In this issue of Customer Konektions we review some new initiatives from Konekt including the introduction of an online ergonomic assessment offering. With increasingly remote workforces and a growing number of employees working from home, the requirement to cost effectively assess the risk will be made easier for employers. This new Australian service offering will provide a low-cost risk management solution which will deliver detailed management reporting and allow for further risk diagnosis.

The Australian Federal Government has announced significant reform as part of its deregulation agenda, which will allow more national employers to be covered by the Comcare scheme. Willis Group discuss the implications of these changes.

In this issue of the newsletter we also profile Konekt’s extensive suite of Psychological Services, including the injury adjustment counselling which is designed to overcome the most frequently encountered psychological barriers in achieving a return to work outcome. These programs look to address the root cause of an individual’s issues and are designed to complement a return to work plan, not interfere with it.

We also provide an update on the performance of Konekt’s Return to Work New Employer Services which is showing significantly improved outcomes following our recent investment in the overhaul of the service delivery.

We are delighted to announce that we are entering into a significant sponsorship arrangement with Soldier On which will see us provide return to work services nationally for former returning Australian Defence Force members who are looking to secure new employment arrangements and successfully transition to the next phase of their life. It is our largest ever sponsorship, directed to a worthy group who are dedicated to making a difference. We have included some details if you also wish to consider a contribution to them.
