The Job Retention and Rehabilitation Pilot, a two-year trial designed to test three alternative interventions in the United Kingdom, aimed to increase the return-to-work rate of those out of work sick for six weeks or more. Participants were randomly assigned to one of four groups: a health intervention, a workplace intervention, a combined (workplace and health) intervention, or the control group. Findings show that the interventions did not have an impact on any of the three treatment groups. The most likely reasons were because the interventions did not meet their needs fully; some of the primary reasons for returning to work, such as concerns about money or job tenure, were outside the control of the service providers; and service providers faced barriers from employers and general practitioners that reduced the probability of being able to gain a successful return to work.
