BWC Small & Minority Business Webinar
BWC held its first annual small and minority business webinar in early 2022. Too often, small and minority businesses lack the access to valuable resources and information. You could be missing out on thousands of dollars for your business’ needs, and we are here to help! The webinar was specifically designed with your business interests and needs in mind. We understand that as a small or minority business you wear multiple hats every day and therefore workers’ compensation may not always be on your mind. This short one-hour presentation will give you valuable workers’ compensation information you need to continue thriving in today’s environment.
There are rebates, programs, and grants that your company may be eligible for. During this webinar, you will learn more about:
• BWC rating system,
• Rebate programs,
• Safety grants,
• The life cycle of claim
You will also find out how to connect with your assigned BWC Employer Service Specialist (ESS) who is here to assist you with all your workers’ compensation questions.
