Worlds Colliding: Benefits & Workers' Compensation

What is the key to

a healthier, more productive workforce?

As an HR professional, your employees’ health is a top priority. Everything from physical health, mental health, productivity and engagement are major contributing factors to running your organization effectively.

Employee Benefits and Workers' Compensation have a great deal of common ground when it comes to your employees' health, but we often overlook the importance of managing the crossover between the two.

Addressing the commonalities of both your employee benefits and workers' compensation departments can be the key to a healthier, more productive workforce.

In this webinar we will discuss:

  • Improving your employee benefits can lower your workers' compensation frequency. The relationship between the two is often overlooked, but they have a direct impact on each other. Addressing their common ground can make a big difference in managing your risk.
  • Understanding emerging issues that can impact both employee benefits and workers' compensation such as coronavirus, prioritizing mental health for employees injured at home or on the job, opioid and pain management, etc. We will keep you ahead of the curve and help you be prepared for when it affects your employees.
  • The power of managers caring and making meaningful connections with employees who are on leave due to a workplace injury (or any type of injury.) Being genuinely interested in your employees as people goes beyond quicker return to work and also retains top talent.
