Upskilling our frontline managers is a critical piece in an effective workers' compensation management system. As a Return to Work Co-ordinator or a person managing injured workers' back to work we should be collaborating with frontline managers and supervisors to assist with getting injured workers' back to work as soon as possible. However if we don't adequately equip these staff in the complexities of the workers' compensation system and what part they need to play, then how can we genuinely expect them to take the necessary steps needed to get an injured worker back to work successfully?
