Konekt Office Spotlight: Canberra

The Canberra market is both unique and diverse. There is a heavy presence of federal government departments, state government as well as private enterprise, requiring the team on the ground to have an intimate understanding of the ACT, Comcare and NSW legislation, as well as customer specific requirements.

Konekt has a strong local footprint in the ACT and our team of allied health consultants have an in-depth understanding of the local legislative and customers requirements. Additionally, our local team are able to draw on the expertise of the national Konekt infrastructure to ensure that customer receive the best of both worlds – excellent local support and knowledge backed by a robust national support infrastructure.

Some great initiatives and projects have been borne from the needs of both local and national customers based in the ACT, and successfully adapted and implemented nationally. These include:

    • Long-tail claims projects for government departments
    • Injury adjustment counselling to manage bio-psychosocial barriers in a return to work program
    • Task analysis and injury management for national warehouse operations
    • Canberra trial of pre-employment assessment program designed
      to reduce workers compensation premiums now extended nationally

Konekt Canberra’s market intimacy and positive influence is supported by Konekt’s position on the Australian Rehabilitation Providers Association (ARPA) board where Konekt holds positions as President, Treasurer and Professional Development Committee Members (2) for the Canberra branch, contributing to the national ARPA body and striving to ensure Konekt is a
