Webinar Recording: Results of the 10th Annual Leave Management Survey

Jennifer NelsonResources, Surveys, Tools & Tactics Archives


DMEC partnered with Spring Consulting for the 10th year in a row to conduct our Employer Leave Management Survey. We gathered information from employers around the nuances of leave management practices, and explored everything from what’s being outsourced, to the caseloads of managing internal and external staff, and the technology used. The 2020 survey took a deeper dive into leave plan design for short-term disability (STD), long-term disability (LTD), paid parental, paid family, sick, vacation, and PTO so employers can benchmark their programs against others of similar size and industry. The questions included details such as funding, waiting periods, elimination periods, benefit amounts, and benefit durations.

In this session, we broke down the findings of the 2020 survey, discussed the trajectory of ongoing trends, and examined the emergence of new observations.
