Tampa, FL – ReEmployAbility, the largest national provider of specialty early Return-to-Work (RTW) services and transitional employment programs, has published its latest Program Results Summary. The summary provides an overview of the Transition2Work program’s community impact, performance results, and outcomes for fiscal year 2014, as well as historical program results through December 2014.
ReEmployAbility’s Transition2Work program places injured workers at local nonprofit organizations to perform light duty work when their pre-injury employer cannot accommodate their physical restrictions on-site. The program has been offered nationwide since 2007. Transition2Work provides benefits to the injured worker, company, and the community.
Key highlights from ReEmployAbility’s Program Results Summary include:
- Community impact: During 2014, the company added over 5,000 new partners to its network, raising the total to more than 25,000 nationwide. An extensive nationwide network of nonprofit partners plays an integral role in the Transition2Work program’s success, helping ensure ReEmployAbility can find an appropriate accommodation for each injured worker. The company estimates that to date, Transition2Work program participants have provided approximately 1.7 million volunteer hours to local and national nonprofit organizations.
- Performance Results: In the fiscal year 2014, ReEmployAbility’s Transition2Work program claim referral volume increased by 40 percent over 2013 volume and the company expanded the scope of the program to include participants with non-occupational disabilities. During this period of growth, the company was able to effectively maintain high performance standards, achieving a 99 percent placement success rate and, on average, securing appropriate nonprofit in less than 2 days.
- Program outcomes: 56 percent of the injured employees referred to the Transition2Work program participate in a nonprofit assignment and those who participate volunteer for an average of 53 days in the assignment. Overall, 60 percent of employees referred will successfully return-to-work with their pre-injury employer, reach Maximum Medical Improvement (MMI), or settle their Workers’ Compensation claim, which benefits the employee, employer, and insurance company. On average, employers realize Workers’ Compensation indemnity cost savings of $4,900 per claim referred to the program.
Return-to-Work programs such as Transition2Work allow injured workers to engage in meaningful and productive work, keep a flexible work schedule, maintain daily work habits, make a positive impact on the community, and return to work faster.
