Return-to-Work Programs

Our Name Says it All

At RTW, Inc (RTW) , we transform people from absent or idle to present and productive. Knowing that employees are your greatest assets, we developed a proprietary process that identifies potential problem claims within 48 hours using our proprietary ID15 process then intervene rapidly and meticulously using our exclusive proprietary blueprint, the RTW Solution. Nobody else can do this. As our name indicates, we are focused on Return to Work.

The excellent results we achieve with our proprietary processes are only half of the equation. The most successful programs return an employee to work and life, resulting in reduced cost and employee absenteeism. Having a job available that will allow the employee to return to work at less than 100% capacity is the key.
