WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Workers’ compensation costs can be controlled with some effort. Join this webinar to learn more about what you can do to reel in and control your workers’ compensation costs.

Workers’ compensation cases can have a very big impact on your company’s bottom line and can negatively impact overall productivity of your organization. It’s critical that you implement a program that addresses all of the areas that can lead to potential problems and cost impacts.

Even after you have developed a good working knowledge of the workers’ comp law, establishing an effective program can be tricky. One of the most important decisions that you will make is choosing a workers’ comp insurance carrier that will meet your organization’s needs efficiently and cost effectively in real time. A cooperative relationship with the claims adjuster on a case will keep the employer informed and able to help keep costs under control, from the ongoing managing of the case to the final resolution are critical to your organization. Assuring that you have an effective carrier that has your best interest at heart, is critical.

Developing and managing an effective program requires team work of all team members-your HR, Safety, Legal, and Operations departments; the WC insurance carrier's claims and loss control staff; outside legal support; treating physicians and medical providers-to assure ongoing successful resolution of cases. And one of the key players is your WC insurance carrier. If everyone can develop a good working roadmap, it is possible to establish a program that will have a positive impact on the bottom line.
