PIHRA Long Beach Luncheon

October 17, 2019

Session Time: 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Session Title: ROI Opportunities in Managing the Disabled Workforce  

Session Overview: 

Demonstrating  the Fiscal Impact of HR

HR touches every part of your organization, and yet, if being done right – we are invisible.  As a non-revenue generating part of an organization, HR is oftentimes misunderstood, under-resourced and at times wholly ignored.  Enter: an opportunity to demonstrate the fiscal importance of HR and specifically, a comprehensive disability compliance program.

As practitioners, we’ve witnessed a steady rise in leave usage, workers’ compensation injuries, requests for accommodations and mental health matters. As the requests increase, and the complexities skyrocket, 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 PHIRA help you fight for the resources and support you need to manage ADA, FEHA, FMLA, CFRA, and Workers’ Compensation complexities.

Bring Your Leadership

At this session we are asking you 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 organization support so you can get the permissions and/or financial resources needed to have a chance at doing this work the way your organization needs it done.

To take on this challenging and inspirational session, PHIRA Long Beach is bringing in Rachel Shaw, a nationally-known best-selling author and speaker in the area of disability compliance. During this lunch session she will not only discuss the real challenges and costs that employers face when we don’t have a comprehensive disability management program and provide, but will share solutions that will get results any manager or CEO can get behind. This is a session that begs for an audience that is larger than just your HR Talent. Get your leaders – by title or influence – to the lunch table, and let Rachel support your disability compliance to get to the next level!
