Approach Management Services
Administrator of WLA’s Workers’ Compensation Group Retro Program
The Washington State Department of Labor and Industries (L&I) began the Retrospective Rating Program (retro program) as a financial incentive program to assist Washington employers with reducing the cost of industrial insurance premiums. Enrollment in a retro group requires active participation on behalf of the employer in order to control costs. By keeping claim costs to a minimum, companies have the potential for a premium refund.
Refunds are awarded to companies that increase safety awareness, reduce workplace accidents and get more involved in minimizing the costs of claims that do occur. It also gives an employer the opportunity to pool the risk involved with workers' compensation in a group of like-minded, safety-conscious companies in similar industries.
WLA’s Group Retro Program, with nearly 150 hotels and restaurants participating, is administered by Approach Management Services. Approach administers seven retro groups in Washington State. Since Approach's inception in 1992, its clients have received more than $100 million in returned premiums because of Approach’s effective risk-control and claim-management techniques.
