An organization’s workforce is its most valuable asset. And when an employee can’t work due to illness or injury, it impacts not only an organization’s productivity, but also its morale.
The Return-to-Work Toolkit Provides Valuable Resources
The Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) in the US Department of Labor created its new online Return-to-Work Toolkit to help employers and employees understand the return-to-work process and provide resources to assist in getting employees back on the job quickly and smoothly.
Effective return-to-work approaches can protect an employee’s earning power and boost an organization’s output as the employee adds value while still recuperating. Furthermore, in many instances, work itself plays an important role in the recovery process.
Employees Can Benefit from the Toolkit
With effective accommodations and a clear understanding of the return-to-work process, employees can be back on the job sooner and retain their income. Employees can use this toolkit to get started.
