Morneau Shepell announces top U.S. insurance carrier partner for Abiliti™Absence

Innovative technology provides 24/7 real-time absence notifications to support early intervention, absence, leave and disability administration

SAN DIEGO, CA, July 31, 2017 /CNW/ - Morneau Shepell (TSX: MSI), a market leader in human resource technology and absence and disability services, today announced that a top U.S.-based insurance carrier has selected Morneau Shepell's Abiliti™Absence solution to integrate with its leave and disability products.

As the first solution in the United States to provide true 24/7 Day 1 reporting of personal paid or unpaid time off for all reasons, sick leave and vacations, using an automated workflow, the solution provides a simplified and easy way for employees and employers to remain connected during times of absence, with a focus on early intervention and return to work. Further, it enables employers to track declining balances in multiple banks of time, facilitating administration of paid family leave programs, among many others. This supports employers' needs to ensure workforce productivity requirements are met.

"By implementing the Abiliti™Absence Day 1 solution, employers now have the immediate awareness of employee absence, leave and disability, providing the instant tracking of trends in absenteeism from all causes, and associated workplace productivity impact," said Zahid Salman, Executive Vice President, Morneau Shepell. "We are proud to partner with a top U.S. insurance carrier to provide a solution that fits seamlessly with its existing offering."

Employees and employers can access the platform around the clock to notify and track absences from a mobile app, interactive voice response, call center or web portal.
