Return to Work Job Placement...in 3 weeks
The proof in how our Return to Work program is successful in providing cost savings is in our clients’ successes. Our customers include companies in industries such as retail, hospitality, labor, aviation, transportation, healthcare and more. The below case study is a real-world example
HIGH EXPOSURE CLAIM FOR NATIONAL RETAIL EMPLOYER
Return to Work Demographics
- Illinois work comp claim
- 6 1/2 years since injury
- Lower back
- Medium Duty - no lift over 50lbs
- AWW - $420.00
Claimant worked for insured for 6 years prior to
As is the majority of the time, we were asked by our client to assist this claimant back to work within stated physical restrictions. RTW restrictions on this claim were simple and straight-forward – no lifting above 50 lbs. Easy to advocate for to employers! This claim had been a growing problem for our client thus they decided to put aggressive Voc. on it…and the rest is history!
Approximately three weeks later, after only his second job lead we secured, the claimant was hired. The claimant was compliant and showed an enthusiasm of wanting to work. His attitude plus our aggressive way of performing job placement resulted in a very quick job hire!
This case is a prime example of why direct employer contact is crucial and so effective for gaining the upper hand on claims via Return to Work. Had we not called the employer and verbally set up the interview, and instead asked the claimant to simply apply, the claimant’s application likely would have been passed up because the claimant had no relevant experience pertaining to this job. By calling employers directly we can sell the claimant’s strengths, work ethic and personality to get the employer interested. This is one of the key differences between our Return to Work program and our competitors.
If your current RTW vendor is simply supplying job leads to your claimants…much better, much more effective, cost-savings services are out there! We would be happy to discuss our program should you have interest!
Another example of how aggressive RTW will help the defense save significant money on high exposure claims. The difference between a passive RTW vendor and an aggressive vendor could be literally hundreds of thousands of dollars per claim!
