Like vegetables in a garden, growing an organization’s revenue takes care, attention to detail, and the right amount of nourishment of the soil for strong, healthy roots. People Teams can contribute directly toward yielding larger profits by providing care, attention to detail and nourishing all of the people who are keeping the lights on in the greenhouse.
Your employees are your roots, so when they’re exposed to the harsh realities life may throw their way outside of work, invest in ensuring they’re being properly taken care of and keep those roots strong, and your organization’s harvest bountiful.
Shaky-at-best garden analogies aside, investing in a modern leave of absence (LOA) management solution can be a big win for People Teams looking to support their employees when they need it most while ramping up revenue in a major way.
Here are a few ways you can make your People Team shine on your org’s bottom line Tilt:
Automated pay adjustments: Manually calculating payroll is not only an administrative nightmare, you also run the risk of overpaying employees and potentially not even knowing it. An employee’s leave of absence date range might change, maybe they got a company-wide raise in the middle of their leave and it needs to be reflected in their reimbursement, or the most common pitfall, human error. With Tilt’s automated pay adjustments, you can rest assured knowing that you’re saving your organization from overpaying employees out of the profit till.
Capitalizing on state benefits: Applying for state benefits can be cumbersome, confusing and a nightmare to monitor and track. Some employers agree to just pay 100% of an employee’s salary while their on leave because it’s such a tedious burden for People Teams and employees themselves, especially as employees disperse across the country and would potentially qualify for different programs in accordance with the state they reside.
Eventually, those employers realize they’re leaving a $*#!-ton of money on the table by not taking advantage of state support and so they turn to Tilt because we make this previously painful-yet-profitable process a cinch. We guide each employee through every step necessary to apply for state benefits, and have a team of Leave Success Managers (LSMs) at the ready should they have any questions. Tilt also won’t put you at legal risk by impersonating employees and filing for them on their behalf.

Compliance confidence: You know what’s nice to have? A team of leave law experts overseeing your LOA processes. Odds are if you’re reading this you’re far too familiar with late-night Google searches for leave laws in states you’ve never stepped foot in. Tilt’s in-house leave law experts are the compliance cortex powering our LOA platform and backing our LSMs. They ensure that when one of your employees needs to take a leave of absence the latest leave laws are being adhered to, no matter the leave and no matter the state.
In addition to our team of leave law gurus, we automate FMLA determination, educate managers so they know how to avoid legal landmines, and provide a consistent leave experience for every employee, every time, so you can rest easy knowing you won’t potentially have a costly discrimination suit on your hands.
Employee engagement: An engaged workforce is a profitable workforce, yet far too often when employees take a leave of absence they’re met with a carrier’s 1-800 number or an overworked and understaffed People Team trying to get them the information they need in a timely manner. Without manager education employees may be receiving inappropriate (and potentially illegal) communication about work while on leave. All of this leads to employees returning to work feeling unsupported and unsure of their future with the organization.
By investing in Tilt, you’re investing in your employees returning to work with a soft landing, because their managers are guided on how to successfully re-board them after the leave is complete. When employees feel supported on leave retention improves, saving time and money on recruiting efforts as well.
Your people put their blood, sweat, and tears (hopefully that’s just a figure of speech…) into your organization, so when life’s biggest moments happen, show them that they matter by giving them the Tilt LOA experience. Support. Education. Empathy. Ease.
Your employees will love you for making their time away from work a success and your leadership will love the boost to the organization’s profit goals and compliance standards. Of course, you’ll love Tilt because you no longer will have to lift a finger to do any of it.
Invest in your garden and watch the profits grow.
