The Hartford Launches Integrated Leave Management Solution

April 27, 2010 ( - To help employers more effectively manage their employees’ absences, The Hartford has launched a single-company solution to track and manage both occupational and non-occupational leave.

The Hartford Productivity Advantage integrates the insurer’s short- and long-term group disability and workers’ compensation insurance with its leave management administration services to help employers minimize lost time while maintaining productivity, according to a press release. Workers’ compensation, disability insurance, and leave management can be selected and integrated based on each employer’s objectives and timelines.

The Hartford’s analytic reporting gives employers a consolidated view of employee absences encompassing disability, workers’ compensation, family and medical leave. Workers have a single point of contact to report and discuss their time out of work, and if they experience a disability on or off the job, they will receive support from experienced medical professionals.

The Hartford also launched its Productivity Lab, a new Web resource to help companies build their productivity IQ. In addition, the company is offering employers the opportunity to have a customized absence analysis that shows how absence can impact their organization’s productivity. More information is at

The Hartford recently announced it enhanced its leave management capabilities with streamlined reporting and tracking, self-service capabilities, and flexible communication tools for employers with 500 or more workers (see Hartford Beefs up Leave Management Product).
