Supporting people into a new and sustainable role
Our New Employer Service prepares workers for alternative career opportunities
Some injured workers will be unable to return to their original place of employment or vocation.
Our New Employer Service helps guide injured workers through this time of change by preparing them for redeployment to suitable new career pathways and workplaces.
With the goal of maximising work capacity and enhancing return to work outcomes, we seek to minimise the barriers to redeployment in a timely and cost-effective manner. We ensure detection of all barriers to work, be they attitudinal, psychological, social or work-readiness. We address each. Interventions focused on readiness to change increase the likelihood of a positive outcome by 20%.
It’s a service that requires specialist skills.
Therefore, our rehabilitation consultants leverage the expertise of specialists at various stages of the program to facilitate outcomes while maintaining ownership and accountability for each person’s return to work.
Specialists within our New Employer Service program include:
- Vocational assessors:
to deliver an accurate and robust assessment of worker’s needs and to build resilience for change
- Occupational Therapists and Exercise Physiologists:
to build physical capacity of workers to maximise output ability at work
- Employment services consultants:
to assist in the development of job seeking skills
- Placement specialists:
to identify and create suitable job opportunities to link candidates with the right jobs or Work Trials. Our specialists draw upon our extensive network of proven employers, or effectively promote candidates to employers in areas of labour market demand
