NAPEO's Risk Management Workshop has evolved into the largest gathering of PEO risk management professionals, carriers, brokers, and agents. Nowhere else will you find the PEO industry's top risk managers, key insurance executives, regulatory experts, and policy makers gathered for such an in depth look at PEOs and workers' compensation. For 2013, attendees will hear about what is top of mind to all PEOs, healthcare. We'll examine all aspects of the issue, both from a 30,000 foot perspective and then a drill-down on how this will impact PEOs. Attendees will also hear from risk management experts, get tips from leaders in the industry, and take home ideas you can employ back in your office immediately to improve your risk management practices. The workshop now features hands-on breakout sessions allowing participants to focus their attention on specific topics in the areas of the risk management consultant, EPLI, experience ratings, and alternative staffing arrangements. You will not want to miss this workshop if you are PEO owner or risk management professional!
