DISABILITY AND ABSENCE MANAGEMENT

We live and work in an era where many variables change on a constant basis. Fortunately the impact of unpredictable and often challenging circumstances can be greatly minimized by implementing an effective Integrated Disability and Absence Management (IDAM) program. When efficiently implemented, IDAM significantly increases an organization’s productivity, reduces costs, and minimizes risk.

CPDM was developed in partnership with the Disability Management Employee Coalition (DMEC).

 

Employee Disability and Leave Management is a complex arena for most organizations. Federal and state laws and programs can be convoluted, companies face unpredictable circumstances including exposure to expensive lawsuits, and audits for compliance that can cost fees and penalties. Can your organization afford to be behind the curve on this?

The CPDM curriculum, created by industry experts, is uniquely designed to provide the necessary knowledge and skills you need to manage the day-to-day challenges of health insurance, disability and absence management, and workers’ compensation. Armed with the best possible tools in the industry, you can confidently and expertly implement an effective and cost efficient IDAM program for your organization.

CPDM will help your organization reduce:

  • Replacement costs
  • Productivity costs
  • Compliance costs
  • Morale costs
