Save On Workers Comp Premiums With An Updated Website
Keeping your company’s website up to date is one of the best ways to save on Workers Comp premiums increase your business no matter the size. One of the first background materials we request from clients is their website address(es).
Why? One of the first places that insurance carrier premium auditors examine for information about an employer is their website. The auditor searches for certain areas in the webpages such as type of products produced; locations; Board of Directors, owners; company-specific or audit-specific information.
If your website says that you manufacture widgets and your company has not produced those for many years, then your website should be updated with that information. Your website can be thought of as a sales brochure. Your website is not the place for out-of-date information.
We came across an employer that was disputing their audit in California. They produced ink dyes a few years ago, but then changed to manufacturing a type of sealant. The auditor became confused when he/she looked at their website. The result was being assessed a larger premium audit bill.
With our help, the situation was cleared up after it was discovered that their website even had a place to order the old ink dyes still active.
This happens more often when the website matches the company less and less each year. One area to watch is that your Google profile links to an active but unlisted website. Googling your company may show many links to a website you quit using long ago.
We actually switched blog sites in 2010. Google still lists some of the old blog and website in their index from 2007.
