Work Rehab continues its expansion south
Work Rehab continues its expansion south, following the successful opening of offices in Wollongong and Canberra in 2018. In January 2019 Work Rehab will be opening its first office in Victoria (stay tuned). This is part of its strategic growth plan to be a truly national business. The core principles of making sure that people are at the centre of our work (staff and clients), engaging experienced staff and taking a holistic approach to what we do remain so important to Work Rehab. They are also our points of difference. We look forward to working with existing and new clients and referrers in 2019!
