  • Employers who have an employee with a “tricky issue” (repeated short absences, substancevmisuse, mental illness, long term medical condition etc.)

An Enable Works OH Assessment includes:

  • An Occupational Therapist meeting with the employer/line manager for up to half an hour to understand their concerns and needs.
  • An Occupational Therapist meeting with the employee (on site, at their home or in a prearranged neutral space) for up to 2 hours. They will cover the background, their role, their current issues and its impact on their ability to perform their role and explore possible solutions.
  • A comprehensive report detailing all the issues discussed with specific recommendations for the employee and employer.
  • The report is released to the employer with the employee’s consent no later than 2 weeks after the date of the assessment

An FCE is a comprehensive, evidence-based assessment used to assess an individual’s current physical ability to perform work duties or activities. This assessment determines what job tasks an individual can perform in order to establish whether they can do their job safely, return to their workplace, or even find new employment.

A CCE is similar to a FCE, but it focuses on measuring cognitive abilities and an individual’s capacity for dealing with cognitive demands. This evaluation employs measurable, objective testing methods in order to ascertain an accurate representation of a person’s cognitive abilities. This can include measuring someone’s attention span, planning, memory, problem-solving, and executive function.
