How to Save Premium Dollars

Employee Training

Employee safety training is a fundamental element of safety. It is a quality measure as well as a regulatory standard.

APEI offers many different options on how to provide training for your employees including on-line training, regional loss control seminars, on-site APEI-led training, and APEI webinars. Not only do these trainings benefit your employees, but through APEI's premium credit program, it can save you money. Employee training allows for up to a 12% credit off the APEI portion of workers' compensation and general liability premiums at renewal.

Find more information in your loss control manual or contact Cole Cummins, your loss control manager, at ccummins@akpei.com.

Conducting Performance Reviews That Work

The anticipation of a performance review often brings about anxiety for both the employee and the evaluating manager. Anxiety may be justified because a poorly conducted review can result in more harm than good. Performance reviews should produce positive results.

Preparation is the key to a successful performance evaluation. Important to preparation is on-going communication with the employee.

A formal review may only take place once a year, but communication between an employee and his or her supervisor regarding job performance should be continuous. The employee should go into a performance review knowing how he or she has performed throughout the year with no surprises.

Employers and their evaluating managers should treat performance assessments as a valuable communication tool for both employees and supervisors - a stepping-stone for progress in the right direction. When the evaluation is complete, both parties should have a clear picture of where the employee has been in the past year and where he or she is going. Then, the manager must routinely follow-up with the employee to assess his or her progress, daily, weekly or monthly, until the next formal review.
