The Fraser Health Authority (FHA) is Canada’s largest regional health authority. This session will focus on FHA’s journey in transforming their Absence and Disability Management Program from a “traditional HR style” attendance management program into an integrated workplace health approach designed from an employee experience perspective. Every day at FHA, approximately 2,000 valuable employees are absent from work due to paid and unpaid sick leave, WC or LTD. Many of these absence episodes are associated with preventable health conditions. FHA has established a Total Absence and Disability Management program that addresses opportunities to reduce sick leave by adopting a more health-focused model. The revised program includes links to comprehensive employee well-being, including wellness, prevention and health management services, and provides managers and employees with more comprehensive feedback, analysis and trending. Learn how their focus on people, process and technology reduced absenteeism costs by 10% after the first 6 months of program launch. After completing this session, participants will be able to: (1) Gain an understanding of the relationship between physical activity and health in healthcare workers; (2) Describe psychographics and its relationship in supporting targeted communications and learnings around improving the adoption of lifestyle changes and reduced physical health risk; and (3) Analyze the outcomes of the study as they relate to those receiving messaging via psychographics and those not receiving it in terms of risk pre-post a physical activity step challenge.
