ReEmployAbility Celebrates Ten Years and 7,000 Injured Workers Returned to Work

Dec 5 2013, 8:06am CST | by PR.com

Tampa, FL, December 05, 2013 --(PR.com)-- ReEmployAbility, the largest national provider of early return-to-work (RTW) services and transitional employment programs, announced the company’s tenth anniversary. Committed to helping injured workers return to their pre-injury employment, ReEmployAbility has helped more than 7,000 injured workers through their Transition2Work program.

“Ten years ago, Frances Ford and I set out on a mission to offer employers and carriers new ideas to return injured employees back to work sooner,” said Debra Livingston, co-founder of ReEmployAbility. “A decade later, ReEmployAbility has over 20 employees, offers a nationwide, innovative return-to-work program that has helped thousands of injured workers transition back to the workforce, and helps employers and carriers save thousands of dollars in indemnity costs.”

Through its Transition2Work program, ReEmployAbility places injured workers at local non-profit organizations to perform light duty work as a means of easing the injured worker back to the workforce. Using Official Disability Guidelines (ODG) to measure success of the program, the majority of injured workers who participated in the program have returned to work within 90% of the ODG guidelines. By calculating the number of days to return to work over or under those recommended by the ODG for the specific injury, and the corresponding cost per day, an early return to work equates to significant savings for the employer and the carrier.

“Our program provides employers a solution to retain employees,” said Frances Ford. “But the injured workers themselves benefit greatly by engaging in meaningful and productive work, keeping a flexible work schedule to accommodate doctor’s appointments and physical limitations, and retaining daily work habits.”

Through its Transition2Work program, ReEmployAbility places an employer’s injured workers on assignment at non-profit organizations for modified light duty work. The employee retains all the benefits of employment and the employer resumes the payment of wages. This keeps the employee connected to his pre-injury employer while the employer benefits in lower claims costs that impact experience ratios.

“I’m excited about the accomplishments and growth we have had in the first decade of our business,” said Ford. “But even more so for the thousands of injured workers we’ve helped make a successful and meaningful return to work.”
