Boise, ID, September 03, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Zurich, workers’ compensation insurance provider and Employers Resource, one of America’s largest national Professional Employer Organizations (PEO) have collaborated to create a Workers’ Compensation Team for qualified employers. Insurance coverages are underwritten by individual member companies of Zurich North America, including Zurich American Insurance Company, well known in the business community.
Employers Resource’s clients will have the new opportunity to win business when a better rating is required. Margo Wyman, National Risk and Workers’ Comp Manager at Employers Resource, says, “Many PEOs can’t write clients nationwide because their carriers are limited to the states in which they are licensed. American Zurich Insurance Co. is licensed to write in all states (excluding four which are monopolistic).”
“As a core value, we aim to create long-term relationships not only with our carriers, but with our clients (many over 25 years) as well,” says George Gersema, CEO of Employers Resource. “In Zurich, we have found an insurance provider who is ‘good to ride the river with.’ They have a scalable platform to meet the longer-term needs of our company.”
This new relationship is significant considering workers’ compensation is the lifeblood of PEO companies and Employers Resource’s previous carrier relationship lasted over 15 years. The solid reputation Employers Resource has spent the last 30 years building is now strengthened by the Zurich name. Zurich has been in operation in US for over 100 years.
“It is Zurich’s mission to help our customers understand and protect themselves from risk,” said Marc Bashore, Sr Casualty Underwriter in Zurich’s Global Corporate PEO Underwriting Division. “Our collaboration with Employers Resource reflects Zurich’s commitment to the PEO industry by providing insurance solutions to qualified PEOs that demand top shelf Workers’ Compensation services and carrier stability.”
As both companies bring experience, stability, and a commitment to client service excellence, it’s more than a safe bet that the collaboration will live up to its potential for employers.
