The COVID-19 pandemic has been an exercise in agility, empathy, and innovation for employers across the globe. As we examine the changes of the past year — including economic uncertainty,  emergency legislation, business closures — and consider what is yet to come, it’s undeniable that the leave management industry as a whole has experienced tremendous upheaval.

DMEC partnered with FINEOS to explore what the COVID-and-beyond absence and disability management landscape looks like. The pandemic has caused many organizations to reconsider their  methods of operation to meet the changing needs of both employees and businesses alike. The questions in this survey explored current company-sponsored paid leave programs, statutory leave compliance, and accommodations. The results offer a glimpse into what employers are offering as we start to prepare for life beyond the coronavirus.
