The Business Impact of Paid Leave: An Interactive Workshop

We’re excited to host a preconference workshop on the business impact of paid leave at the Disability Management Employer Coalition’s Annual Conference in Austin on Aug. 6.

There is currently no standard approach to calculating the business value, health impacts, or general return on investment of paid leave. And yet, we know a healthier workforce impacts measurable business areas such as employee performance, productivity, and company profitability. The Paid Leave Project spent the past year conducting research on the drivers, barriers, and emerging trends of voluntary adoption of paid leave by the largest corporations across the United States. Employers want more data to strengthen the business case for paid leave. It’s time we work together to transform workforce health from a line-item cost to a source of business value.

Thank you to our partners at Limeade, LeaveLogic, and HCMI for joining us as we explore this topic and potential tactics to measure the business impact of paid leave.

How Venture Investment and Start-Ups can Shape the Future of Work

How Venture Investment and Start-Ups can Shape the Future of Work

Seattle has long inspired entrepreneurs and investors who set out to change the city, the country, and even the world. While our companies are leading on innovation, we are not leading on leave.

Despite our progressive policies, women in Washington are still leaving the workforce following childbirth. Men and women both often find themselves stuck as eldercare responsibilities arise, and people of color are experiencing some of the largest wealth and opportunity divides in the region.

Please join Panorama and Founders Live for a roundtable discussion with local venture capitalists, including Dave Parker with Seven Peaks Ventures, Sarah Bird, CEO of Moz, Jana Kleitsch, CEO of Wanderlust Society, and start-up leaders around how we can work together to address these gaps, and ensure that Washington-based companies create an environment where all workers thrive. The Washington Employment Security Department, administrators of Washington's upcoming Paid Family and Medical Leave Program, will also be available for questions.
