  • Application Data

  • Person preparing this application
  • Primary person directly responsible for the workers' comp program
  • Share Your Success

  • At some point, your organization had an "A-Ha moment" and decided it was time to make some changes. That’s where your story starts. Tell us about the workers' compensation challenges you were facing — both pre-injury and post-injury.

    Then describe your journey toward identifying and implementing innovative solutions to those challenges. The judges are interested in a 360 degree view of your program, so please include, where applicable, your accomplishments in claims management, return-to-work, pharmacy management, and injury prevention. How did you achieve it?

    We love details: tell us about tough claims successfully resolved or initiatives that have been a game-changer for your program. If you're proud of it, we want to know about it.

    Tell us why your program should be designated as a Teddy Award winning program:
  • Numbers are always a part of the story too. Which of your numbers are making the top brass smile? Share the trend data that best represents the results of your workers' comp program improvements during the past five years. Examples include but are not limited to reductions in:

    • Injury frequency

    • Lost time days

    • Total claims costs

    • Medical costs

    • Indemnity costs

    • Experience mod

    (Please note any shifts in employee population that may have impacted these loss trends.)

    Numbers don't lie. How are your efforts impacting the bottom line?
