How Pathway Group’s Temporary-to-Hire Model Reduces Workers’ Compensation Costs

At Pathway Group, we understand that managing workers’ compensation costs can be a significant challenge for businesses, especially in the demanding aerospace industry. We are excited to share how our temporary-to-hire service model, in partnership with Akos MD, can help your company mitigate these expenses effectively.

The Real Costs of Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ compensation claims can be costly, involving medical expenses, lost wages, and increased insurance premiums. Traditional handling of workplace injuries often leads to unnecessary emergency room visits and prolonged recovery times, adding to the overall financial burden on businesses.
