Program length: 60 minutes

Workers between ages 18 and 34 leave work to have a child or to care for a sick parent more than any other demographic. And like other employees who find themselves about to take a leave from work, Millennials will have questions about the process — questions that can take a toll on your HR team and company managers, especially if you work at a large company.

The good news? A smart leave-of-absence communication strategy can help your employees navigate the process from start to finish -- and make them appreciate you, their employer, for having their back.

In this program, Bob Armour from Jellyvision will share seven simple communication tips you can implement today to make the whole process more transparent and less stressful for everyone involved. Specifically, you’ll learn how to:

  • Answer the three most important questions employees have when they need to take a leave.
  • Position your company’s leave of absence policy as an essential, family-friendly benefit.
  • Create an end-to-end communication plan for your company’s leave of absence policy.
  • Market your leave of absence communication resources to actually engage your employees – Millennials, Generation Xers and Baby Boomers alike.
