Whether you run your own small business or you are climbing the corporate ladder, this is a must read book. As a civil defense attorney, I see people make good decisions and bad decisions on a daily basis. This book addresses both in detail and is full of valuable information for any business professional. Drawing on years of experience in the insurance industry, Dalrymple clearly and concisely sets out the essentials for the benefit of the reader. Read it.

This is an easy read but a must read for HR. His recommendations are a proven must to reduce worker's compensation issues and costs. His take on health and wellness as to how it relates to improving worker's compensation is right on target in this day and age.

If you want to lead your organization based on analytics, this is a great book to guide you in the area of workers compensation. Rick does a great job of bringing together a lot of information and presenting it in an actionable way with measurable methods. Managing the workplace so that workers compensation losses are prevented and controlled is an often over looked area for competitive advantage. Fortunately, for the reader, Rick doesn't just pontificate on what you can do about controlling this part of the business - he gives you a plan and a path to success. Having spent nearly 30 years in the industry and having worked with thousands of insurance brokers and business owners, I can strongly recommend Rick's book.

Rick's book is a wonderful guide to not only the topic of Worker's Compensation and what a company can do to minimize risk, but also a wonderful holistic approach to the health of a business. It truly starts with hiring the right folks for the job and this book gives management an approach to do just that....start with knowing what a company's needs are, having the job description as the road map to hiring and then following the map. Once hired, proper training and monitoring will help a business to be successful. Thanks Rick for writing an easy-to-read guide with many helpful links.
