Leading through change: workers’ compensation educational guide in times of change and transition

We’ve been listening to organisations. Many professionals with workers’ compensation responsibility are feeling overwhelmed. With increasing instability across jurisdictions and some insurance partners exiting markets altogether, many organisations feel they are losing control over their workers’ compensation program.

This increasing complexity is having a direct impact on internal resources and the bottom-line.

With decisions to be made, organisations might not know who to turn to or where to look.
