Evaluating Post-Injury Productivity

Sometimes, your employee may become involved in an unforeseeable accident. These accidents may cause physical and/or emotional injuries that could have a profound impact on productivity. Although it may seem difficult to accurately evaluate your employee’s levels of productivity following their accident, our programs at WorkSTEPS are designed to do exactly this.

Post-employment evaluations can help employers find the source(s) of any lags in productivity by their current employees, whether caused by an injury or otherwise. You don’t have to wait until your employees are injured to get involved in a WorkSTEPS program.

Post-Employment Evaluations

Once you have already hired your employees and their productivity levels seem adequate, you might not think about evaluating them regularly. However, after an injury, an employee’s ability to perform his or her job may be severely limited. If you collect productivity data about an employee prior to their injury, it may be easier to assess any adverse effects their injury imposed on them. Post-employment testing for injured employees involves:

  • Fit-for-duty testing
  • Functional capacity evaluations
  • Sincerity-of-effort evaluations

Through our post-employment evaluations, WorkSTEPS can help ensure busy employers that their employees are working to the best of their abilities. By contacting a provider within our nationwide network, you can get an accurate assessment of your employees’ productivity levels.
