Partnering with Approach has been a game-changer for our Company. Being a new owner of a delivery service provider serving Amazon’s logistical operations posed a steep learning curve navigating the state fund workers’ comp system. We have learned so much about the importance of strategies to control claims costs and are so thankful to our Approach team for all they do.
