From the onset of claim until return to work, Acclaim’s Ability Management Consultants manage non-occupational absences from work. Our goal is a timely and healthy return to work, making sure employees feel supported and connected to their workplace while recovering from illness and/or injury.
Acclaim’s WCB Specialists can assist your team to reduce your occupational injury-related costs. We accomplish this through: the active management of workers’ compensation claims; providing appeals and tribunals support; offering cost-relief and classification reviews and developing prevention programs with onsite visits and training for your team. The goal is to both provide support for your employees to facilitate a healthy and timely return to work while at the same time minimize overall disability claims and costs to the employer.
We provide a comprehensive review of an organization’s existing disability management resources, structure/workflow, occupational/non-occupational costs and objectives. By grading your current system against industry best practices, we can recommend any steps required to create a more healthy and productive workplace. Acclaim offers three types of Audits: NIDMAR CBDMA, NIDMAR WDMA and the Acclaim Audit. Each audit has its own strengths and fits a different need.
This program helps employers manage absenteeism and their associated costs. Our Ability Management Consultants track absences among staff who are returning to work before moving Short-Term Disability, in order to determine if the absences are medically valid or related to performance issues.
