Next to employee wages, insurance is the 2nd greatest expense for business and corporations.

HIGH insurance costs continue to CUT into profits and steal funds away from hardworking employees needing a much-deserved pay raise.

This time of year, CEO’s and CFO’s are riddled with anxiety about the ever-increasing insurance costs.
