Our modified duty off-site program helps clients find light-duty options for their injured employees through traditional placements or virtual programs, allowing them to recover while working from their employer’s location or from their home.
SHEAKLEY’S RETURN-TO-WORK SOLUTION
The Road to Recovery
For employers who struggle with accommodating light-duty work restrictions, we use our national network of non-profit organizations to assist our clients by temporarily placing disabled workers during their transition back to work.
DOWN, BUT NOT OUT.
Keeping Your Injured Workforce Engaged
Statistically, the likelihood of an injured employee returning to work after 6 months is only 50%. This leads to increased turnover rates, leaving your staff short-handed and stressed to find a replacement. Our client-focused approach helps your employees quickly and safely transition back to the workplace through our Modified Duty Off-Site program.
Cost of employee turnover
On average, it can cost an employer between 50% – 60% of an employee’s salary to replace him or her.
The cost to replace an employee earning $40,000 annually can range between $20,000 – $24,000 in recruiting and training costs, reduced productivity, interview time, etc.

ACCOMMODATING WORK RESTRICTIONS
Modified Duty Off-Site Services
Our return to work approach helps our clients return employees to safe, productive, light-duty work environments. This allows them to contribute to valuable work through our national non-profit network while they receive their necessary medical care.
Modified Duty Off-Site Services
As a cost-effective resolution to light-duty assignments, our return-to-work program helps employers save on their loss time injury rate, claims cost and helps promote an employee focused culture.
Expedited Return to Work
Placements occur within no more than 2 business days, even in remote or low-population areas, helping employees return to work quicker.
Claim and Premium Savings
By keeping employees in a light-duty position, employers reduce indemnity costs paid, which ultimately impacts premium liability.
Keeping employees active has proven to reduce long-term medical costs in disability claims.
Promoting an Employee Focused Culture
A return-to-work program helps employers provide a positive message to their organization that they promote return-to-work solutions and community involvement.
Reduced OSHA Reportable Days
Eliminating OSHA reportable lost days will improve their overall return-to-work rate.
MODIFIED DUTY OFF-SITE SERVICES
Our advanced return-to-work program ensures your employees are placed in a fulfilling position that allows them to focus on their recovery and regain the confidence they need when making the transition back to the workplace.
No Lost Wages or Benefits
Full wages and employment benefits are paid during the disability period, so employees aren’t financially burdened. They also maintain loyalty to their employer and are less likely to seek legal counsel.
Improved Sense of Value
When employees are giving back to their community, they often have a sense of accomplishment and purpose.
Reduced Disability Period
By working in roles that meet their physical restrictions, employees are able to remain gainfully employed without risking injury during their recovery period.
Remain Productive During Disability
Because employees remain gainfully employed, they are less likely to develop a “disability syndrome” in which they become accustom to remaining off work.
