General Employment Enterprises's subsidiary TRIAD joins Bureau of Workers' Compensation programme
Deborah Santora-Tuohy, president of TRIAD Staffing, stated, "TRIAD is committed to safety and loss prevention for its employees and its clients' employees. As a part of this retro program, Spooner will provide energetic and effective claims cost control including obtaining, where appropriate, independent medical exams, negotiate settlements with claimants' attorneys, assist the Company to identify temporary return to work assignments for claimants and recommend claims management actions. We have not been able to increase billing rates due to the competitive nature of our clients. Having this group in place will enable us to continue our great service at a reasonable price for the market."
"Spooner Incorporated set the standard for managing workers' compensation in 1975. Our proactive philosophy and best practices focus on preventing excessive compensation and medical costs and assisting employees in early, healthy return to work," commented Andy Lembach, VP of Business Development of Spooner, Inc.
Andrew Norstrud, chief executive officer of General Employment, commented, "We look forward to TRIAD joining the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation group and seeing a significant reduction in our workers' compensation cost, starting July 1, 2014. This is a great opportunity to get rebates back from the state which will allow us to continue to provide the service our customers expect, without having to significantly increase our prices in 2015. We are working hard to clean up our current issues related to cost and create a solid foundation that will allow us to return to profitability as we implement our growth strategies."
