I found this article very interesting on Return-to-Work (RTW) in the workers' compensation environment. Most would agree that the goal is to get employees back to work at pre-injury status or maximum improvement (MMI). Easier said than done however, and there are varying levels of success.
The fact that one third of employees that return to work experience a re-injury within 6 months demonstrates the non-linear and difficult nature of getting someone back to work. It takes expertise, finesse, knowledge and persistence to achieve the best outcomes. The results and outcomes we see speak to the quality of our staff and great partnerships with our clients.
This is a good read for anyone that wants a better feel for what's involved in case and claims management.
