The complexity of disability and attendance management can sometimes be overwhelming. We know that disability and attendance management is more than just tracking absence or getting employees back to work – it’s about keeping employees healthy, and returning them to productive, sustainable work and life.
We also understand that the costs – both financial and human – of managing absence and disability are on the rise. The direct and indirect costs of absenteeism – whether the result of disability or unmanaged attendance – include missed targets, loss of productivity, low employee and manager morale and low employee/manager engagement.

When an employee is absent from the workplace due to illness/injury, he is often confused as to what to do next and what supports are available to remove medical and non-medical barriers.
For every employee who is absent from the workplace, there often is a manager who is wondering how to manage staff morale and meet the monthly productivity expectations.
For every employee absent from the workplace, there often is a co-worker who has had to manage the workload of the absent employee on top of his own heavy load and wonders exactly what is going on with the absent employee.
