Chattanooga, TN (PRWEB) November 16, 2010
Judgment Index USA, http://www.judgmentindex.com and the WorkRx Group, Ltd http://www.workrxgroup.com recently announced a strategic partnership to determine the impact of judgment, values and decision making on an individual’s work status following an injury, illness or a chronic disease. Gaining insight to a person’s work values, ability to plan and make sound decisions offers an untapped opportunity for employers to support a timely return to work. The likely outcomes of this partnership are:
1. New insights to the relationship between work and disability,
2. A more productive employee as well and
3. Reduced lost time costs for the employer.
Judgment USA, based in Chattanooga, Tennessee measures and develops an individual’s capacity to meet the judgment and decision making demands in the workplace. Its Judgment Index™ (JI) assessment tool is commonly used in employment screening and selection, workforce retention, safety & risk management and wellness implications. Another component of JI is the Judgment Coach, a series of electronic videos 3 to 4 minutes in length that further drive the development aspect of improving judgment. The JI and the work of Dr. Steve Byrum, President, Judgment Index USA, are benefiting a large number of organizations such as the Krystal Corporation, TNBC/BS, Hermann Memorial Healthcare System, NCCER (National Center for Construction Education and Research) & the Yale School of Business Management.
The WorkRx Group located in Columbus, Ohio is lead by Dr. Kenneth Mitchell. This research and development group specializes in assisting employers reduce lost time. Dr. Mitchell’s research suggests that many individuals on a disability claim experience the “Motivation Paradox”. That is, they have the potential and interest in returning to work, but appear to be poorly motivated. They may be considered a malinger or faker, but in fact they are stuck, perhaps fearful of an attempt a return to work. The JI-WorkRx strategic partnership offers employers a reliable and valid tool to define the resources and the best pathway to return to work for those complicated cases caught in the motivation paradox.
Dr. Mitchell’s work and that of Dr. Steve Byrum will calibrate the Motivation Paradox, i.e. measuring the strengths and weakness of various motivational indicators determining the likelihood of an employee returning to work in a safe and timely manner. Roger Wall, CMO for Judgment Index USA said, “This relationship will be good for our respective client companies and prospects, but most importantly the employee trying to get back to work to secure his or her financial future”.
