It took a pandemic to make it happen, but U.S. employers are changing their approach to leave benefits to meet employees’ needs. As employers update or expand their leave benefits for this new future, what will leave management look like in a post-pandemic world? And what key considerations should employers keep in mind for the immediate future?
In this webinar, four thought leaders in employee benefits and leave management share their expertise, bringing four unique perspectives, including regulatory, market, employer and carrier views. The panel offers insights to overcoming regulatory and administration challenges while keeping employees healthy and productive.
