Leave Optimization Forum

Mission & Objectives
The Business Group’s Leave Optimization Forum addresses shared challenges and opportunities for leave policies and their intersection with health, well-being and productivity. Paid leave is critical to maximize organizational performance and support the diverse needs of a modern workforce. At the same time, employers and employees face challenges navigating and managing the leave experience, compounded for employers by the rising cost of managing time away and the accelerating regulatory and compliance burden.
The Forum convenes employers, partners and subject matter experts to:
  • Develop a shared understanding of “what’s working and not working” today for employers taking a holistic view of leave through the identification of best practices and common challenges, frustrations and gaps in solutions; and
  • Form consensus about how to address these gaps, set priorities and seek solutions in the product/service market as well as in the policy arena.
