icare’s CASE Awards have become a hallmark for the industry, celebrating the individuals and teams who have gone above and beyond to provide better outcomes for injured workers and businesses.
Rewarding innovation, leadership and excellence
“This year’s group of finalists exemplify what the CASE Awards are all about. Each finalist has achieved a significant improvement for their customers or for the workers compensation industry as a whole,” Mr Nagle said.
“The finalists we have selected include individuals and teams who have demonstrated innovative approaches to physical recovery and risk identification, holistic workplace rehabilitation services and outstanding examples of human-centered leadership and cross-agency collaboration."
Going above and beyond
“These achievements prove what we in the industry already know, but that is often overlooked – that there are phenomenal case managers, providers and brokers across the scheme who are regularly going above and beyond to deliver the best possible outcomes for their customers and improve NSW’s workers compensation industry."
“The CASE Awards continue to evolve to recognise how dynamic our industry is. Now in its fourth year, the stories, innovation and the dedication to excellence is more evident now than ever before."
Be part of the celebration
Awards will be presented to this year’s winners at the 4th Annual Care and Service Excellence Awards (CASE Awards) Gala Dinner on Tuesday 13 November at the International Convention Centre (ICC) Sydney.
Claims management partners, providers, workers compensation brokers and NSW employers are invited to attend.
