Having worked with over 20% of the Fortune 500, we understand that one size does not fit all when it comes to absence and leave management.


Employers are aware of the complexity of managing leaves, including paid family leave, FMLA, sick leave and more. More and more employers are implementing comprehensive leave management policies, while also recognizing that a leave of absence means less productivity. Add to this the complexities of complying with regularly changing federal and state family medical leave requirements, leave policies and absenteeism can have profound effects on a company’s costs and employee morale.

As an experienced absence and leave management consultant, Pacific Resources helps many of the world’s largest employers identify and quantify exactly why and where employee absenteeism is occurring, and what types of leave policies might work best for each employer. Then, we work with carriers to deliver solutions that allow employers to implement the right leave policies for employees, lower the risks associated with absenteeism and mitigate the impact of absenteeism to the company’s financial performance.

We provide expert advice, implementation assistance and ongoing services for integrated absence, leave and lost time solutions to help you manage your employees and your bottom line.
