CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jellyvision, maker of employee communications platform, ALEX®, announced today that its new ALEX: Leave of Absence product will be making sure that the leave of absence communication process won’t be giving anybody—neither HR professionals nor employees—any more sass.
“Leaves of absence are sensitive, complicated topics,” said Amanda Lannert, CEO of Jellyvision. “Talking about them is hard on employees and HR alike. ALEX: Leave of Absence helps smooth out those conversations by providing personalized, confidential guidance to stressed employees facing leave decisions for family or medical reasons.”
Built with the same engaging and interactive technology that provides 14 million employees with personalized benefits education and decision support, ALEX: Leave of Absence shepherds employees through the leave of absence application process and issues along the way. This leads to easier, more successful applications, and ensures that employees feel supported before, during and after their leave.
“ALEX: Leave of Absence makes sure employees feel taken care of,” said Jellyvision product manager Alison Daigle. “It helps people see the leave of absence process as helpful and compassionate instead of annoying and cold.”
ALEX: Leave of Absence also helps employers by reducing the amount of time front-line managers and HR team members spend fielding various leave questions. By empowering employees to take ownership of their leave time, ALEX: Leave of Absence effectively decreases the impact leave of absence inquiries can have on productivity and improves a company’s bottom line.
“We’re helping HR, because even though leave of absence questions are often the same, every employee's situation is unique," added Lannert. "Using ALEX: Leave of Absence ensures that everybody gets accurate information and helpful guidance so they can feel supported and happy to return to work when their leave is done."
