How to Humanize Workers Comp and Make Worker Advocacy Real

Simplifying and humanizing the workers comp process benefits injured workers and employers alike, but many aren’t doing enough to put workers first. Here’s what a true advocacy approach demands.

White Paper Summary

The concept of injured worker advocacy is not new in workers comp.

“We strongly believe that taking a more holistic and human approach produces better claim outcomes for both injured workers and their employers,” said David Dwortz, President, Helmsman Management Services.

And with the strong economy and lack of skilled workers, this approach to worker advocacy is even more critical. “In the current business climate, there is a fight for talent. For businesses, there is strategic advantage in attracting and retaining top talent, and that includes those who have been injured on the job. Helping injured workers recover and return to work is more important than ever,” said Dwortz.

And yet, advocacy remains difficult to implement because it runs counter to the traditional workers comp model, which is typically task-oriented and lacks transparency.
