ALFA 2012 Best of the Best Program to Spotlight

Workers compensation claims are on the rise, thanks in part to a growing trend. “We have an aging workforce and we have an aging-in-place clientele,” explains Mary Lynn Curran, VP of clinical risk consulting at Willis Group. Building on its 2008 award-winning diagnostic tool for assessing risk at senior care companies, Willis Group has created a handbook and webinar training to guide senior living field staff in how to prevent injuries as well as manage cases that do occur. The program seeks to give structure and answers in an area that can be confusing for non-experts.

“One of the needs is putting together and delivering high-quality training for our teams,” says Norm Nevins, director of human resources at Legend Senior Living, a Willis client. “To really have that subject matter expert that can deliver that for us is highly valuable.”
According to Willis, participating companies typically experience a 20 to 40 percent reduction in loss rates over the first several years.
