The Transitions is a movement to help the workers’ compensation industry think strategically about how to handle the influx and outflux of talent over the coming decade.
The Transitions started as a diverse panel of individuals for an October 2020 National Workers’ Compensation & Disability conference session. However, the more these individuals planned the session, the more they became convinced that this conversation should not be a one-time “presentation.” Instead, it evolved into an ongoing mission to facilitate a meaningful dialogue within the industry and within companies on how to create an orderly transition that captures and institutionalizes the knowledge that is leaving while embracing the vision that is entering. The Transitions founders are a multi-generational, purpose-driven group of industry veterans and emerging leaders with a big vision and a passion for progress.
The goal is to encourage the creation of a “transition” plan for every stakeholder in workers’ compensation. Whether the transition is out or up / across, creating a plan that includes conscious consideration of overall strategy and specific tactics is a major key to success. Founders of The Transitions represent a variety of generations, roles, life/business experience, and perspectives and led a webinar in 2021 on their primary subject of interest. The guests invited to each roundtable discussion represented all geographic areas, personal demographics, roles and experience level imaginable.
Perhaps most importantly, each webinar had a “handout” that provides each attendee the opportunity to take their own notes and create their own action plan. At the conclusion of the webinar series, attendees will have an entire “notebook” of handouts that can be used to guide the execution of their developed plan.
