Leave of Absence Tool

CLIENT

Summary

As LOA policies become increasingly complex, a tool that personalizes information for employees can significantly increase understanding and save HR and managers time and reduce errors when answering in-depth questions.

Challenge

  • Simplify complicated Leave of Absence (LOA) information and provide easy access to important details 24/7
  • Provide instructions on how to initiate a leave of absence

Solutions

  • A customized, interactive LOA tool
    • Employees answer a few short questions to receive a customized LOA summary
    • Shows only information relevant to the user based on type of leave, employee status, location and tenure
    • Lives on benefits website accessible 24/7 from any device or location

Results

  • Saved managers time because they directed employees to the tool rather than answering complicated questions
  • Increased employee satisfaction by providing personalized clarification
  • Provided a common starting point for REI’s Employee Service Center (ESC) to use when speaking with employees
