Workers Comp Premium Savings – Keep Your Website Updated
How can workers comp premiums savings come from updating your website? One of our clients from last year had let their website sit for a few years without updating it. What happened caused me to write this article.
During a workers comp premium audit, a premium auditor pulled up a page that said they were taking on jobs in a certain field. The company had not performed this type of work for over seven years. However, the website included a whole page dedicated to a higher risk service offering than the company was presently performing for clients.
This situation popped up many times over the last few years. I wrote an article concerning updating web pages a few years ago. If one thinks of your company’s website as a calling card and brochure, then what services that you include in your website easily compares to the days gone past.
You handed out brochures and business cards that concisely listed your services. The web pages of your website , including the long-forgotten underneath pages that no one (except possibly a wily premium auditor) ever sees when looking over your products or services.
Whenever a new client signs on with us, the first place we look to see what they do has always been their website. A parallel comparison is when you look at someone’s LinkedIn after they give you their business card.
Your company website can generate workers comp premium savings. If you have an old outdated website, here is a list of people that may construe your company to be something it is not:
- Premium Auditor
- Rating Bureau agent
- Consultant (such as J&L)
- Any other party in the Workers Comp arena
J&L’s website needs updating, too. The glass houses and stones euphemism applies to us. I am sure you have seen websites that need updates. Some can be very obvious.
