IPAR again listed in BRW Fast 100

We are delighted to announce that for the second year running IPAR has been listed in the Business Review Weekly (BRW) Fast 100 List. The BRW Fast 100 ranks Australia’s fastest growing companies, based on their average growth rate over the previous three years.

In the 2012 list announcement, IPAR has come in at position 60, with the same average growth rate that saw us listed in the 2011 Fast 100. In order to qualify for the list this year, the minimum average growth rate was 39%, the highest it has ever been.

“This achievement is a direct result of the hard work and dedication shown by our staff,” says IPAR Managing Director, David Sagar.

“I am immensely proud that we continue to deliver the very best outcomes for our customers, which sees them continue to use our services again and again.”

IPAR’s ‘Perfect Score’ in Worksafe Star Ratings

In the June 2012 Worksafe Star Ratings release IPAR achieved a ‘perfect score’ of 6 STARS – the highest score possible.

The 6 Stars are made up of a 3 Star Rating for both OES (same employer RTW) and a 3 Star Rating for NES (new employer RTW).

IPAR Managing Director, David Sagar, says:

“We couldn’t be more delighted with these results. To be one of only 2 out of 32 providers to achieve 3 stars for OES and one of only 4 out of 24 to achieve 3 stars for NES is truly a testament to the passion with which our people approach their work and their devotion to achieving RTW outcomes.”

“To think also that when our case volume is excluded, the schemes RTW rates reduces makes our out-performance compared to the scheme average all the more credible.”

IPAR Awarded Top Marks for Same Employer RTW by Worksafe

IPAR are delighted to announce that in the most recent release of OR provider Star Rating results, IPAR has earned a 3 Star Rating (the highest possible) for same employer services. We are one of only 3, 3 Star providers (out of 33) in Victoria. To the best of our knowledge this is the only independent measure of RTW performance in Australia.

IPAR’s Managing Director, David Sagar, emphasises that the most pleasing aspect of being recognised in this way is that “it is an acknowledgement of the hard work done by all our team, in their relentless focus on achieveing RTW outcomes for our customers. Durable and safe RTW is in everyone’s best interests. In particular the evidence is now so strong that RTW is in the best interests of injured workers and significantly, positively impacts not only upon recovery from their injury but their general health .”

IPAR Awarded BRW Fast 100 Status

IPAR’s outstanding growth was recognised when it made the BRW Magazine’s Fast 100 List for 2011 – coming in at position 51. The BRW Fast 100 list ranks Australia’s fastest growing public and private, small and medium businesses, and is based on growth rates over the previous three years.

IPAR’s Managing Director, David Sagar, emphasises that the most gratifying aspect of being recognised in the BRW Fast 100 List is not so much the growth itself, but more what he believes it says about the quality of the service IPAR provides.

It’s our belief that the single strongest contributor to growing our business is how well we deliver services  for our customers – if they like what we do they will keep coming back, and new customers will be drawn to our offering through word-of-mouth. We think our growth rates are an indicator of customer satisfaction.”
