Fitness for Work

Sick or injured employees can significantly impact on your business’s productivity, efficiency, safety and personal injury claims, as well as your bottom line.

Work Options’ Fitness for Work Services (F4W©) will help your business to select people capable of safely performing roles and to appropriately manage employees with health or injury concerns, ultimately protecting the employee and the business. We’ll give you peace of mind to navigate the balance between compliance and employment laws, business needs and culture, ensuring that you have the right people for the job – after all “fitting a square peg into a round hole is not only difficult, but damages either the peg or the hole” .
