    We want to extend our sincerest appreciation for the generous support of our past sponsors and hope to continue that relationship this year. If you have not participated before, we are asking for your support this year by inviting your organization to become a sponsor of the “HIRE ME!” Job Fair.

    Proceeds from this event directly impact the Coastal Bend! The mission of the Job Fair is to connect individuals in our community with organizations looking to hire and expand their workforce.

    What a great opportunity for all of us, as Human Resource Professionals, to truly serve our community while supporting our employers! Without the help of our community and generous sponsors, like you, events like this would not exist.

    Workers' Compensation: What's HR Got to Do With It?

    Presented by:

    Pat Crawford

    Workers' Compensation/Return to Work Specialist

    Texas Division of Workers' Compensation


    Understanding the factors that drive work comp costs, that may not be directly related to an injury, is critical for employers in managing their costs.  

    The longer an injured employee is away from work, the higher the employers’ costs and the worse the impact of the injury is on the employee.  Eliminating unnecessary lost time is a critical factor, with or without workers’ comp.  

    You Will Learn:

    This session provides tools to address and avoid issues that result from medically unnecessary lost time.  Costly turnover is eliminated; business and workers’ compensation costs are significantly reduced.  Learn how to be proactive in managing issues around job related injury, participate in the management of claims, and avoid some of the pitfalls faced by employers in getting injured employees back to work.
