UniqueHR Partners with Zurich North America for Workers’ Compensation Insurance Policy

UniqueHR, a leading Professional Employer Organization (PEO), announced today that it has partnered with top-rated insurance carrier Zurich North America to provide workers’ compensation coverage for its client company employees effective May 1, 2015.

 “Each year we evaluate many different programs and products that will best serve our clients, one such product is workers’ compensation insurance. Much was learned during this evaluation process related to coverage–financial stability, serviceability, local, state and national coverage, and how the carriers handle injured workers, lost time and medical payments,” said Chris Bradford, Vice President of Underwriting, UniqueHR.

“This partnership reinforces our goal to always offer best-in-class products and services to our clients,” said Garry Bradford, CEO and President, UniqueHR. Zurich is the largest workers’ compensation carrier in the world and we have worked alongside of them for years via the PEO Workers’ Compensation Risk Management Certification Institute (CI), a national best practices program that exceeds workers’ compensation carriers underwriting standards for coverage. This partnership makes sense on many levels.”

UniqueHR encourages clients to be proactive regarding safety and the management of workplace injuries. Employers can limit loss by implementing improved hiring procedures, safe work practices, safety training and return-to-work programs.

In addition to risk management, UniqueHR also enables clients to cost-effectively outsource the management of human resources, employee benefits and payroll.

What is a PEO?

 Professional Employer Organizations (PEOs) enable clients to cost-effectively outsource the management of human resources, employee benefits, payroll and workers’ compensation. PEO clients focus on their core competencies to maintain and grow their bottom line.
