Disability & Absence Management


Disability & Absence Management

Disabilities impact both employers and employees, at once affecting the individual’s income security and the organization’s productivity.

Your employees are your most valuable asset. Their ability to earn an income is one of their biggest assets. Vertus has an in-depth understanding of often complex Disability & Absence Management programs gained from working with major insurance and consulting companies. Employers need a benefits partner that can help unravel these complexities and offer innovative options to help meet business objectives and increase employee engagement.
