Workplace Possibilities Program

Where Others See Disabilities, We See Possibilities

Imagine the possibilities of a simple pair of foot pedals to promote healthy circulation. Or picture a motorized lift platform — even a riding vacuum cleaner. We're committed to going above and beyond to empower people to work.

Our Workplace PossibilitiesSM program is changing the way employers manage absence and disability. This unique, proactive approach helps keep employees at work by addressing and reducing the causes of disability.

The goal is a more productive workplace. And it takes a big burden off the HR team.

On-Site Workplace Possibilities Consultant

Only The Standard provides employers with an on-site disability consultant as part of the group disability plan.1 All the employer needs to supply is a workspace with an Internet connection. Services include:

  • Performing ergonomic evaluations
  • Recommending devices that adapt to employees' needs
  • Consulting on accommodations for mental health conditions
  • Training supervisors to facilitate employees staying on the job or returning to work after a disability
  • Identifying light-duty jobs that employees can do while they recover

Reasonable Accommodation Expense Benefit

We're committed to helping people lead productive lives. We will cover an employer's approved expenses, up to $25,000, toward worksite modifications that result in a disabled employee staying at work or returning to work after a disability.

See How It Works

By identifying opportunities to keep employees who may be at risk of disability on the job and get those who go out on disability back to work sooner, our Workplace Possibilities experts can help employers realize rapid and measurable reductions in disability-related costs.

Will Peterson, AVP, Human Resources at Phoebe Putney Health System, Inc.

The willingness of a carrier to stand up and say, ‘we may be in the business of disability and life, but we're willing to bring you a program that’s going to identify a person further upstream and prevent them from ever becoming a disability claim or a life claim.’ That's a unique aspect about The Standard that I've always had such an appreciation for.
