Hartford Beefs up Leave Management Product

April 12, 2010 (PLANSPONSOR.com) – The Hartford Financial Services Group has enhanced its leave management capabilities with streamlined reporting and tracking.

A Hartford news release said the offering also now includes self-service capabilities and flexible communication tools for employers with 500 or more workers.

“Today employers aren’t necessarily aware of where they are losing productivity within their complex organizations,” said Ron Gendreau executive vice president of The Hartford’s Group Benefits Division, in the news release. “It’s a real challenge when they have a workforce in several locations and multiple lines of business.”

According to the announcement, the offering now includes secure submission of leave requests and reports on the status of leaves. Also, the new leave management capabilities include flexible communications tools that help employers better connect with their workers on scheduled time away from the office.

“Employers are struggling with tracking leaves, determining whether a condition qualifies as a serious health condition, and understanding new and existing regulations. We understand that strain combined with lost productivity can be taxing on a company’s bottom line,” said Gendreau, “We have invested in people and capabilities that remove that burden from employers, allowing them to focus on growing their business.”
