Employment best practices

Employees can be one of your most valuable allies in reducing risk and maintaining a safe business environment.  When you hire the right people, you protect your reputation and bottom line.  That’s why Travelers offers useful tools to help you through the hiring process.


After the hire

The wrong person for a job can cost your company money. According to the Small Business Administration, for every $1 invested in personnel screening, $5 to $16 is saved in reduced absenteeism, improved productivity, lower turnover, safer working environments, reduced insurance premiums and decreased employer liability. Before you decide which person to hire, you need to be sure he or she has the knowledge, skills, abilities and characteristics for a ‘good’ hiring decision.

Thorough screening and selection practices alone do not guarantee that an employee will be a successful, injury-free employee on the job, but it is a good start. It’s important that these practices are only a part of a broader loss prevention program. Learn more about hiring best practices.
