Return to Work
Why early Return to Work benefits your employees and your bottom line
Did you know that the longer an employee is off work due to an on-the-job injury, the less likely it is that the employee will ever return to work?
That's why employers and injured workers benefit from strong Return to Work programs. Even if injured employees can't return to their regular job right away, bringing them back as soon as possible by providing modified duty tasks or reduced hours helps them:
- recover quicker
- stay in the routine of working
- feel productive
- maintain workplace relationships
Employers benefit from bringing injured employees back to work as soon as they're medically able because it:
- allows experienced workers to stay in the workplace
- helps to control workers' compensation claim costs, which affects future premium
