Top Takeaways From Ultimate Software's HR Workshop For Leave Managers

Posted by Rebecca Scott on Dec 5, 2019 10:30:00 AM

Our parent company, Presagia, recently attended a human resources workshop by their partner, Ultimate Software. The talks featured at this workshop were stimulating, encouraging and educational, which is why we want to share them with you! 

There was a lot of useful information, everything from how the workplace is changing to boosting company morale! We thought that this information, including how employee disengagement leads to absenteeism, would be crucial for leave managers to know, as absenteeism impacts all areas of an organization, from decreased resources to lost revenue. 

To help establish a workplace that is more positive, with reduced absenteeism, we're sharing the top lessons that leave managers need to be aware of.
