GettingHired has secured $3m of additional investment capital to fund continued growth of the disability employment portal in the USA as well as final development and launch of FastTrackRTW, a new return to work initiative supporting the long term disability and workers’ compensation insurance verticals.
The investments were made by Zenith Insurance Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Zenith National Insurance Corp, Kamine Development Corp and Fisher Capital Corp.
Stanley Zax, chairman and president of Zenith, said: We are excited about this innovative approach to managing the return to work challenge, and look forward to using the FastTrackRTW product as a unique resource in helping our injured workers find productive work.”
FastTrackRTW incorporates many of the features of the existing GettingHired.com employment and social networking portal and adds a robust injured worker and caseworker platform, as well as a specialised enhancement to GettingHired.com’s RightMatch technology.
Jim Fisher, managing member of Fisher Capital, said: FastTrackRTW program will be able to leverage the success of the GettingHired.com platform, which has already seen explosive growth in its first year of connecting people with disabilities to employers committed to hiring people with disabilities, and will be a significant aid in helping more people return to a productive work life after experiencing an injury or illness within the LTD and Workers’ Compensation arenas.
