Posted on by Jacqui Knott

We’re pleased to announce that we’ve been shortlisted for the East of England Living Wage Champion Award and share the release below:

RehabWorks Shortlisted for the Living Wage Champion Awards 2016 in the East

RehabWorks, with its head office in Bury St Edmunds, has been shortlisted by the Living Wage Foundation for the Living Wage Champion Awards 2016.

The awards recognise Living Wage employers that have made great contributions to communities and industries by implementing and celebrating the Living Wage.

The Living Wage Foundation offers a recognition mark for employers that commit to paying the Living Wage. There are now over 2700 accredited employers.

The Living Wage is calculated according to the basic cost of living using the ‘Minimum Income Standard’ for the UK. Decisions about what to include in this standard are set by the public; it is a social consensus about what people need to make ends meet. An employer chooses to pay the Living Wage on a voluntary basis and enjoys cross party support.

Living Wage Foundation Director, Katherine Chapman said:

“I would like to offer huge congratulations to RehabWorks on being shortlisted for the Living Wage Champion Awards. The commitment of Living Wage employers like RehabWorks to responsible pay makes a life changing difference to families and communities across the UK. We look forward to celebrating this even more when announcing the winners of the regional awards during Living Wage Week which will begin on October 31st.”

The award winners will be announced during Living Wage Week, with one winner announced for each region of the UK: Scotland; Wales; Northern Ireland; the East Midlands; the West Midlands; the East of England; Yorkshire and the Humber; North East England; North West England; South East England; South West England; and London.

An independent panel of community leaders from Citizens UK; national community organising charity and home of the Living Wage campaign judge the awards.

RehabWorks honoured at Rehabilitation First Awards

Posted on by Jacqui Knott

We’re delighted to have  scooped a Highly Commended Award in the ‘Provider initiative of the year’ at the Rehabilitation First Awards 2016 and share the news with you here:

The award was given in recognition of their outstanding work with Carnival UK, which operates 11 ships for the P&O and Cunard luxury cruise liner service employing 14,000 crew.

Since 2014 RehabWorks has been providing remote Musculoskeletal Health and Psychological Therapy Services to the crew while they are at sea, something which no other provider has ever attempted before; as a result they were able to support a reduction in sickness absence for musculoskeletal and mental health conditions by over 60% from 2014 to 2015.

The judges felt that RehabWorks’ innovative and collaborative approach demonstrated their ability to adapt to a client’s unique work environment and produced significant results.

RehabWorks has won a number of plaudits in recent years for its work in occupational health, complex case management and prevention programmes. With clients spanning leading private and public sector organisations, RehabWorks has a number of senior staff on industry boards such as the Case Management Society of the UK, Vocational Rehabilitation Association and the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Occupational Health.

Mark Armour at RehabWorks commented:

“One in four people in the UK are affected by common mental health problems such as anxiety and depression. “

“There is evidence that work focused Psychological Therapy support can accelerate the rehabilitation of an absent employee, even stop absenteeism saving the organisation money in the long run. For Carnival UK this has proved to be the case and the success of the collaboration has been recognised at the Rehabilitation First Awards.”

“Congratulations to our RehabWorks teams for all their hard work in successfully developing this innovation.”
