Jennifer NelsonSurveys, White Papers

Organizations have experienced extraordinary business shifts during the pandemic, with absence management practices being significantly impacted. As we evaluate the new terrain of leave management, it’s pertinent to consider all stages of the industry’s evolution over the past 16 months and how they will shape our future trajectory.

DMEC partnered with Broadspire to explore how organizations’ absence management programs looked before and during the COVID-19 pandemic, and what they will look like as we come into the post-pandemic landscape. These survey results provide the framework for understanding what areas of absence management are most significantly impacted by the pandemic, how employers have responded to the business upsets, and how organizations are strategically adjusting their programs for a stronger future.
