EMPLOYERS Named Employees Compensation Service of Alternative by Illinois Lodge & Lodging Affiliation

EMPLOYERS®, America’s Small Business Insurance Specialist®, has been named the Preferred Employee Compensation Agency by the Illinois Hotel & Lodging Association (IHLA). The alliance offers IHLA members savings as well as a range of benefits, coverage, resources and tools that make insurance more affordable and easier to manage.

EMPLOYERS not only offers eligible members a 5 percent (5%) credit on the premiums of their employee compensation insurance, but also offers IHLA members more than 100 years of experience in working with hospitality companies. EMPLOYER guidance and services help small businesses implement risk management programs that are designed to keep employees safe, reduce costs and increase profitability. Policyholders can access Loss Control Connection®, a web-based loss control platform that combines security and loss control information with a unique suite of software programs to help manage risk and reduce losses.

“At a time when hotels are preparing to recover from the devastating pandemic, the safety and wellbeing of our employees remains a top priority,” said Michael Jacobson, president and CEO of the Illinois Hotel & Lodging Association. “Our new alliance with EMPLOYERS helps IHLA to provide our members with the necessary resources. At the same time, hoteliers are seeing rising costs across the board, and this collaboration is helping to generate significant savings in employee compensation insurance coverage, which is going to go a long way in helping hotels weather the current climate and seek profitability again. ”

“EMPLOYERS is committed to meeting the unique needs of the hospitality industry, which is one of our largest businesses,” said Wayne Hilston, Vice President Sales – Programs & Payroll Alliances at EMPLOYERS. “The best right to compensation is the one that never exists, and the safety of employees in the workplace is one of our top priorities. Unfortunately, workplace injuries still sometimes occur and our claims adjusters can help control claims costs by working directly with injured workers and doctors. Just like IHLA’s commitment to its members, our main focus is on providing policyholders as well as helpful information and tools in order to successfully operate and expand their business. We are excited to work with IHLA to provide valuable coverage and quality services to its eligible members. ”
