Date:10/15/2007

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- The Disability Management Employer Coalition (DMEC), the leading advocate of integrated disability management strategies in all absence and disability related employer programs, today announced that Mercer is a Platinum Sponsor of the growing association. Michael Klachefsky, Mercer principal and senior consultant for absence management, joined DMEC's Executive Advisory Board effective October 1, 2007.

"The addition of Mercer to the complement of the DMEC Executive Advisory Board and as a National platinum sponsor is one of the highlights of the 2007 year," said Marcia Carruthers, CEO of DMEC. "Mercer's reputation as one of the world's leading HR consultancies will add tremendous value in terms of the perspective and experience they bring to the table."

Mr. Klachefsky has been a member of Mercer's absence management consulting group for 12 years. He is currently responsible for developing Mercer's west- zone absence management practice and is also a member of Mercer's National Health & Productivity Management leadership team. As a national resource, he has worked with employers and insurers in the US and Canada to assess, design and implement absence management, disability management and return-to-work programs. His experience includes working with private industry, governments, unions and associations.

Mr. Klachefsky developed Canada's first program to help people with severe chronic mental illness enter the workforce and has since adopted this model into the insurance realm. He has presented on behavioral health disability, return to work, and other topics at numerous conferences across North America and developed many programs with employers and insurers.

Mr. Klachefsky has worked with DMEC for a number of years. "DMEC is an excellent showcase for Mercer's growing practices of Absence Management and Health and Productivity Management. The Coalition has a strong employer base and is effective in its mission at both the national and local levels. Their annual conference is the largest and best attended absence /disability management conference in North America."
