Company Ranks Among the Top Five Carriers Nationally and #1 in California
SAN DIEGO (December 3, 2021) — ICW Group Insurance Companies, a leading group of property and casualty carriers, was named a preferred workers’ compensation carrier in a survey conducted by national marketing research firm, Channel Harvest Research.
Ranked #1 in California and among the top five in the nation, the survey asked independent insurance agents to identify their preferred work comp carrier among all those with whom they do business.
“The collaborative relationships we’ve built with our agents is paramount to our success as a top-tier work comp carrier,” said Paul Zamora, Senior Vice President, Work Comp Underwriting. “Being singled out by our valued partners in this way is something of which we are very proud. We extend a heartfelt thank you to our agent community and look forward to continuing to create the best insurance experience possible for their clients.”
Survey participants were also asked to rank carriers on attributes that are important to their business and their clients. ICW Group ranked among the top 5 nationally in the areas of specializing in workers’ compensation, reducing the number of claims and cost of claims to lower ex-mods, and reviewing work comp claims for fraud within 24 hours.
The survey, titled “Agent Voices 2021,” was conducted earlier this year by Channel Harvest Research. Each year Channel Harvest Research surveys independent agents nationwide to find out what they think of the carriers they do business with and their views on important issues in the insurance marketplace. This was the 14th Channel Harvest annual survey.
