What’s better than helping thousands of injured workers get back to work quickly while they heal? Also helping to make a positive impact on the community!
At ReEmployAbility, we believe in the value of return to work as the single most important factor that will drive success in a workers’ compensation program. That’s why more than a decade ago, we created Transition2Work to engage employees in their local community while they recover from an on-the-job injury. By combining business and community, everyone benefits.
Each year, we tabulate our program results so we can efficiently gauge the impact that our program has had on all of our partners, including the injured employee, nonprofit organizations, the community, employers, and carriers throughout the year.
The results are in!
