Workers’ Compensation: Cost-Effective Insurance Carrier Management Strategies To Boost Your Bottom Line
|Date / Time:
Workers’ compensation has a significant impact on your company’s bottom line and can negatively impact overall productivity of your organization. Therefore, it’s critical that your workers’ compensation program adequately addresses the areas that can lead to potential problems and adversely impact costs.
One of the most important decisions you’ll make with regard to reigning in costs associated with workers’ compensation claims lies in choosing a workers’ compensation insurance carrier with a focus on meeting your needs in a cost-effective and efficient manner.
Most workers’ compensation policy renewal dates occur between September 1 and January 1 of each year, so now is the perfect time to examine how costs are affected by how your workers’ compensation insurer views its ability to manage injuries and workers' compensation costs.
Join us for an in-depth webinar when Don Dressler of Don Dressler Consulting will tell you exactly how to set up the appropriate metrics to ensure that your insurance carrier is best serving the organization in managing the workers’ compensation cases while keeping your costs down.
Mr. Dressler will explain the importance of the types of services your workers’ compensation carrier should be providing, such as loss control services to identify hazards and prevent injuries, as well as how having a cooperative relationship with the claims adjuster can be a big win for employers.
- Evaluate when workers’ compensation insurance generally applies

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
