At Astellas Pharma, one of the most productive thought areas for making benefits plan and policy improvements has come from their Astellas Abilities Employee Impact Group. The Abilities EIG, comprised of employees focused on improving the lives of people living with disabilities, provides recommendations to their Benefits Team that are impactful, practical and can be implemented in a short period of time. The company also uses benchmarking data from other companies and various national councils on best practices in the disability space.
