Engaging employees at the right time with the right resources for better outcomes

Your clients’ success depends on an able-bodied workforce. After all, when employees are healthy, it helps them be more productive. One of the best ways to reduce disability-related absences is to prevent disabling illnesses and injuries from happening. Our disability program focuses on prevention. But if a disability occurs, we quickly deploy our expert resources that work together to get customers back on their feet and on the job faster.

Our disability programs are designed to maximize performance and profitability for your clients, while providing immediate value for their employees.

Our disability services and programs include:

  • Stay-healthy-at-work and return-to-work programs designed to help employees either reduce their risk of a disability, or return to work quickly and safely
  • Individualized Healthy Working Life® plans designed to help employees overcome barriers in performing their jobs and reduce the risk of a disabling event
  • Anytime support with easy-to-use programs and services, including online resources and value-added programs and services for employees and their families to use immediately
