More than two-thirds (69 percent) of small business owners who have workers' compensation insurance say they want to purchase this type of insurance in the future through an agent, according to the Small Business Opinion Poll conducted by Opinion Research Corporation. Commissioned by w/c carrier EMPLOYERS. The Small Business Poll surveyed 500 small business decision makers across the country.

The Small Business Poll also revealed that nearly half of small businesses with worker's comp (45 percent) are currently simplifying the process of buying and managing their workers' compensation insurance by bundling it with complementary coverage and services like general liability, business insurance, health insurance or payroll.

"Much like CPAs, knowledgeable insurance agents are trusted advisors who provide much more than just a competitive price," said Martin Welch, president and COO, EMPLOYERS. "They provide smart counsel and services to protect a business and lower costs."
