March Modness - Call the Right Play!


March Modness


DATE: Thursday, March 22nd: Session runs from 8:00 to 10:30 am

Registration starts at 7:30 am.       




To win the game, you need to call the right plays. But what are the right plays and how do you run them? The answer is found in good coaching. When it comes to your experience modification factor, each year, the tradition continues as the NCCI calculates your mod which is then applied to your workers’ compensation premium, bringing either the thrill of victory or agony of defeat. Frustration is found in the belief by many employers that they have no control over this “modness.” But that belief is a myth.

In the March Excelleration™ on Thursday, March 22nd, we have assembled a great coaching staff to bring greater understanding to employers on how to control workers’ compensation cost through experience mod management. Call the right plays!
