    • What measurement changes will we make in the future?

    • DFEC will also expand its Disability Management goals to include Postal Service workers once its workforce structure and operations become more defined.

    • DFEC’s Disability Management goals will include re-employment placements with private sector employers once the economy further stabilizes.

    Strategies
    Strategies

    • We are using new approaches.

      • DFEC will place greater emphasis on Federal employer efforts to re-employ injured workers through special initiatives including:

        • “POWER”, a government wide safety and health and workers’ compensation initiative to follow on Federal Worker 2000 and “SHARE”, and

        • legislative reform.

      • DFEC will enhance its return to work resources and methods, utilizing early intervention and other techniques recommended by independent program evaluations.

      • DFEC will work with specific Federal agencies to establish individualized targets and improve LPD and Returns to Work (RTW) based on nature or severity of injuries, or using new strategies appropriate to their workforce.

      • DFEC will continue to enhance its technology base to support greater access by agencies, providers and claimants to claims information, and greater ability to submit claim information on-line.

      • DFEC will utilize stakeholder surveys to develop customer service improvement goals.

    • Do these strategies make sense to you?
