Underwriters play the crucial role of evaluating insurance applications and determining how much risk to injury and illness is involved as well as how much an applicant will pay in premiums. It is a job that requires a combination of strong analytical and interpersonal skills.

Risk Management

Risk Advisors evaluate workplace hazards and analyze jobs and tasks to determine risks and risk levels. They will also train employees on proper safety procedures and equipment use to minimize the risk of injury.

Claims Management

Claims management is an excellent field offering numerous career opportunities. Our claims experts help injured or ill employees during what can be difficult times in their lives. They are key to allowing us to live by getting injured or ill employees “back to work and back to life”.
