Jai HookerResources, Tools & Tactics Archives

As leave management grows in complexity, so do the questions plaguing absence and disability professionals. If you’ve ever wondered about the leave benefits offered by others in your industry, or sought a benchmark for your leave management processes, this is a session you won’t want to miss!

In this session, we explored the insights from the 12th DMEC Employer Leave Management Survey, conducted in collaboration with Spring Consulting Group. This session also delved into the complexities of leave management practices, covering aspects from outsourcing practices to the management of internal and external staff caseloads, and the utilization of technology. The 2023 survey extensively examines the design of processes to support organizations’ absence programs. We provided a detailed breakdown of management methods for regulatory and nonregulatory leaves, accommodations, and return to work based on factors such as employer size, industry, method of administration, and more.

This session not only dissected the 2023 survey findings, but also explored the ongoing trends and emerging observations in the absence and disability management industry. Attendees gained valuable tools and takeaways to navigate both existing and upcoming challenges in this ever-evolving landscape.
