  • The majority of employers find their RTW programs highly effective overall.

An aging workforce

By 2020, it's estimated that 25% of workers will be 55 years old or older, up from just 12% in 1990.2 As employee populations age, the number of disabled workers will also likely increase, making leave and accommodation management an even greater concern for employers.3

Millennials are coming

Adults ages 18-34 are not shy about requesting work-related accommodations. One in four (24%) have made an accommodations request due to a health condition, more than Generation Xers (13%) and Baby Boomers (14%).4

Regulatory updates expand the need

Federal regulation dictates that “disability” now potentially encompasses a much wider field of employees, so the demand for accommodations will likely rise.
