without overwhelming them?

Strong absence management programs have a communication plan for the full lifecycle of a leave event: before, during, and after. Join us as we explore the nuances of effective communication plans, and leave with an understanding of how to utilize these learnings in your own leave program.
