Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features the release of a new whitepaper from Lockton on the importance and value of empathy and kindness when working with injured workers, which can also greatly reduce the cost of workers’ compensation claims.
Lockton noted that employers often overlook, undervalue, or interact poorly with injured employees, which can lead to lawsuits, longer return to work times, and reduction in productivity. In the whitepaper Lockton explains why an advocacy-based approach is best for both the employer and the employee, and offers a list of questions employers can ask themselves to assist in developing a better approach. Also included is a list of common components for inclusion in the development of their advocacy-based programs.
