Boca Raton, FL – NCCI recently released a new Insights report based on the results of interviews with various employer professionals to get perspectives on return-to-work programs (post-injury).
This is the second of two articles related to return-to-work perspectives. The views and opinions expressed in the article belong solely to those interviewed, and do not necessarily reflect the views or opinions of NCCI.
Helping an injured employee recover and return to work (RTW) safely is a fundamental component of a healthy workers compensation (WC) system. A successful RTW program and post-injury outcome may include many facets, such as developing a strategic plan before an accident occurs and establishing connections between the injured employee and their workplace throughout the entire WC journey. These actions can benefit everyone—from the injured employee and their family to their employer and insurer.
NCCI interviewed employers from a variety of industries—a healthcare system, a school district, and a construction company focused on transportation infrastructure, and includes commonalities identified by the participants toward achieving a successful RTW program.
