Industry wide staffing companies find workers' compensation insurance to be one of their most important expenses. Carriers are using stringent underwriting requirements and insuring only companies that effectively manage risk. In addition, commoditization of the staffing marketplace has lead to reduced margins, increased client expectations and the need for more legislative focus to protect the industry.
To address these growing concerns, Risk Control Group has worked with underwriters, brokers and risk managers to develop a workers' compensation safety and risk management certification program for the staffing industry.
WRC (Workers’ Compensation Risk Certification)
The Workers' Compensation and Risk Certification (WRC, pronounced "work"), publicly recognizes companies who operate at the highest levels in regards to safety and risk management. Drawing influence from the ISO family of standards, this corporate designation offers certified companies leverage in underwriting negotiations, a role in public advocacy of the industry, and a competitive advantage in the staffing marketplace.
The WRC initiative has been developed by organizations and people who understand the staffing industry and the unique challenges that staffing services face.
