How AtlantiCare Controls Leave And Supports Employee Satisfaction: New Presagia Success Story

Posted by Rebecca Scott on Apr 15, 2021 2:20:50 PM

AtlantiCare is a regional health system with more than 6,000 employees and with over 100 locations that serves the healthcare needs of southeastern New Jersey.  Their core mission is to make a difference in health and healing one person at a time, while paving the way for excellence across the region.

Previously, AtlantiCare was outsourcing their leave management, however, this approach wasn't fully meeting their employees' needs, was costly, and required a lot of extra time and attention from their leave team. AtlantiCare experiences a high volume of leaves given the pressure placed on their healthcare workers, who have extremely long hours and physically demanding jobs that lead to injuries, stress and burnout. They needed a system that would  provide real-time access to leave information to support decision-making, allow them to be more hands-on and spend less time on menial tasks.

Lessons For Employers Around The COVID-19 Vaccine From The Jackson Lewis Webinar

Posted by Rebecca Scott on Mar 19, 2021 12:10:06 PM

A few weeks ago we attended an intriguing and relevant webinar from Jackson Lewis aptly named, To Vaccinate Or Not To Vaccinate...That Is The Question presented by Sheri Giger and David Mohl. This webinar answered questions that are on many employers' minds during this time, including whether they can mandate their employees getting the COVID-19 vaccine. 

We learned a lot from this webinar, including pros and cons of mandating vaccines and best practices (e.g. having a plan for possible non-compliance/non-cooperation). While there's a lot to digest, one important takeaway is that this is very much a grey area, given the ever-evolving landscape and continuous developments.

Presagia Webinar: Frisco ISD Boosts Leave Compliance And Efficiency Using Presagia

Posted by Rebecca Scott on Jan 12, 2021 9:05:13 AM

There's no doubt that leave management is taxing for employers, who must keep up-to-date with new and expiring leave laws, while balancing administrative overhead and the cost of absence. School districts especially face additional challenges, such as a dispersed workforce and complicated work schedules. 

That's why we wanted to share a recent webinar hosted by Financial Benefits Services (FBS), our parent company Presagia, and their mutual client, Frisco Independent School District (ISD). Geoff Simpson, Presagia's VP of Sales and Marketing and Brenna Rose, Benefits Manager at Frisco ISD were the presenters. In this webinar, Geoff gives a run-down on the importance of leave management and provides a demonstration of Presagia Leave. The second half involves Brenna who shares how Frisco ISD uses Presagia's system to manage leave more effectively and in turn, gives their employees the best experience. 

Federal, State And Local COVID-19 Leave Laws Expiring Soon

Posted by Rebecca Scott on Dec 22, 2020 4:01:00 PM

This year has left many in a disarray with COVID-19, which resulted in the enactment of many new federal, state and local leave laws. These leave laws were enacted at different points throughout 2020 with the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) arriving early on April 1, 2020, and others like the Long Beach, California Supplemental Paid Sick Leave Ordinance coming later (May 19, 2020). Most of these laws were enacted with an expiration date, which means as leave managers, you need to be kept up-to-date in the coming months. 

Given that this is such a busy time of the year, we wanted to help you stay informed on when these COVID-19-related leave laws are expected to end. Please note that the majority of these leaves have an end date of December 31, 2020, but with the pandemic still blazing across the county they could be extended.
