Comp Laude™ Awards were established in 2011 by WorkCompCentral, the workers compensation industry portal for news and education.

“CPC has invested heavily in improving every element of the experience an injured worker goes through when a workplace injury happens,” said Anne Alabach, Workers Compensation Manager at CPC Logistics. “This investment has resulted in improved outcomes, and in many cases fewer days missed due to injury because of the way CPC manages each case.”

Alabach highlights CPC’s work with industry leading partners such as ReEmployability™ and 2nd.MD for helping shape the company’s program improvements. In shaping program improvements, Alabach pointed to a couple specific examples of ways in which these partners improve outcomes:

ReEmployAbility Case Study:

  • Employee started working at Habitat for Humanity to help transition back to full-duty.  While in the program, employee was continuing to make progress medically toward a full recovery. Employee constantly communicated gratitude about being able to do good while recovering  from injury. Employee quotes: “I Cannot mention how beneficial that program was to help me through this time while I was out.” “The sense of purpose and the continued schedule made this time a lot easier.” This employee even received an award from Habitat for Humanity for the work provided while there.

2nd.MD Case Study:

  • Employee was being told from treating physician that back surgery may be required.  Employee mentioned concerns about the idea of back surgery numerous times.  Employee was provided the opportunity to speak with a 2nd.MD physician and was given additional avenues for recovery.   Employee followed 2nd.MD treatment plan and returned to full-duty, without the concern of having to worry about possible setbacks from back surgery. Employee was extremely thankful for the opportunity to speak to someone else and be given a new treatment path.

“These are just two examples of the additional care each one of CPC’s workers compensations claims receive,” Alabach said. “We believe whole-heartdely that our collaboration between our partners and our valued employees makes a huge difference in arriving at the best possible outcome, and we are thrilled that WorkCompCentral recognized us for it.”
