Risk Management Workshop

Risk Management Workshop

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. 

We are excited to come back together again, in-person, after having a virtual event in 2021. Attendees can expect to learn from risk management experts, get tips from leaders in the industry, and take home ideas to employ back in the office right away, helping to improve their risk management practices.

  • PEO owners
  • PEO senior managers with risk management responsibility
  • Insurance and risk management service providers to the PEO industry
