There are often many challenges in providing Redeployment services in regional NSW and interstate.
In some circumstances, the Workplace Rehabilitation Provider will need to travel vast distances to see the Injured Worker, consuming approved funds travelling to see the Worker rather than providing job seeking activities.
In addition the Workplace Rehabilitation Provider may not be a specialist in redeployment services, and may have limited knowledge of the job market in regional NSW.
Nexus Solutions has developed a technology driven framework that overcomes the issues of distance in regional NSW.
We have developed an IT network across regional NSW that enables our specialist redeployment consultants to have face to face contact with Injured Workers anywhere in regional NSW.
This technology approach provides Nexus Solutions with the ability to bring together a team of the most effective WorkCover NSW regional redeployment specialists under one roof, to deliver services to workers anywhere in regional NSW.
Using this technology Injured Workers in regional NSW can now access the level of specialist redeployment services that only Injured Workers in the city could previously obtain Redeployment is about finding the right job for the right people at the right time.

Worktrials are an important way of creating an opportunity for employment for the worker.
In a number of circumstances, after having the worker in their workplace, host employers may find that they are a valuable addition to their company, and offer them ongoing employment.
Host employers do not have to pay any wages to the worker during the WorkTrial period and they may be able to introduce a potential employee to their workplace and the role without any of the normal costs of training staff.
Where a worker incurs travel costs or needs equipment to do the job, these are paid by the WorkCover scheme to the worker. Given that the worker is on a WorkTrial, they are not deemed a worker for the purposes of the host's workers compensation insurance. If the participant were to have an injury, there would be no claim against the host employer.
After a period of being injured and unemployed, WorkTrials offer people an opportunity to be back with a company and engaging in the normal routine of work once again.
Self esteem and confidence can be re-established after undertaking a WorkTrial, and possible fears about return to work could be removed.
WorkTrials may also begin to improve fitness as people are moving around and performing daily tasks.
Time in the workplace may offer all stakeholders an opportunity to see how the person is coping in an employment environment, and provide the person with an opportunity to re-establish ties to the community.
Nexus Solutions actively obtains WorkTrials for their Job Seekers and plays an important role through the WorkTrial, delivering support to both the employer and the worker.
Nexus Solutions sees WorkTrials as an integral part of the return to work process, and has an outstanding employer network in regional NSW, ready to provide workers with an opportunity to get back into the workplace.top of page
