Building a Chain of Contacts
When developing a program, it is also important that the program be led by a physician who is responsible for the employee’s recovery. A doctor may raise a concern about the program if he sees activities in the program that could physically aggravate the employee’s condition.
It is in the company’s and employee’s interest to hear the doctor’s opinion. Otherwise, the recovery process could be further delayed, resulting in lost production for the company and lost income for employees, as well as medical hardship.
4.Use Timed Milestones
Without timed deadlines, tasks are meaningless. For a changelist program to function properly, it must contain time-limited SMART milestones. These milestones may coincide with recovery milestones set by your doctor.
The employee should be able to undertake progressively more difficult duties until they are performing substantially the same duties and functions in the position they held prior to the injury.
5.Building a Chain of Contacts
One of the most difficult parts of a changed job is staying in touch with the employee while they’re recuperating at home. Avoid misunderstandings by setting up a clear contact channel for the employee.
The person the worker needs to contact needs to know the worker’s role and condition. This can be, for example, a supervisor who has been informed about an employee’s health problems.
As in any employment relationship, achievement motivation is essential to ensure top performance. If the doctor allows it, see if you can retrain the employee for more difficult tasks and pay better according to their performance in the revised roster.
The recovering addict will have something to do. At a time when an employee is likely to have a lot of stress about their future with the company and their contribution to the team, this can make thinking about job security a lot easier.
