Fitness for Work

Sick or injured employees can pose a significant risk to your business. They can impact on productivity, efficiency, absenteeism, safety and personal injury claims. Managing fitness for work is complex. It requires a careful balance between compliance with employment laws, business needs and culture.

That is where Work Options come in!

Our team of experts will guide you through the obstacles, skillfully navigating to ensure 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” .
