“I think the program is an excellent way to help our light duty employees get back into the workforce until they can come back on board with [our company]. ReEmployAbility made it very easy to find and place our workers. You guys did all the heavy lifting. [Our company] looks forward to working with your team in the future as well.”

— Employer client

We know workers’ compensation claims can be complicated, so we’ve created programs and policies that simplify the process to help injured workers return to work quickly. Our programs are designed to comply with state laws regarding return-to-work legislation and make the process easy for the employer. Our staff provides exceptional service, delivering on their commitments and filling a vital role of liaison between adjuster, employer, and injured worker. …We are happy to do the heavy lifting for our clients!

Nonprofit Spotlight: The Palmetto Thrift Store

By Ashley Suarino | June 25, 2015

The Palmetto Thrift Store is focused on providing financial assistance to local children with cancer and  high-quality service and customer satisfaction to their clientele. The store was formed in 2007 and teamed up with Children’s Chance, an organization in Columbia, South Carolina that helps families dealing with pediatric cancer. The Palmetto Thrift Store donates fifty percent of its profits to Children’s Chance!

Our Transition2Work Partnership

ReEmployAbility has been able to send several volunteers to The Palmetto Thrift store. The volunteers we sent them have made a difference, owners of Palmetto Thrift Store said, “They have done outstanding work and helped us get caught up on things we would have NEVER been able to get caught up on. We hope to continue to have a partnership with ReEmployAbility for a long time.” Our Transition2Work program participants help the thrift store by cleaning and testing appliances/electronics, sorting through donated items, and maintaining the store’s appearance.

We value the partnership we’ve had with The Palmetto Thrift Store for the past year and plan on continuing to send them new volunteers in the future.

Happy Thanksgiving from ReEmployAbility

By Rebecca Dearth | November 25, 2014

Thanksgiving-2014

During this special time of the year, we reflect upon the things for which we are most thankful. Our team is deeply grateful for the opportunity to serve the thousands of injured workers, employers, nonprofit organizations, insurance carriers, third-party claims administrators, and communities across the United States who benefit from our programs. We are thankful for the many ‘win-win’ outcomes our partnership has created in 2014 – together, we’ve helped injured employees transition back to work by focusing on their capabilities, and in turn, provided more than 2,000 local communities with over 500,000 hours of much needed volunteer time.

Helping people get back to work faster is what we do best and we sincerely appreciate our association. We are honored and inspired to be working together to positively touch the lives of so many each and every day.

Warmest wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving!

Nonprofit Partner Spotlight: Disabled Veterans Charities

By Rebecca Dearth | November 11, 2014

Veterans Day 2014

Today, as we honor the brave men and women who have served and sacrificed for our nation, we are featuring our Transition2Work nonprofit partner, Disabled Veterans Charities. ReEmployAbility is proud to partner with DVC to support its mission of service to our veteran community. By focusing on the capabilities of injured workers, together we can continue to positively impact the lives of our participants and local communities.

About Disabled Veterans Charities

Disabled Veterans Charities (DVC) is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit charity based in Southern California that operates thrift stores to raise funds in support of the veteran community. Established in 1968 as Disabled American Charities of San Gabriel Valley, the organization has since grown beyond its original Pasadena, California location to include four large thrift store facilities. Each DVCs thrift shops provides over 12,000 square feet of merchandise such as clothing, housewares, and small furniture items.

The mission of DVC is, “to assist disabled and needy veterans… by operating thrift stores, the proceeds of which provide physical and mental rehabilitation programs and other charitable veteran-related projects.” In recent years, DVC has provided substantial support to veterans’ organizations such as US Vets, Union Rescue Mission, DAV Chapter 22, and New Directions, Inc. Grants and partnerships with these initiatives have helped provide housing for homeless and at-risk veterans and their families, reintegration services such as counseling, employment assistance, and job placement, and advocacy and assistance with veteran-related issues.

Transition2Work Partnership

DVC is one of over one-hundred Veteran-related local and national nonprofit agencies across the US that partners with ReEmployAbility through its Transition2Work nonprofit light duty placement program. Our partnership began in 2011 and DVC has since helped our program’s injured workers transition to productive work by hosting nearly 70 volunteers at its Baldwin Park, Long Beach, and San Bernadino locations. While in placement with DVC, program participants have served in roles such as Donation Attendants, Thrift Store Associates, and Facility Assistants.

“Volunteers are very important to our organization,” says Jill Willinger, Manager of DVC Thrift Shop at Long Beach. “[The transitional workers participating in Transition2Work] provide assistance to my staff in sorting, hanging, putting racks of clothes away on the sales floor, keeping the store organized, and in some cases they even provide customer service… They are a tremendous help.”

Visit us in Vegas to learn about Transition2Work for Non-Occupational Disabilities

By Rebecca Dearth | November 6, 2014

NWCDC-Email-Announcement

Later this month, our team will be exhibiting at 23rd Annual National Workers’ Compensation and Disability Conference & Expo (NWCDC) in Las Vagas, NV.  At this year’s conference, November 19 through 21, we will be introducing our Transition2Work program to include all forms of short term job modification needs of employers.

Since 2007, we’ve offered Transition2Work nationwide as a supplement to workers’ compensation Return-to-Work programs.  By placing injured workers at local nonprofit organizations to perform light duty work when their employer cannot accommodate their physical restrictions on-site, the program provides benefits to the injured worker, company, and the community.  Those same benefits our workers’ compensation clients already realize  — costs savings, reduced claim duration, and helping injured workers get back to work quickly while making a positive contribution to their community — extend to non-occupational disability claims.

Our clients are increasingly seeking comprehensive solutions to not only accommodate occupational injuries, but also temporary non-occupational disabilities. Those clients who are already using Transition2Work for their Integrated Disability programs are experiencing excellent results, including positive feedback from their employees, which is a defining factor for any successful Return-to-Work program.

The now in its 23rd year, the NWCDC is attended by over 260 vendors and 2,000 industry professionals from across the United States and considered to be a leading training event for workers’ compensation and disability management industries. As a leading event focusing on both workers’ compensation and disability management, the NWCDC is the right place for us to give introduction to Transition2Work for all injuries – both occupational and non-occupational.

If you’re planning to attend the conference, please stop and see us at booth 1610. We’d love to meet with you and share more about how our Transition2Work can be the perfect complement to your company’s existing Return-to-Work program!
