Konekt Market Report Vol. 2 is coming!

After the overwhelming success of the 2013 Konekt Market Report we promised we would deliver another valuable set of data to the industry – well, we’re getting close!

We have been busy wading through and analysing data as we develop the second iteration of the Konekt Market Report – Konekt Market Report Vol. 2. We cannot wait to share the updated data with you when the report is released early next year.

In the upcoming report we have not only analysed an additional 12 months of case data, we’ve also looked at the data through a number of new filters including industry type and organisation size. In doing so, we see some very interesting differences across industry types. We also see different outcomes and challenges facing organisations of different sizes.

The report provides updated information across the many areas presented last year in the 2013 Konekt Market Report, and where appropriate we have presented data by financial year to show changes over time highlighting key trends, improvements and areas requiring more focus.

The importance of early intervention is again highlighted as is some of the key difference between the compensable and non-compensable groups.

There have been some very pleasing improvements in return to work outcomes to report over the last financial year, particularly relating to compensable (those covered by workers compensation) referrals as well as some concerning continuing trends particularly in relation to the increasing delay in referral times.

Due to the ongoing significant burden of diseases associated with back injury we have added a feature where we look at our data related to back injuries.
