Schaumburg, Ill. (March 26, 2018) – Assurance is pleased to recognize HW Staffing Solutions as a Minimizing Risk, Maximizing Health (MRMH) Award recipient. HW Staffing Solutions is a leading provider of light industrial and professional staffing services in the Northeast. 

The MRMH Award is open to all Assurance clients that work alongside the Top 50 U.S. insurance brokerage to achieve quantifiable results in minimizing workplace risk and maximizing the health and wellbeing of employees. Clients must meet certain criteria to qualify, including a large quantifiable reduction or improvement in a variety of key areas.

HW Staffing Solutions wanted to reduce the potential for injury and lower their workers’ compensation spend. The company took a significant financial risk with a new insurance program and devoted the financial resources and operational support needed to ensure that risk paid off. Together, HW Staffing Solutions and Assurance implemented a plan to reduce claims and improve workplace safety. The plan included a Safety360 diagnostic to identify areas of focus and the resources needed for improvement, as well as a formalized employee safety handbook, incident reporting/investigation procedures, client evaluation procedures and internal training webinars.

Over a three-year period, HW Staffing Solutions experienced a 62% reduction in claim costs, 57% reduction in the frequency of employee injuries and 35% decrease in overall workers’ compensation costs. HW Staffing Solutions transformed their safety culture by helping minimize the risk of injury and getting employees back to work faster.

“HW Staffing Solutions had significant improvement in their workers’ compensation results, achieving a 65% lower loss rate than average for light industrial staffing firms,” said Kerri Quigley, Vice President at Assurance.

“We really focused on growing a safety culture within our organization. By partnering with Assurance, we accomplished that while also driving down costs,” said Ed Walsh, President at HW Staffing Solutions. 

Assurance recognized HW Staffing Solutions’ achievements at a MRMH Award presentation on Tuesday, March 6 at the client’s headquarters in Taunton, Massachusetts.
