REA LOGO 2016 blog header

Brandon, Florida (May 30th, 2024) – will host a free webinar to educate the worker’s compensation industry and stakeholders on the crucial importance of cultivating empathy in claims. Join the webinar on advocating for behavioral health in worker’s compensation claims and integrating it into return-to-work programs. Learn strategies to educate stakeholders, leverage nontraditional programs, and use community resources for mental health support. Let’s take concrete steps toward promoting behavioral health advocacy in worker’s compensation. 

Many industries face unique challenges when addressing the behavioral health and recovery of injured workers. Recognizing that there is no one-size-fits-all solution for overcoming these challenges is essential. Companies need options that prioritize the holistic recovery of individuals and minimize disruptions to daily operations. Injured workers can benefit from temporary light-duty assignments and access to resources addressing mental health issues. 

Focusing on empathy and whole-person recovery can help individuals recover more effectively and efficiently. Moreover, recognizing and supporting an individual’s abilities during the healing process can enhance their overall recovery. 

Todd Loomis, ReEmployAbility’s National Sales Manager, will lead the discussion and feature a panel of experts, including: 

  • Dr. Les Kertay, Industry Consultant and Co-Dean at WorkCompCollege 
  • Mollie Kallen, VP of Business Development for The IMA Group 

Panelists will discuss the impact of behavioral and mental health on recovery and worker’s compensation claims while communicating actionable steps for industry professionals. 

Kertay, Kallen, and Loomis will delve into the practicality of integrating various forms of behavioral health support for injured workers. They will share best practices and real-world examples and equip stakeholders with tangible strategies that can be immediately incorporated into their professional work, ensuring the webinar’s direct relevance to daily operations. 

The webinar “Empathy in Action,” featuring presentations from industry experts, is scheduled for Wednesday, June 26th, 2024, from 1 pm – 2 pm EST. This is a unique opportunity to gain valuable insights into the role of empathy and mental health advocacy in worker’s compensation claims. Seats are limited; don’t miss out! 

Registration link for the webinar is available on the WorkCompCollege website.
