Marsh’s Work with Adecco Honored with US Insurance Award

Business Insurance recently named Marsh Advisory and its global temporary staffing client Adecco USA “Risk Management Team of the Year” in its 2020 US Insurance Awards program.

Business Insurance recently named Marsh Advisory and its global temporary staffing client Adecco USA “Risk Management Team of the Year” in its 2020 US Insurance Awards program. The program, now in its third year, highlights exceptional work done by insurance professionals working at companies across the commercial insurance industry.

Selected by a panel of more than 50 risk managers, Marsh and Adecco – which on any given day has 300,000 associates working with 7,000 customers in 60 countries – were recognized for their multi-year, innovative approach to reducing workplace injuries and improving safety.

Among strategies implemented was the creation of a new artificial intelligence-driven platform and mobile safety app to automate the review process, identify and score job risks, and provide safety tips to client location managers; and targeted safety strategies for 10 key client locations identified as causing 80% of Adecco’s loss frequency.

More recently, Adecco introduced wearable SmartBelts to reduce Musculoskeletal Disorder injuries at several customers with warehouses and distribution centers. Worn by packers, pickers, forklift drivers, and others, the SmartBelt transmitted human movement, location, and environmental data that allowed Adecco and Marsh to quickly correct behaviors, provide best practice training, and modify/rotate jobs as needed.

Among the impressive results from this collaborative program, Adecco’s experience modification rating has dropped from 1.48 in 2015 to 0.91 in 2019, below industry average.
