Webinar Recording: Quantify This – A Guide to Benchmarking Best Practices

Jai HookerResources, Tools & Tactics Archives


How does your lost time experience compare to your competition? Is your workplace safer? Are your employees more likely to go out on short-term disability (STD) or long-term disability (LTD)? What about your family and medical leave (FML) experience? Benchmarking helps organizations of different sizes and industries answer these questions and provide insight on how to improve lost time and workplace productivity results. In a tight economy, making the business case for improvement can be crucial to overall success.

In this webinar, we started with the basics of benchmarking and walked through case studies around important and nuanced details — like internal versus external benchmarking, benchmarking sources (including what DMEC can offer), integrated or program-by-program benchmarking, direct versus hidden costs, and the best metrics to compare. Attendees left with not only a grasp of how to garner pertinent benchmarking data at their organization, but also what to do with those insights in order to make positive program improvements.
