Lakewood Ranch, FL – Work Comp College recently announced a Bronze Associate Partnership with The Builders Group (TBG). This partnership closely corresponds to and helps fulfill TBG’s guiding principle … “If responsible people acted responsibly, everyone wins.”
“TBG offers a unique workers’ comp solution to the construction industry through our group, self-insured fund,” says Stu Thompson, TBG’s CEO. “TBG was built for the trades, by the trades, and that simple truth continues to guide our actions today. Everything we do is designed to support our members, create a culture of safety, and help grow their businesses. We are looking forward to working with Work Comp College to discover innovative opportunities that will lead the way in the workers’ comp industry and provide greater levels of support and services to our members and their workers.”
Mark Pew, Provost of Workers’ Compensation Educational Services, LLC, says, “The construction industry offers a unique challenge in workers’ compensation and TBG has been serving their members in that space exceedingly well since 1997. We appreciate their strategic vision in partnering with us to further their focus on their compassionate attention to the safe return to work of the men and women that build.”
Leaders in the workers’ compensation industry have long been calling for better ways to manage claims and improve outcomes for injured employees. Different names and phrases have been used to define this idea – workers’ recovery, advocacy-based claims management, bio-psychosocial adoption, whole-person care – but all center around the same critical realization: Treating the entire person. The key to this approach is developing an understanding of the injured employee’s psychology and thought process, and employing clear, concise, and consistent communication methods. This process is regarded as a better way to improve clinical outcomes while reducing friction and cost and restoring humanity to the process.
WorkCompCollege.com is a community-driven effort designed to address those needs and will help continue the trend toward lower costs and improved results through education, information exchange, and mentorship.
Educational services include the Workers’ Recovery Professional (WRP) and WRP Associate certification programs, a State-Specific Training Program and the Advanced Training & Education Center (ATEC). Current students and graduates represent every stakeholder in the work comp ecosystem throughout the United States.
