Millennials and Gen Z employees take a leave of absence more than any other demographics. And like anyone dealing with a leave, they’re bound to have a ton of anxious questions about the process—questions that can leave your HR team and company managers reeling almost as much as the employees are.

The good news? With more strategic and thoughtful leave-of-absence communications, you can help those employees avoid a ton of confusion and frustration—and make them appreciate you, their employer and your benefits package more.

In this program, benefits communication expert (and first-time parent fresh off of maternity leave) Alison Daigle will share seven proven communication tips to make your LOA process less confusing and more humane, as well as some best-practice insights she gleaned from her own recent leave experience. Specifically, you’ll learn how to:

  • Answer the three most important questions employees have about their leave
  • Position your company’s LOA policy as an essential, family-friendly benefit
  • Create the best end-to-end LOA communication plan you’ve ever had
  • Market your leave of absence communication resources to actually engage your employees—Gen Zers, Millennials, Gen Xers and Baby Boomers alike
