Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap finishes off the year with NCCI’s release of its annual Focus on 5 survey report, which gathers the perspectives, needs, and challenges that insurer executives consider the most prominent for the coming year.
Nearly 2/3 of the leaders surveyed cited pandemic-related issues as their top concerns, which led NCCI to dedicate this year’s edition to COVID-19. Key concerns related to the pandemic included uncertainty about its duration, the size and number of related claims, and worker and economic recovery; statutory and regulatory activity including compensability presumptions; the overall health of the economy; maintaining rate adequacy; and the rapid adoption of work from home arrangements and accompanying issues such as compensable injuries at home, ergonomics, and at-home safety.
