Disability and Leave Management

Large employers face a tricky balance: they need to protect disabled employees and at the same time protect themselves by maintaining workforce productivity and overall profitability. 

This balance is complicated by the many other challenges you face: implementing benefits cost savings, integrating with other health and productivity initiatives, ensuring compliance, and maintaining controls on staffing levels.

  • Risk management
  • Claim and leave administration and technology
  • Claim audits
  • Return to work advisory services
  • Legal and regulatory support
  • Tracking, reporting and communications tools
  • Process improvement
  • Financial analysis
