SUNZ Launches Pre-Underwriting Site Visit Program to Help PEOs
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., July 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — SUNZ Insurance Company recently announced a new site visit program to enhance the accuracy of reporting and underwriting before a policy is issued. The program, benefiting Professional Employer Organizations (PEOs) and their end clients, will continue the SUNZ partnership-focused model of providing workers’ compensation policies with hands-on client support.
On-site visits allow SUNZ to share possible deficiencies in safety and compliance so that PEOs and their clients can address and correct issues, enforcing a much safer work environment, and greatly reducing risk and the potential loss due to on-the-job accidents.
Scott Robertson, President of SUNZ, said, “The key words here are partnership-focused and support. We are actively watching the marketplace and talking to our PEO clients while learning more and more about how they operate their businesses in today’s economic climate. What we now know is that in the past year many clients have had to reduce staff in the risk management department. As a result, SUNZ has decided to expand its support services to help provide a more comprehensive risk management program, reducing the risk and potential losses associated with claims. It’s a win-win for the client, the PEO and for SUNZ.”
C.J. Howard of Howard Leasing in Bradenton, a client of SUNZ, said, “Having SUNZ Insurance provide that vital role in directly handling site visits for prospective clients and acting as our Loss Control Agent during the pre-underwriting process has been an effective program, opening a line of communication between all three organizations and creating a better relationship among all parties. It’s efficient and SUNZ is an expert at spotting potential on-site work negligence.”
SUNZ has rolled out the new pre-underwriting site visit program as a soft launch with their most active PEO clients. They are now embarking on making this program available to all their clients who wish to engage in a stronger partnership while further reducing risk and liabilities.
SUNZ Insurance provides workers’ compensation tailored specifically for (PEOs), staffing companies and large companies. Their continued growth is through a consultative approach for every client they work with and policy they underwrite. With a combined 120+ years of experience in the industry, SUNZ focuses on claims management and return to work programs to help employers improve the performance of their workers’ compensation program.
