Manage the Disabled Workforce and
Demonstrate the Fiscal Importance of HR

presented by Rachel Shaw


Demonstrating the Fiscal Impact of HR

HR touches every part of your organization, and yet, can often be invisible. As a non-revenue generating part of an organization, HR is oftentimes misunderstood, under-resourced and at times, wholly ignored. This is an opportunity to demonstrate the fiscal importance of HR and specifically, a comprehensive disability compliance program.

With a steady rise in leave usage, workers’ compensation injuries, requests for accommodations and mental health matters, the complexities skyrocket and many organizations maintain the same staffing levels for their HR teams. Why? For some, there lacks organizational awareness of the work that has to be done to comply with laws. For others, there is a deficit in understanding what is possible when these issues are expertly managed with sufficient staff. We aim to help with both, but believe the latter will resonate well with organizational leadership.

When an organization understands at the highest levels the tangible ROI when it tackles disability and leave matters efficiently and effectively, they are bound to be impressed. Compliance doesn’t always get executives excited about supporting our important work, but saving money and improving worker productivity – that is often a different story. Let us help you fight for the resources and support your need to manage ADA, FEHA, FMLA, CFRA, and Workers’ Compensation complexities. 


Learning Goals for this Session

During this session you will learn about:

  • The real challenges and costs that employers face when they don’t have a comprehensive disability management program,
  • How to manage the requirements of ADA, FEHA, FMLA, CFRA, and Workers’ Compensation complexities.
  • Solutions that will get results any manager or CEO can get behind.


Bring Your Leadership

This is a session that begs for an audience that is larger than just your HR Talent. We are asking you to bring with you a member or two from your leadership group, or a key operational supervisor or manager that needs to understand why this work is so important and why managing it makes business sense. Help us help you build the organizational support that you need to have a chance at doing this work the way your organization needs it done. It is a great opportunity to engage with Rachel Shaw, a nationally-known best-selling author and speaker in the area of disability compliance. Get your leaders – by title or influence – to the lunch table, and let Rachel support your disability compliance to get to the next level!

All those who register will receive a pre-event survey so that Rachel can address your current pain points and support you in your HR work. We will be soliciting your input for this session.
