Return-to-work Case Management Processes And Programs, With Or Without Individual Coaching
Return-to-work case management processes and programs, with or without individual coaching

Although Burns-Hoffman Consulting designs and manages individual-specific return-to-work case management processes that include all relevant parties in the work re-entry and or re-deployment process, the preferred manner in which this type of process is managed is via a combination of personal coaching and case management.

The power of the engagement of the individual’s energy and encouragement of their personal responsibility with regard to work re-entry far outstrips the all too often experience of ‘pressure’ to go back to work via a case management process alone. The success and sustainability of any return-to-work program is directly linked to the personal energy of the individual, irrespective of the functional challenges experienced by such individual.

Although often seen to lie in the expert domain of an Industrial Psychologist, it is Elise’s combination of professional skills and experience that make this type of assessment a special offering under the banner of Burns-Hoffman Consulting, drawing on her understanding of the relevance of various medical and or psychological; financial; business; training and development; skills transferability; working environmental factors and life circumstances.
