Return To Work Roundtable Opens on LinkedIn

14 May, 2012 Bob Wilson


Recently the managers of the Workers' Compensation Roundtable on LinkedIn asked the membership what kind of subgroups they would like to see added the group. We received excellent suggestions, and are pleased to announce that the first new subgroup from this discussion is now available.

The Return to Work Roundtable is now up and running for people interested in discussing specific ideas, challenges and issues pertaining to the RTW process in Workers' Compensation. The co-managers of the Workers' Compensation Roundtable will be joined in the RTW Roundtable by Mike Benishek, Director, Risk Management & Insurance for PTG Management Company. Those interested in joining the group can do so here.

Managing Growth Through Sub Groups:

The design of the LinkedIn forums make it very difficult to effectively track many active conversations at one time and that is a constant challenge for large, successful groups like the Workers' Compensation Roundtable, now approaching 5,000 members. As it continues to grow, the managers are looking to prevent the group from becoming too diluted, and the conversations and information from being “too hard to track”. Their primary concept for managing growth on the Roundtable is for doing so through what they refer to as a “hub and spoke” design. They envision the Roundtable itself being the core strength of the group (the “hub”), but to allow more targeted and focused discussions through select and better defined sub groups (the spokes”). The Return to Work Roundtable is the latest addition to these targeted groups.

Other subgroups of the WC Roundtable are:

WCLaw Talk by NWCDN
Workers' Compensation Technology Alliance
Workers' Compference - Workers' Comp Education Discussion Center
Friends of Sandy Blunt
