In the words of the client
As our company expanded, we needed a higher level of professionalism from our risk services partner. Scott was the right choice for our company’s size and risk services needs. Scott blends the breadth of services and deep expertise required for sophisticated accounts with the personal touch of a local, smaller firm. With their help, we have turned around our risk avoidance program and have achieved significantly improved outcomes.
Scott understands our business…the strengths and weaknesses of our people, facilities and operations. They provide valuable education and take a leadership role in addressing our risk needs.
We’re in the process of building a culture of and brand of health and wellness at Bassett. Scott’s partnership and expertise is the foundation of our success.
Thanks to Scott’s assistance with our workers’ compensation claims, we have great confidence that we are managing each incident toward the best possible outcome. They have proven to be an excellent resource in improving our proactive handling of these cases.
