In the realm of commercial insurance, the traditional model often revolves around brokers earning commissions by selling more insurance to clients. However, at CRS, we embrace a different philosophy—one of full transparency. This shift in perspective transforms the nature of our relationship with clients, particularly when working with construction companies.
The Counterintuitive Approach: Lowering Costs to Benefit Both Parties
Typically, brokers are financially incentivized to sell more insurance, and reducing claims might seem counterintuitive. But, at CRS, we believe in the bigger picture. Instead of solely focusing on policy placement, we invest time in understanding our clients’ needs, helping them manage claims, and ultimately lowering the overall cost of insurance.
Strategic Risk Management: A Long-Term Partnership
Our approach extends beyond immediate gains. We look at the long-term partnership between the broker and the construction company. By being transparent about costs, commissions, and incorporating risk management into our strategy, we aim to create a mutually beneficial relationship. We understand that a successful partnership means not only securing policies but also delivering results by minimizing claims and lowering costs.
Planning for Success: Shifting from Immediate Rewards to Long-Term Profitability
Working transparently allows us to collaborate on strategic planning, making your construction company more successful and, consequently, more profitable. While it may seem like a departure from the traditional model, the long-term rewards of a transparent approach far outweigh the short-term gains of merely placing policies.
Trust: A Two-Way Street
Transparency demands trust from both parties. We, as brokers, trust that our clients will prioritize risk management to ensure the longevity of our partnership. By minimizing claims and reducing costs, everyone involved—clients, brokers, and insurance companies—stands to benefit.
Conclusion: Winning Together in the Big Picture
Choosing to work with a commercial insurance broker that prioritizes full transparency is a strategic decision. It’s not about yearly client turnover but building a relationship that lasts for five or ten years. By actively managing insurance programs, providing control to clients, and focusing on the big picture, everyone involved emerges as a winner.
In conclusion, transparency isn’t just a philosophy for us; it’s a commitment to your success. Feel free to explore more of our content or reach out with any questions.
