The mlcoa difference
Health benefits of good work
At mlcoa, we passionately believe in the role that “good work” plays in people’s health and wellbeing. Good work is engaging, fair and respectful, as well as being safe and healthy.
The evidence is in: studies continue to show that the longer someone has off work, the less chance they have of ever returning. Usually, waiting for recovery delays recovery, and can lead to isolation, depression and poorer health.
On the flipside, there are almost countless upsides to an early, supported return to work. Those who go back to work will often benefit because they:
- Recover from injury or illness sooner than those who don’t
- Maintain a level of mental and physical health
- Make a positive contribution to society
- Learn new skills and gain experience
- Have financial freedom
- Connect and socialise with people and the community
At mlcoa, we live and breathe the benefits of good work. We promote an understanding of the health benefits of good work among our staff, clients and customers, as well as the broader community through the services we deliver.
We were one of the first signatories among medico-legal providers to the Consensus Statement on the Health Benefits of Good Work. In this, we show our commitment to creating safe and healthy workplaces, and highlight our belief that good work can play a central role in contributing to people’s health and wellbeing.
