CHICAGO, Oct. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2014 Workers' Compensation Benchmarking Study results will be featured in a presentation at the National Workers' Compensation and Disability Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada next month, entitled "Strategies for Overcoming Operational Challenges & Benchmarking Program Performance."

Claims management leaders face critical challenges overseeing daily operations with limited opportunity to rank their organizations' performance against industry peers. Rising's Workers' Compensation Benchmarking Study looked to change that by surveying management and executive-level claims leaders across the industry to quantify their most pressing operational challenges. Now in its second year, the study provides a chance for organizations to gauge their core competencies, best practices, technology, medical management performance and talent development.
In this conference presentation, a panel of study architects will share their interpretations and insights, and will provide claims professionals with practical ways that they can address industry-wide priorities and hurdles. Topics include strategies for how to:
Apply the study's recommendations for taking action on operational challenges and opportunities
Recognize key strategies industry leaders use to impact claims and medical outcomes
Analyze claims operation trends identified in study results
Examine critical talent development and retention issues
The full expert panel includes:
Denise Zoe Algire, Director, Managed Care & Disability, Corporate Risk, Safeway Inc. & Study Principal Researcher
John Smolk, Principal Manager, Workers' Compensation, Southern California Edison & Study Advisory Council Member
Raymond Jacobsen, Managing Director, AON Benfield & Study Advisory Council Member
