Every business understands that employee absences cost money. Fortunately, expert absence management can cut those costs substantially. The right absence management solution fully coordinates benefits, monitors and motivates your employees and their physicians, and works with managers within your company to speed return to work.
Effective absence management requires skill sets that most companies simply don't have in-house. That's why so many leading-edge companies choose to outsource this vital business process to an integrated employee benefit company whose core competencies are disability insurance, workers' compensation insurance, and comprehensive absence management.
When you outsource your absence management you benefit from the time and cost savings generated by relying on a single, fully integrated source. You simply get more, at less cost, than from companies with less experience and less comprehensive programs.
Reliance Standard Life Insurance Company underwrites short-term and long-term disability coverage. Safety National Casualty Corporation provides primary and excess workers' compensation. And Matrix Absence Management integrates coverage with federal and state laws and your own company policies in each state in which you do business. Most critically, Matrix provides RN case management to ensure your employees return to work as quickly as possible.
Based on our experience managing absences for more than 150,000 lives, we have a core understanding of, and competency managing, leaves compliant with the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), which allows employees up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave during a calendar year for their own or a family member's serious health condition. An estimated 18% of employees will file an FMLA claim with an average duration of six weeks each year. And the landscape is changing—not improving—constantly. Employers of all sizes can benefit from the expertise of an industry leader in leave management.
