Workers’ Compensation: Cost-Effective Insurance Carrier Management Strategies To Boost Your Bottom Line

About This Course:
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.
