Swift Currie Partners Speaking at 17th Annual Workers' Compensation ExecuSummit

Mohegan Sun Convention Center & Hotel

On Jan. 28, Swift Currie partners Martine Cumbermack and Rusty Watts are presenting "Diversity's Impact on Claims Handling, Claims Results and the Bottom Line" at the 17th annual Workers' Compensation ExecuSummit in Uncasville, Connecticut.

Today's workforce is more diverse than ever — older workers remain on the job longer and multilingual and other culturally diverse workers pose challenges and opportunities for claims professionals. Diversity can impact why claims are filed, how claims are managed and the end result. Additionally, diversity, inclusion and unconscious bias play roles before an injury, during claim management and can drive trial outcomes and resolution.

To help mitigate these challenges, Cumbermack and Watts will provide strategies to effectively communicate with the worker, employer and claims handlers, as well as discuss why diversity and inclusion are important in the claims management business.

Attendees with learn how diversity and inclusion can benefit employers' and insurers' bottom line, how to analyze diversity's impact on how claims are managed and how to address diversity's bearing during a hearing or trial and the resolution of a claim.

The ExecuSummit is an education event designed for workers' compensation insurance professionals. The summit is a unique opportunity to provoke strategic thinking, offer new insight, open new channels of information and provide opportunities to meet  and exchange ideas with peers, key industry executives and leaders.

The full summit will be held from Jan. 28-29 at the Mohegan Sun Convention Center & Hotel.
