I would really appreciate it if the members of the New York WC Forum, and visitors to this page, would request that the Board reach out to the NY Workers’ Compensation Forum as part of its plans to, ” reach out to stakeholders through several means, including face–to–face meetings, video conferences, conference calls, broad–based surveys, and email.”
Given that there are currently 929 members/stakeholders in the forum, we seem like a natural place for the BPR team to look for input.
To encourage the BPR to include our voices in the re-engineering process, I would ask that the group members e-mail the BPR Team and encourage them to include us in the dialogue. For your convenience, you can copy and paste the following message and send it to the address below:
Greetings BPR Team!
We are very excited that the Board has commenced a Business Process Re-engineering Project and look forward to implementation of process and technological improvements following the BPR Team’s recommendations.
Given the indication that the BPR team plans to “reach out to stakeholders through several means, including face–to–face meetings, video conferences, conference calls, broad–based surveys, and email” we would ask that the New York Workers’ Compensation Forum be included in that dialogue. The group’s membership is currently at 929 members/stakeholders and thus seems to be a natural place to look for suggestions for improvements.
The vision of the NY Workers Compensation Forum has always been that our collective knowledge and experience are so much more powerful than any one individual’s and the Board appears to recognize this maxim in acknowledging that, “The workers’ compensation community has many constructive, intelligent ideas for improving the system, and the Board is eager to hear them.”
As a result, we would encourage the BPR Team to reach out to the NY WC Forum’s members by posting discussions in the group!
Eagerly Anticipating the Improved Processes,
A New York Workers’ Compensation Forum Member
LET’S MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE HEARD!!!!!
