Symetra Life Insurance Company purchased and is implementing FastTrack software from GettingHired LLC; the software is designed for employees on short- or long-term disability looking for help in returning to the workforce.

FastTrack’s Transitional Service Tools (TST) were built to keep employees engaged in return-to-work opportunities while on short-term disability leave. Symetra absence managers can then use TST to determine the requirements of a claimant’s current job, collect physical capabilities data from medical providers, and identify interim work assignments consistent with the employee’s limitations. This approach can reduce the possibility of a short-term leave progressing into a long-term disability claim.

“These new tools allow our absence managers to go beyond routine claims processing and proactively help employees get to a better place,” said Tom Foran, VP of Symetra’s Group Life and Disability Income Insurance business. “By setting high expectations for an employee’s success and providing the necessary resources to support his or her return to work, we can help deliver better results for the employer and the employee.”

Career Service Tools (CST) were designed for employees on long-term disability leaves looking to re-enter the workforce. By way of one-on-one career counseling, vocational support, mentoring, interview skills training and job placement services, CST attempts to demonstrate the worker’s employability and motivation to get back to work.
