Managing leave and absences is not what it was just a year ago. Once a simple matter of tracking vacation days and sick leave, leave and absence management is a growing concern for companies and their HR departments. Laws, regulations and employee needs are evolving, and market trends are changing amid the ongoing global health crisis. Today, managing absence is not just an administrative burden, but a competitive advantage and a strategic imperative.
In this webinar, leave experts Matthew Howes of Aon, and Unum’s Susan Stowell and Marci Cyr, share best practices for building an absence strategy for the future that meets the needs of a new generational blend in the workforce and for businesses to differentiate their offerings.
