As an industry leader, ReEmployAbility has expanded its Transition2Work program in response to the changing marketplace dynamics due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The program now includes a “Work from Home” program for injured workers who need a greater variety of return-to-work options.
This program was originally launched in 2019 to assist injured workers and has recently grown in importance due to increasing demand for social distancing initiatives. Today, we have partnerships with not-for-profits around the country that need injured workers to work from home.
The “Work from Home” program includes not-for-profit organizations with opportunities that are aligned with the language, capabilities, and technological proficiency of our Transition2Work participants. The Work from Home or Employer Worksite program ensures meaningful and safe return-to-work for injured workers as the country manages the impact of the pandemic. The program also provides greater flexibility to enable employers to accommodate employees who require difficult work restrictions such as frequent medication requirements, no driving, or low physical activity.
The Work from Home or Employer Worksite program has been developed through national and local not-for-profits that provide opportunities that meet ReEmployAbility’s standards on meaningful return-to-work. Injured workers that have already participated in the program have had successful outcomes and a positive return-to-work experience.
Not-for-profits ReEmployAbility partners with are hands-on with their remote workers, requiring them to complete a virtual orientation, completing daily check-ins, and providing on-going training to ensure their work is meaningful to the organization.
“Just one of our not-for-profit partners is hosting 5 injured workers in our remote program,” said Lindsey Bressi. “They are willing to take up to 3 more injured workers that can work from home, so the need is there. We are working diligently to match injured workers and their skills to the right not-for-profit partner, so everyone wins.”
