According to a recent study, 44% of employees who worked with their HR department and received communications from their employer returned to work more quickly and 93% of employees who received support said they could do their jobs more effectively.
This case study will examine how Terracon, a leading provider of engineering solutions across the US with over 4000 employees, improved employee satisfaction and reduced absence and lost productivity. In addition, they’ll share how their disability program is enabling increased integration between their leave management, safety and well-being initiatives. They found that their disability durations and absence results, particularly due to preventable musculoskeletal health issues, were rapidly growing longer than benchmarks. To address this issue they focused on aligning their disability management benefits strategy with their Incident and Injury Free mission, to have each employee return home safely to their family every day.
Presenters will share how the partnership has benefited Terracon, from the HR team to managers and front-line employees. They’ll describe how the current program drives value for employees with dedicated support though early identification and intervention, customized accommodations solutions and improved outreach and communications. The presentation will use IBI benchmarking data to demonstrate current STD and disability durations and how these results can be applicable to other environments besides engineering.
