ODEP and LEAD Center’s Latest Report Highlights Employee Retention and Return-to-Work Best Practices

December 1, 2014

As the workforce becomes increasingly diverse, companies are seeking additional strategies to maintain the health and productivity of their skilled workers, while also accommodating workers who may acquire disabilities. In fact, many companies have already created structures and practices that support employees with disabilities, illnesses and injuries so that they can successfully remain in their jobs.

In December 2014, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) and the LEAD Center released the report, “Best Practices in Employee Retention and Return-to-Work: An In-Depth Look Inside an Exemplary American Corporation.” Highlighting effective retention and return-to-work policies and practices gleaned from ODEP and LEAD’s professional analysis of a large corporation, the report offers suggestions and identifies replicable best practices that benefit both employers and employees.
