The workers’ compensation industry in the United States is complex and heavily regulated. Additionally, post Y2K economic pressures resulted in the curtailing and elimination of traditional training programs, while consolidation and outsourcing resulted in higher case loads, less direct interaction and increased focus on the technical aspects of handling injured workers’ and their issues. Today, an aging industry facing the “great resignation” must refocus on proper human focused priorities in order to attract new talent and improve outcomes for all involved.
That is why the Workers’ Recovery Professional Certification (WRP) was created. It is an attempt to once again restore the “human element” to workers’ compensation, and train people to understand the many external factors that can so often see a basic injury turn into a failed outcome. By adopting a “Work Comp 360” whole person viewpoint, and leaning heavily on the understanding of biopyschosocial factors we encounter, injured workers can heal faster, while friction, litigation, and costs are reduced. Better outcomes for all involved. That is what the WRP is all about.
It is time to once again understand the “why” behind the “what.”
“What” we do is manage claims, providing indemnity benefits and medical services.
And this is our “why:” When properly conducted, the noble business of workers’ compensation restores shattered and broken lives. We return function and purpose to people who have experienced often tragic circumstances in their lives.
