A World of Opportunities

Workplace-based disability management focuses on returning workers who have been injured or ill to meaningful and productive work. In doing so it reduces the human and social costs to the employee and the financial costs of lost productivity and insurance to the employer. This rapidly expanding field offers you the opportunity:

  • For career advancement in Canada and internationally as corporations and organizations search for highly skilled disability management practitioners
  • For meaningful mid-career change that builds on your past education, skills and experiences and adds new, in-demand knowledge and skills
  • To improve your employability and salary potential
  • To gain credentials that are internationally recognized and respected
  • To be at the cutting edge, applying internationally recognized standards of disability management practice
  • To become a vital member of the disability management team, improving productivity and helping injured or ill employees
  • To establish your own business offering disability management solutions to organizations that outsource these services

High quality disability management requires that three things be in place  1) caring for each other; 2) partnership  with unions, governments and providers; and 3) robust return-to-work programs for all disabilities.–Steve Hill, formerly Senior Vice-President Human Resources, Weyerhaeuser
