Return to Work Coordinator news

Skill Building Program 2023-24

In 2022-23 we conducted two focus groups, delivered an employer forum to over 60 attendees and distributed impact surveys three months following many of our skill building workshops. We asked Return to Work Coordinators and employers what workshops and topics they wanted to see as part of this year’s program. This included workshop delivery method and how we can assist Return to Work Coordinators and employers to make greater workplace impact to improve return to work outcomes and create sustainable mentally healthy workplaces.

2022-23 was a year of information gathering for our Employer Education and Mentally Healthy Workplaces Teams.
