Navigating Barrier to Return-to-Work

September 14, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

DID YOU KNOW THAT ACCORDING TO THE CANADIAN SOCIETY OF PROFESSIONALS IN DISABILITY MANAGEMENT THAT AFTER A YEAR ON SHORT-TERM DISABILITY, ONLY 20% OF INJURED WORKERS EVER RETURN TO THE JOB? LEARN ABOUT WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP FACILITATE AND MANAGE RETURN-TO-WORK FOR YOUR WORKERS.

Research by Ontario’s Workplace Safety and Insurance Board has shown that if a worker is not back on the job within 90 days of an injury, the chances they will ever return to work drop by 50 percent. After a year, notes the Canadian Society of Professionals in Disability Management, only 20% return to the job.

That’s why it is so critical to design a plan for supporting a smooth and timely transition back to work. Kirstin Sieben, Return to Work Team Manager from TeksMed Services, will be helping us understand and navigate the barriers to successful return to work to keep claims costs in check and strengthen employee engagement and culture.

In this webinar you will learn

  • New strategies to support and effectively manage return to work
  • Practical ways to address physical, mental, and logistical hurdles
  • About a proven approach to reducing the length of employee absences

With this insight, design a plan for supporting a smooth transition back to work to strengthen employee engagement and culture
