IPAR retains 3 Star Rating for second consecutive quarter

IPAR-Golden-Stars-with-Ribbon-MOO15040-aIn the latest release of Star Ratings by the Victorian WorkCover Authority (VWA) IPAR has once again been awarded the highest possible 3 Star Rating for original employer services. We are one of only two providers (out of a total of 27) in Victoria to receive the top award, which is an independent measure of Return to Work performance.

This excellent result is particularly pleasing considering we have retained the 3 Star Rating for two consecutive quarters. Also noteworthy is that the 3 Star result was contributed to by all of IPAR’s 9 Victorian branches, from Mildura to Morwell and all key regions in between.

IPAR’s score is 13% above the scheme median result. This means that for every 100 referrals IPAR commenced, we returned 13 more people back to full time work than the scheme median – a real testament to the dedication of our people in achieving return to work outcomes.

ARPA Victoria Award Winner!

IPAR consultant Thi Tran was named the winner of the Best New Starter – New Employer Services category at the ARPA Victoria Excellence in Workplace Rehabilitation Awards 2014 on Friday night.

Thi was one of three finalists in the category, which IPAR has now won three out of the last four years (2011, 2012 and 2014).

Upon commencing with IPAR, Thi was given a particularly challenging portfolio with the majority of her job seeking clients experiencing multiple barriers to return to work. Despite being new to the industry, Thi utilised her risk management training, her strong problem-solving skills and consulted with her Psychologist-peers, to expertly handle situations and result in clients receiving timely and appropriate support and treatment.

Thi’s ability to assess an individual’s level of health literacy, language skills, and education during their initial meetings enables her to tailor her approach appropriately, and quickly build rapport and generate trust. Her influencing skills are superior, motivating clients to return to work and gaining treater support for employment goals.

Congratulations to Thi on this well deserved award and to all IPAR finalists on the night.

IPAR a finalist in the 2014 BRW / GE Capital Momentum Mid-Market Awards

IPAR was yesterday named as a finalist in the BRW GE Capital Momentum Awards 2014, in the best Mid-Market Business category.

The BRW GE Capital Momentum Awards are Australia’s only awards for top Mid-Market companies, recognising high performance in revenue, profit and employee growth, as well as demonstrated innovation and industry leadership.

As stated in the BRW announcement “finalists in this year’s $10 million-$50 million revenue category are as varied as they are remarkable. They display a tenacity and determination to lead their respective category.”

“On the face of it, our four finalists this year – forex broker Pepperstone, workplace rehabilitation services provider IPAR, online wine merchant Vinomofo and schnitzel franchise Schnitz – have little in common… Yet they are all typical of mid-market players. They take full advantage of new opportunities for growth and punch well above their weight – key traits of this sector.”

Winners will be announced August 28, 2014 at the event to be held at the MCA in Sydney.

IPAR listed in 2013 BRW Fast 100

 

We are delighted to announce that IPAR has been listed in the 2013 BRW Fast 100, coming in at position 40. This is the third consecutive year that our business has made the annual list and is our highest ranking yet (following number 51 in 2011 and number 60 in 2012).

This result is made even more impressive due to the fact that only a small number of businesses have been able to make the list for three consecutive years, as it becomes harder to continue rapid growth the larger a business becomes.

David Sagar, IPAR Managing Director, believes the result is a testimony to the hard work and dedication of the IPAR team. “I really want to thank our staff for the amazing contribution they have made toward making this possible and helping to continue the ongoing success and growth of our business.”
