Nancy Germond’s new book, Workers Compensation in Two Hours: The Business Owner’s Guide to an Exceptional Workers Compensation Program, now available

September 20, 2021 – Glendale, AZ

Workers’ compensation program management can be a struggle for small-to-medium sized business owners. From finding the right agent to preventing or promptly reporting employee injuries, main street business owners and managers struggle with rising workers’ compensation costs and imperfect safety programs. 

Workers’ Compensation in Two Hours: The Business Owner’s Guide to an Exceptional Workers Compensation Program takes managers step by step through the challenges associated with workers’ compensation management. “For business owners who don’t have a chief financial officer or risk manager to rely on, managing your insurance purchase and building a strong workers compensation program can be challenging,” says the author, Nancy Germond, who has over three decades of claims handling and risk management expertise. 

Chapter by chapter, this book helps the reader understand the work comp policy, determine how to choose an agent, implement better hiring practices, and discover how to respond when workers’ injuries don’t resolve. Some practical tips and examples help business owners understand the insurance jargon they may hear, as well as help them survive the inevitable premium audit they face each year. 

With insurance prices rising and workers facing increasing health challenges which may delay return to work, this book helps business owners improve the management of a complicated and often misunderstood process. 

A chapter on the emerging risks employers face in today’s turbulent world is a bonus to help business owners develop a strategy for better management of their enterprise risk management program. 

Here’s what author and insurance expert Bill Wilson said about this book.

“Nancy Germond has published a practical, easy to understand guide for small business owners and those responsible for insurance and risk management decisions at larger businesses. From the initial two-page case study that illustrates what is at stake when failing to proactively manage or oversee the business’s workers compensation program to the significant amount of statistical support for her recommended practices, this book provides a sound foundation for minimizing risk of injury to valued employees.” 

This book is available through Amazon and at local bookstores. The Amazon link follows.
