The most victorious stage in an injured employee’s recovery is the final stage, the return to work. Workcom helps workers make a safe transition back to the workplace while also helping employers retain valued staff.
It is a complicated process in which many factors at the individual, organisational and external levels interact to influence an employees recovery, their absence from work, and the suitability and timing of their return to work.
A positive return to work outcome relies on all involved (the injured worker, their employer, their doctor and their therapists), being on the same page and working effectively together.
