Our System at Work


Every time an employee successfully returns to work after an injury, it's a success for the entire workers compensation system. NCCI, with the participation of insurers, employers, state-supported programs, and employees, is sharing stories of how our system works effectively when we collaborate for a positive outcome. Each story is different, but all the stakeholders share a common goal—to help injured workers recover and successfully return to work.
