Helping an injured employee recover and return to work (RTW) safely is a fundamental component of a healthy workers compensation (WC) system. A successful RTW program and post-injury outcome may include many facets, such as developing a strategic plan before an accident occurs and establishing connections between the injured employee and their workplace throughout the entire WC journey. These actions can benefit everyone—from the injured employee and their family to their employer and insurer.
