Taxonomy term

Over half of HR professionals are unsure how much employee absence costs their organization. This unsettling statistic was revealed in our survey conducted in June at the 2012 SHRM Annual Conference & Exposition in Atlanta.

Let’s think about that. Half of these professionals aren’t sure of the costs, so therefore, executives don’t know when money is literally walking out the door. Plus, the price tag on this problem is $100 billion.

Over the past two weeks, OCI has attended IHRIM’s HRMS Strategies Conference, the Louisiana State SHRM Conference and DMEC’s FMLA/ADAAA Employer Compliance Conference. Now we’re getting ready to exhibit at the Gulf Coast Symposium this week. At each conference, we’re seeing recurring trends and business needs.

Recently, the state of Tennessee amended TCA, Title 8, Chapter 33, Part 1 regarding employees in military service. This may mean absolutely nothing to you. But, if you have employees in the state of Tennessee, you need to know what the amendment was and how it affects your employees’ leave eligibility.

Recently, we discussed how a good leave management system can help you put together the pieces of managing absence to view a clear picture of your company’s leave landscape.

There are some leave systems out there that can provide you with the tools necessary to track FMLA and direct some of the day-to-day activities of managing leave. But most are missing a key piece of the leave management puzzle: data integration.

At the annual SHRM conference in Atlanta, GA, OCI hosted our first-ever survey focusing on leave management. We set out to understand some of the issues facing employers with regard to absence, how important technology is to our human resources clients, and gain some insights into the issues on the mind of leave specialists.

At the recent DMEC conference, we had the opportunity to talk with a lot of people we’ve met ‘virtually’ but never before in person. It was exciting to put a face to the Twitter handle and make off-line connections.

However, in one conversation, we met someone who we hadn’t met online. As we spoke, she shared that Twitter and other social media tools intimidated her but that she wanted to start using them.

Managing absence effectively has become an HR professional’s top concern. With ever-changing leave laws, multiple employee leave types andskyrocketing costs, all while trying to offer competitive benefits to employees, HR has a lot of pieces of a difficult puzzle to manage.

OCI has an exciting fall ahead of us with a lot of HR events on our calendar. We'll be traveling to several states to discuss leave management, FMLA tracking, RTW practices, and absence reporting with HR professionals across the U.S.!
