Numerous studies have shown that injured employees recover faster when they return to work. In addition, their return can decrease claims expenses, limit downtime, and eliminate the need for additional staff.
A well-planned Return to Work (RTW) program can help bring your injured employee safely back to work as early as possible in a modified or transitional position.
You gradually adjust the transitional job to accommodate the employee’s improving physical condition until they can return to their usual duties. You reduce your costs. Your employee can return to a self-supporting status. Everybody benefits. Doesn’t that make good sense?
If you have an open claim, let your claims representative know if you may be able to provide your injured employee with a transitional, modified, or alternative job.
