When a company experiences a 41 per cent fall in workers compensation premiums and a 45 per cent fall in their average cost of claims, people take notice.
The panel on the 2017 SafeWork Awards certainly took notice.The company now boasts the 2017 award for excellence in recovery at work for business.
Specialty Fashion Group, the largest specialty retailer of women’s fashion in Australasia – represented by brands such as Millers, Crossroads and Katies – has over 1200 stores throughout Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the United States. And it has invested heavily in developing an integrated revover@work program.
The program is built on the motto ‘a little happier, a little healthier, each day’. It includes a dedicated return to work team, surveys on how the program is working, 24/7 access to a medical advice hotline and, most importantly, financial commitment to the program from the board and CEO.
Surveys reveal that more than 90 per cent of the workforce love the program.
