The American Recovery Association (ARA) and the Harding Brooks Insurance Agency previously collaborated on a health-insurance program for members.
This week, the partnership evolved into another benefit for compliant members — preferred pricing for workers’ compensation.
“ARA is dedicated to ensuring our members can follow our high standards of safety and compliance,” ARA President Dave Kennedy said in a news release. “With the addition of preferred workers’ compensation pricing for ARA members, we are not only working to ensure the well-being of our members’ employees and families, but also helping protect their businesses from expensive lawsuits.”
ARA explained Harding Brooks will handle everything for member companies that use this new benefit. This coverage includes securing the best workers’ compensation package available by working directly with carriers to show the compliance of ARA members and negotiate lower rates.
The association added this preferred pricing is not a payroll program, and members who take advantage can continue using their own payroll system.
“It has been a pleasure to work with ARA in developing new and creative program strategies for their members and the industry as a whole,” said Mike Peplinski, vice president of Harding Brooks Insurance Agency.
“By leveraging ARA’s CCRS compliance and safety training program, we can significantly reduce the cost and burden of selecting a workers’ compensation plan for members,” Peplinski added.
To learn more about this offer as well as other ARA insurance programs including health care and life insurance, members should contact Peplinski at (315) 214-5822.
