Understanding a Claimant’s realistic capacity and options for work often requires a Vocational Assessment. While traditionally these assessments have been comprehensive, Workcom’s flexible and experienced consultants are able to tailor the right Vocational Assessment to meet the needs of each individual case with the goal of return to work in mind. In every instance, Workcom’s Vocational Assessments will gain an understanding of a claimant’s capacity for employment and analyse their transferable skills based on their education, training and experience. We’ll also identify and strategise around potential barriers to vocational rehabilitation, recovery and the return to work process to ensure a practical and robust return to work plan. Identified options are practical, reflective of the claimant’s transferable skills and strengths and realistic within the labour market assessed. Wherever possible, options are considered utilising the claimant’s skill set, before exploring retraining; however, reasonable options for re-training and addressing key skill gaps can also be identified. Workcom can also provide vocational testing such as literacy testing and career inventories in the event that these are necessary to confirm suitable options.
