Return-to-Work Toolkit for Employees & Employers
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.
With effective accommodations and a clear understanding of the return-to-work process, you can be back on the job sooner and retain your income. Use this toolkit to get started.
