Rising workers’ compensation costs are among staffing firm owners’ greatest concerns, and—with double-digit rate increases becoming more common—controlling such costs is among their top priorities. An ASA committee has developed recommended best practices for reducing workers’ compensation costs.
These best practices cover several operational areas, including staffing firm operational philosophy; candidate screening, evaluation, and management; client selection, evaluation, and management; client contracts; injury prevention and protocols; claims management; modified duty or return-to-work programs; pricing methodology and financial metrics; classification codes; legal information; and relationships with insurance carriers, brokers, and risk management consultants.
ASA members can review the new best practices for reducing workers’ compensation costs at americanstaffing.net.

Our research shows that the average firm spends around five hours logging in and out of systems to source candidates to fill one job. We’re excited to announce the next level in candidate sourcing: CareerBuilder Talent Discovery, a platform that has everything in one place.
