Hiring A Workers Comp Consultant – Reminders
Hiring A workers comp consultant or actually any consultant generates quite a few questions.
The full list is here. I decided to split up the list into two posts.
- Does the consultant also sell the product?
- What licenses does the consultant possess?
- What designations does the consultant have in their background?
- How well does the consultant company pay their bills and handle their credit?
- Does the consultant have good and varied references?
- Operates with a code of ethics – Every license issued and designation afforded to a consultant requires a set of rules that the consultant must adhere to or they will lose that license of designation.
- Ensures trust – the designations or licenses give the buyer a place to complain about the consultant’s services.
- Dedication – shows that the consultant has passed numerous exams.
A very economical way to check to see if a consultant has a good credit rating is by checking to see if they:
- Have a Dun and Bradstreet number. (Check dnb.com) Almost all companies are required to have one if they bid on a government contract or apply for business credit.
- Have a good D&B credit rating
If the consultant gives you a list of references,, check to make sure that they companies are ones that do not center around one area. The references should indicate a variety of companies and governmental entities.
