What is the purpose of the Program?
The intention of the program is to acknowledge an employer’s commitment to Return to Wellness and thank them for their dedication. Sometimes the focus is only on employers who do not offer modified duty. The ecovery Recognition Program keeps Return to Wellness in a positive light and provides us with an opportunity to say “thank you” to your clients who embrace the ecovery philosophy, as well as provide additional employee ecovery education.
How does the Program work?
Both agents and Eastern team members can nominate an employer who has demonstrated a commitment to the ecovery and Return to Wellness philosophy by completing the ecovery Employer Recognition Program nomination form on the http://www.eains.com website. The form is submitted for Eastern’s review, and each quarter, approved nominees will be recognized.
Who should be nominated?
Employers who have demonstrated a commitment to the ecovery and Return to Wellness philosophy through such actions as: implementing and utilizing an ecovery Program, creatively providing opportunities for modified duty, or taking steps to incorporate ecovery into their workplace culture.
What will the employers receive?
Employers will receive a letter of appreciation and a placard to publicly display their commitment to the ecovery philosophy. Recipients will be listed on the ecovery website and blog. They will also receive instructions on how their employees can enter a quarterly drawing for a grand prize.
How do employees enter the drawing?
There will be instructions included in the letter to the recognized employers. The employer should notify Eastern within the provided time frame if they are interested in having their employees participate in the drawing. Eastern will then send the employer cards to distribute to each employee. The cards contain a link the employee can use to enter the drawing upon viewing a brief introduction to ecovery and completing a quick survey.
How often are nominees acknowledged?
At the end of each quarter (March, June, September and December), the person submitting the nomination form will be advised as to the status of the nomination. Employers who have been selected for recognition will receive a phone call from Eastern and will be mailed their recognition materials. The grand prize drawing occurs once per quarter, after which the winner, his/her employer, and the employer’s agent are notified.
