Onsite Return to Work: A Sikorsky Approach

Since Lockheed Martin (LMC) acquired Sikorsky, medical treatment return-to-work (RTW) protocols have been developed in collaboration with Sikorsky and the local providers. Genex, LMC/Sikorsky and providers worked together to create job analyses and identified light duty jobs/tasks that could be utilized for various conditions – down to injury by body part. These protocols have been incorporated into an onsite RTW program which has resulted in a 49% reduction in the number of lost time days.
