Adam Kelly is Senior Vice President, Absence Management Solutions, and has been with Morneau Shepell since March 2000. He is one of Morneau Shepell’s national practice leaders in the areas of absence prevention and absence management, supporting clients with progressive solutions to manage the costs associated with absenteeism, occupational injury/illness (workers’ compensation) and non-occupational disability (or equivalents, such as sick leave accumulation plans). Adam also supports organizations with the development of prevention based platforms that are focused on risk management for both occupational and non-occupational injury and illness.
Adam takes a highly consultative approach to bridging best practices in health management with the client organizations he supports, recognizing that each organization has a unique blend of objectives, policies, practices and organizational cultures that impact outcomes. By working with clients to clearly understand their objectives, his accountability is to support clients with the development of solutions that will balance budgetary considerations with desired outcomes.
Adam has supported hundreds of national and regional clients in both the private and public sector, union and non-union environments, with health and productivity programs targeting cost reduction, cost avoidance, employee/supervisor engagement, and attendance/absence management.
Adam holds an Honours BA in Economics and International Development from Dalhousie University and has his Group Benefits Associate (GBA) designation. He is currently working on a diploma in Health Management through the University of Fredericton.
