When an unexpected injury or disability prevents an experienced, valued employee from working temporarily, employers may face difficult choices. Most want to do their best to support employees, and the reality is that training new workers costs time and money. Fortunately, employers can use a number of strategies to help valued employees stay at work or return to work following the onset of illness or disability. Often, just a few simple modifications to an employee’s work environment, duties or schedule can facilitate their remaining a valuable member of the team. What’s more, in many instances, work itself can play an important role in the recovery process benefiting both employee and employer for years to come. In this webinar, participants will learn about a wide range of “stay at work” and “return to work” policies and practices that can reduce workers’ compensation costs and health-related absences while increasing productivity and retaining essential human capital.
