Voted Readers Choice Insurance Agent of the year 2016 & 2017 by Enterprise Recorder.

Sam Eknoian
Risk Management Consultant

Many employers, perhaps even you, view the insurance buying process as a time-consuming experience that yields little to no value. We understand why: the typical “bid & quote” process is not set up for providing you with the value and quality outcomes you deserve. Unfortunately, many employers follow this process because they’ve been led to believe that it’s the most effective approach. What we have found is that approach actually harms – not helps – you.

 Let me share with you why.

 Just to name a few, the typical “bid & quote” process doesn’t ensure that:

  1. Your business is in compliance with Federal, State and OSHA requirements, which could leave you at risk for fines, penalties and litigation.
  2. Your business has access to the resources necessary to effectively manage your workforce, which could result in lost opportunities, non-compliance and wasted time.
  3. Your experience modification factor (EX-MOD) is accurate or being properly managed, causing you to pay more for your workers’ compensation insurance.

 At Van Beurden Insurance we engage employers in our risk assessment process that is really geared around helping you take control of your workers compensation program and uncover any risk or waste you are unaware of or that may be off your radar screen.

 Utilizing this process has allowed us to tailor solutions specifically for each employer, bringing them a high level of value.

Sam has implemented tailor made solutions to better protect our employees and business. Sam has also reviewed our audits every year and has saved us thousands.

– Chief Executive Officer

Sam is not your average insurance agent! Sam has helped our company with employee forms and helped realign our hiring process. With great care, he fundamentally changed our business for the better, and now not only has our Work Comp costs dropped dramatically but we are better protected.

– Chief Executive Officer

We are extremely happy Sam reached out to our company and we decided to go through his workers compensations risk assessment process. Not only did he discover risk we didn’t know existed but also got our ex-mod recalculated resulting in thousands of dollars in savings.

– Chief Executive Officer

Sam helps us with all aspects of our business, and we consider him a part of our team. He works with us throughout the year to achieve our goals and objectives and truly cares about our business and continued success. After going through the risk assessment process, I knew Sam was the right choice.

– Vice President

When we meet with Sam and he discovered our ex-mod was incorrect and then fixed it which reduced our Work Comp expenses, I knew we’d found an insurance agent for life.

– Chief Financial Officer

Insurance is one of our larger line items, and it’s always been a lot of headaches and it’s certainly been frustrating. That all changed when we met Sam.” Sam is a part of our business and makes sure we properly avoid and transfer risk. Sam has also been a big help with the implementation of sexual harassment training.

– Human Resources Director

We had no idea how smoothly it would go when we switched to Van Beurden Insurance. Sam was – and is – invaluable. He helped us is all aspects of our business including the review of our contracts.
