What Our Clients Have to Say About Us

“As a Nurse Case Manager, I find the work conditioning program at Job Ready Services to be the GOLD STANDARD. Excellent communication from the staff regarding progression or lack of progression of the injured worker is provided on a regular basis and this has led to great success with return to work or identification of injuries that will not allow them to return to their previous work assignment. The staff is trained in X-RTS methods for doing Functional Capacity Evaluations which is extremely helpful. Excellent staff, easy referral process, and great source of communication!”

“We partnered with Job Ready Services in 2015 to establish the job analysis for all of our major jobs groups and implement Work Steps pre-employment testing at all of our locations.  This program has allowed us to improve a candidate’s chances of success by determining whether or not they can safely perform the essential functions of the position.  Over the past few years, we have realized a reduction in injuries and a significant decrease in our MOD rate.  We believe Job Ready Services has been a key component of our success as we strive to provide a safe and healthy working environment for the Coastal Crew.”
