DMEC and Aetna Team Up to Deliver Programs that Increase Workplace Productivity


Aetna (NYSE: AET), one of the nation’s leading providers of disability insurance and employee benefits, is now a Gold national sponsor of the Disability Management Employer Coalition (DMEC).

As one of DMEC’s Gold sponsors, Aetna will play a prominent role in the organization’s key programs, research and conferences, including its new FMLA/ADAAA Compliance Conference slated for the spring of 2012 in Minneapolis, MN, as well as its Annual International Conference to be held in August (Denver, CO).

One new program that the sponsorship will support is the release of DMEC’s Leave Management Survey results, which tracks employer methods, challenges and successes in leave administration, setting a baseline from which to assess future trends.

“Aetna is committed to meeting the needs of the people we serve and we are proud to support DMEC in their development of absence and disability solutions that enhance workforce productivity,” said Kate Begley, Head of Specialty Sales at Aetna. “Working with DMEC is another way that we can help our customers better manage their workforce and help members return to work faster.”

 “This is a great fit for us. Aetna has been a supporter of DMEC’s programs that improve workplace productivity for a number of years, and we are happy to have them at this new level of sponsorship,” said Charlie Fox, Esq, Executive Director of DMEC.  “We are very excited to have them join our impressive list of other national sponsors as we expand our services and support of the integrated absence management industry and profession.”
