Professional Help with Your Workers’ Compensation Plan in Minnesota
One of the biggest concerns with Minnesota businesses today is operating costs, and workers compensation premiums can be a major expense. However, many companies adopt the strategy of accepting bids for their insurance and ultimately go with the lowest price. This can be a huge mistake for a number of reasons.
Let’s take the case of fictional company ABC to demonstrate.
Company ABC was a medium sized electronics manufacturing company with a growing base of customers and recently they expanded into other parts of the Midwest. The President, David G, was very concerned about costs and tried his best to run a lean company. In fact, he had many measures in place to ensure high quality and recently made major changes which greatly increased profits for the previous quarter.
To maintain efficiency, he decided to use the lowest workman’s comp premiums possible. To David, this seemed like the most efficient strategy at the time. However, David made the same mistakes many businesses owners make by assuming the lowest premiums was the most important factor. He failed to realize that he had two employees currently off work and they were preparing lawsuits against the company. This resulted in a lot of unnecessary legal costs, which could have been avoided if his HR director had handled matters differently.
After reaching a settlement with the employees, David met a man at a local donut shop, and they talked about workers’ comp issues. The man was a CWCA (Certified Work Comp Advisor) and showed David all the benefits his program had to offer. David decided to try it and within six months, lost time accidents had dropped off substantially because he now had the benefits of professional help. Let’s talk about workman compensation, what it is and the benefits you can receive from a CWCA at Insurance Brokers of MN.
