Return-to-Work Toolkit for Employees & Employers

Rob Guttenberg

Rob Guttenberg, Family Counselor and Parent Educator

An organization's workforce is its most valuable asset. And when an employee can't work due to illness or injury, it impacts not only an organization's productivity, but also its morale.

This toolkit helps both employers and employees understand the return-to-work process and provides resources to assist in getting employees back on the job quickly and smoothly.

Effective return-to-work approaches can help employees work while still recuperating, protecting their earning power and boosting an organization's output. Furthermore, in many instances, work itself plays an important role in the recovery process.

Employers

Strategies to return employees to work as quickly and smoothly as possible benefit everyone. Use this toolkit to learn about the tools and resources available to assist you with the return-to-work process.
