  • New York Webinar

    March 13 – Absence Management & Return to Work Programs in Corporate Settings, Presented by Angela Eskandar MS, CRC
    This presentation will look at employee absence from an employer’s perspective. We will discuss some common challenges that employers face in managing time off programs, sick leave laws, state and federal leaves, disability, and lost time associated with a Workers’ Compensation injury. There will be a focus on the valuable insight that a VRC can bring to organizations to establish and manage programs to assist employees in staying at work or returning to work at the right time. The presentation will highlight the important role that data analysis and trending reports have on uncovering the key absence drivers in an organization.
  • CEU Credits available tomorrow!
