A majority of employers have already begun their journey toward more effectively tracking and managing employee leaves, including FMLA. Yet, according to Guardian’s most recent Absence Management Activity and Index study, most employers are still very early-on in their efforts and are not yet achieving the desired outcomes from their programs (i. e., reducing liability exposure, increasing productivity and improving absenteeism. This is particularly true for employers with fewer than 500 employees, who are more likely to be in-sourcing their leave management – and more likely to say they need help keeping up with evolving state policies, intermittent FMLA leaves, ADA and ADAAA regulations, etc.

In this webinar, hear from a health services company that grew to over 1,000 employees with more than 150 locations following several recent mergers. The benefits manager responsible for leading the company’s outsourcing efforts will relay her priorities and experiences in moving the company from a manual, decentralized, in-house process to an outsourced model. Also a Guardian Life practice leader will share decision criteria when considering outsourcing, selecting the right external partner, and keys to a successful implementation.

Join us for a virtual encore of this popular workshop from the 2016 IBI Annual Forum.
