Efficient Return-to-Work Programs for Employers and Employees

Whether an employee is injured on the job or out on leave, their absence creates disruption in the workforce. Getting your employee back on the job is critical to your success—and theirs. Because workplace absences cost U.S. businesses as much as $100 billion annually, having a strong return-to-work (RTW) program is crucial to long-term success.

When an employee goes out on leave, Workpartners supports them every step of the way as they get well. That includes the final step—returning to work—which is just as important as the initial leave request. We coordinate occupational RTW as well as disability RTW and will partner with you to ensure your employees get back to work, ready to work.

A robust and effect RTW program can benefit your company in several important ways:

  • Increase productivity
  • Decrease stress and workloads for fellow employees
  • Reduce/Avoid labor replacement costs (hiring temps, contract workers, etc.)
  • Improve customer satisfaction
  • Maintain product quality
  • Improved employee morale
Identifying the gaps in your return to work program

When an employee is out on leave, we stay current about their medical condition and the time they need to fully recover. We connect them to other benefits (like your employee assistance program or workers’ compensation assistance) so they always have access to the right resources at the right time.

We educate your employee about the return-to-work process. As they progress in their recovery, we carefully review their status and ensure all requirements are met so they can safely resume their role.

In situations where an employee may be ready for some duties but not others, we consult with you so the worker can resume those aspects of their job while still abstaining from those they can’t perform.

Workpartners’ return-to-work services bridge the gap between the employer and the employee out on leave. The employee has a resource that helps them navigate through a difficult time in their lives, and the employer has a partner who understands how important return-to-work decisions are to the bottom line.

We’re able to achieve both of these important goals because we believe that employee leave and return-to-work decisions are meant to be managed, not simply processed.

Don’t let absence administration take over your to do list.

Our full suite of integrated absence management services includes short-term disability and leave administration. We can help employers looking for a trusted partner to reduce employees’ time away from work in an efficient, cost-effective manner.
