We’re excited to host a preconference workshop on the business impact of paid leave at the Disability Management Employer Coalition’s Annual Conference in Austin on Aug. 6.
There is currently no standard approach to calculating the business value, health impacts, or general return on investment of paid leave. And yet, we know a healthier workforce impacts measurable business areas such as employee performance, productivity, and company profitability. The Paid Leave Project spent the past year conducting research on the drivers, barriers, and emerging trends of voluntary adoption of paid leave by the largest corporations across the United States. Employers want more data to strengthen the business case for paid leave. It’s time we work together to transform workforce health from a line-item cost to a source of business value.
