The City and County of Denver has over 14,000 employees across 40 different departments and agencies ranging from fire and police, community planning and development, transportation and infrastructure, plus many more. Due to the multitude of services provided — and the variety of skillsets required to staff these services — the employee mix of this regional government entity is incredibly diverse.
With employees working remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic, the City and County of Denver wanted to offer support while demonstrating genuine care and concern for their workers’ health and success.
By implementing and growing their disability management program, they hoped to prevent future leaves by helping employees stay at work or return to work sooner when needing support for a physical or behavioral health condition.
Extra Level of Compassion and Support
The City and County of Denver partnered with Workplace Possibilities℠ to provide customized solutions to help employees stay at work or return sooner.
Stay at Work Focus
The Standard’s Workplace Possibilities1 program has onsite consultants who coached managers on how to spot employees needing support and referred them to our program. This focus on early intervention helped keep employees on the job with a full paycheck.
Treating the Whole Person
We looked at the range of factors that could delay an employee’s recovery from a physical — or behavioral — condition. Then we tailored a plan that helped the individual return to work quickly and safely.
Bringing Expertise to Employers
Our consultants integrated into the City and County of Denver’s culture and made a personal connection with employees. They helped ease the burden on HR by working directly with employees, coordinating available benefits.
