Your employees are probably more productive when they are healthy. Cigna's disability programs focuses on helping them stay healthy and at work. We believe one of the best ways to reduce a disability-related absence is to prevent it from occurring in the first place. That’s why, in addition to helping employees while they are out of work, our disability programs focus on helping them stay healthier at work.
