San Diego, CA (PRWEB) July 19, 2008
Barney & Barney, a privately owned insurance brokerage firm, was recently featured in Human Resources Executive Magazine. The magazine provides information on human resources news, special reports, legal clinics, careers and industry professionals.
The article, titled "Benefits Power Brokers: Disability" profiles Cotter and how he got into the industry. Cotter wanted to help employers in small to mid-markets keep healthcare costs under control through wellness programs. "To accomplish this, he needed to provide human resource departments with the support they needed to design, implement and run a program, and offer a way for fully insured/pooled employers to benefit financially," wrote Human Resources Executive staff writers.
Barney & Barney now provides an affordable service that offers a wellness coordinator to clients who implement a comprehensive wellness program. "Cotter also has negotiated special rating pools with health-insurance companies for the firm's clients, which allows them to be pooled with other qualifying employers who have successful wellness programs."
The program was first implemented within the Barney & Barney company and it has been noticed that medical renewal and absenteeism has decreased and employee morale has increased.
