“Reimagine” is the key word for the workers’ compensation industry as it deals with its greatest current challenge: the generational change of talent. To help address this problem, a new organization called The Transitions has put together a team of industry professionals to think strategically about how to handle the influx and outflow of talent over the coming decade. The organization launched itself during a Jan. 21 webinar, “The Transitions Kickoff—Igniting the Flame.”
Together, the team plans to address several issues that affect talent development in workers’ compensation, including:
- Reimagining mentoring programs.
- Evolving business practices and processes to change the talent crisis trajectory.
- Addressing management and communication styles.
- Implementing new technology strategies.
The organization’s founders include notable workers’ compensation leaders, including Mark Pew, senior vice president of product development and marketing for Preferred Medical; Rachel Fikes, chief experience officer and director of the Workers’ Compensation Benchmarking Study, Rising Medical Solutions; Marques Torbert, chairman of Ametros; Claire Muselman, workers’ recovery unit director at Continental Western Group; Barry Bloom, managing principal, The bdb Group; and Drew Cortese, senior manager, claims analytics data security & financial controls, United Airlines.
