On-the-job injury is a simple social policy issue, right? Well, not exactly… But it may be more straight-forward than you think.

Important topics that require determination and insight do need to be addressed, like injury benefit eligibility and benefit adequacy. Responsiveness. Simplicity. Access to medical care. Consistency. Financial security. Fairness. Justice. The list goes on.

But even with such a multi-faceted and important social policy issue, it may be possible to find agreement between those who prefer a heavily-regulated state workers’ compensation system, and those who prefer an advanced substitute.

You may have seen last week’s groundbreaking post on “19 Points of Agreement” by the Association for Responsible Alternatives to Workers’ Compensation (ARAWC). Turns out there is a lot of alignment between those two groups.

How did that happen? Simply put, it’s because they know better #business comes from taking care of injured workers.

To that end, PartnerSource delivers consulting expertise in helping Texas employers make the best choices when employees get injured on the job. An alternative to Texas workers’ comp is not always the right answer. But where appropriate, our clients (including many of the most respected American brands) see a higher return on investment and higher employee satisfaction under our Texas injury benefit programs. And they continue to choose our customized alternative, year-after-year.

On-the-job injury is not a simple social policy issue. But one thing we should all agree on is that caring for injured workers – through whichever system is most appropriate – is good business. And PartnerSource makes it better.
