Christine Tarabay
Strategic Industry Solutions

After working in the industry for a few years, Christine Tarabay recognised a need in the market for a commercially-focused and outcome-based boutique rehabilitation provider in Sydney. In her experience, rehab providers tended to focus on workers’ incapacity rather than their capacity, reinforcing limitations and perpetuating negative behaviours. She wanted to break the cycle and offer positive transitions to work through cost-effective, high-quality service delivery in a commercial framework. In order to make this happen, she founded SIS.

Christine’s strengths lie in her abilities to communicate, negotiate, motivate and to align goals. Her company’s mission is to provide an uncompromised level of service to all stakeholders (insurers, doctors, specialists, employers and employees) with a transparent focus on recovery, return-to-work and successful outcomes.

A particular achievement for Christine is having SIS named on the preferred provider panel for several insurance organisations. As this is normally reserved for larger, national providers, it indicates that SIS’s achievements and results speak for themselves.

SIS offers a work environment that is flexible and recognises the varied roles women perform. In Christine’s view, women’s skills and abilities should be acknowledged, and therefore women are not only accommodated at SIS—they are promoted. The management team is comprised solely of women the majority of whom work part time. She believes that the wider marketplace should share this commitment by continuing to employ women in management, upper management and positions of significant importance and power.

In joining EWA, Christine hopes to make connections that assist all parties in creating successful business relationships. She also looks forward to meeting like-minded women, in the belief that people need to surround themselves with success in order to become even more successful.
