Webinar Recording: Crucial Considerations for the Changing Workplace

Jennifer NelsonResources, Tools & Tactics Archives


There is no doubt that our workplace is in the midst of a permanent shift. Strategic employers are working to understand the shifts and get out ahead. New leave laws, COVID-19 ramifications, mental health, and family commitments have all impacted daily productivity within the workforce. These factors have led to a dramatic increase in the percentage of employees absent from work on any given day. Tracking, managing, and predicting absenteeism rates is now more important than ever as companies of all sizes rethink their workforce strategy.

This session explored how these evolving megatrends can affect actuarial tables and alter models used to predict absence, disability, and time off. We offered an understanding of the newest data points your organization needs to be tracking to understand and manage your productivity so you’ll leave armed with a better understanding of the future of the workforce.
