Reducing expense load is crucial for businesses, and a significant portion is likely inside your risk management program. Beyond the price of your insurance and out-of-pocket deductibles, unbudgeted claims costs erode your financial position.
Here's how it works:
Claims cause business disruption, including productivity gaps, additional hiring and training expenses, and brand/reputational damage to your organization. Unfortunately, your insurance carrier won't cover these expenses.
Your profit margin absorbs them.
Here are three steps to reduce their unwanted impact:
- Identify the total amount of your claims expenditures, including your out-of-pocket expenses AND the indirect costs of those incidents. Knowing current and historical trends is a critical first step in creating a workable plan.
- Develop a long-term strategy to mitigate the impact of claims. You'll need to work with a knowledgeable broker to deploy specialty resources and programs designed to lower the frequency and severity of claim events inside your business.
- Quantify the efficacy of your program. Attacking these expenditures requires keeping a score on the results. You'll want to work with a broker who can measure precisely how well a program is working to improve your financial position.
