Assessment of your work abilities

Why assess your work abilities?

Before you decide if you are ready to return to your job or if or what accommodations you need to stay working, it helps to have a good understanding of your abilities. Then you can compare abilities to the demands and duties of your job or a new job. By systematically assessing your skills or having a professional determine them, you can identify the challenges you may face when you go back to work, ideas for job accommodations to improve your work ability or re-assure yourself that you are still able to do your work.
