Employee injury management is usually not given much thought until costs become significant. All companies are seriously impacted by the costs associated with workers' compensation claims that have been allowed to get out of control. Identifying the direct cost of loss is far easier than identifying the indirect cost to a business when the most skilled employees are no longer available. This is particularly true with trucking companies who rely on skilled drivers as the "on site" representative of the carrier. Late deliveries or damaged freight resulting from the utilization of unskilled or temporary drivers can have a devastating affect. With today's employee shortage, it is imperative to get all injured employees back to work as soon as possible.
Marsh has developed a proactive approach to controlling workers' compensation costs by involving all levels of management with information sharing and having the front line supervisor accountable to facilitate the return of the employee as soon as possible.
Marsh can design a comprehensive post-loss process that is specific to the client's needs. We also provide extensive training on the workers' compensation process to all levels of management and staff. Further, Marsh can integrate the program with those directly involved in managing workers' compensation claims to include:
Marsh can continue to pilot the program and provide monitoring and measurement tools, and provide follow up training and support as needed.
Reduction in overall workers' compensation cost is the primary benefit. The secondary benefit in having the injured employee returning to the workforce as quickly as possible through proactive management of the claim.
