In this edition of The EMPLOYERS Emphasis podcast; Adam Varahachaikol talks with the heart of the EMPLOYERS Affinity Programs team, Wayne Hilston - EMPLOYERS Vice President of Sales – Programs and Payroll Alliances and Kevin Osterman - National Programs Manager. We go more in-depth about what they do, who we work with, why it's important for small businesses to try to join an association related to their industry, and so much more. We'll also hear from a few of EMPLOYERS' association friends about their great relationships.

The Affinity Programs team works with associations, trade groups and strategic business partners to provide cost-effective workers' compensation insurance and additional products and services that help take the work out of workers' comp. As a provider of choice for many associations, EMPLOYERS offer premium discounts and dividends where permitted, as well as long-term savings through our proven services.

In this edition of The EMPLOYERS Emphasis podcast; Adam Varahachaikol brings back EMPLOYERS Client Relationship Manager, Basilios Manousogiannakis, to chat with Bryan Falchuk, author of his latest book, The Future of Insurance: From Disruption to Evolution, which has a chapter dedicated to EMPLOYERS' evolution in insurance. We learn more about Bryan’s insurance career and get his valuable insights on why carriers need to evolve. We also go over why you should read his book, what he learned writing it, and so much more.

Mr. Falchuk is a best-selling author, life and executive coach, TEDx presenter and public speaker with articles written for Inc. Magazine, The LA Times, Chicago Tribune and more. He’s also an advisor to the insurance industry and former C-level property and casual insurance and insurtech executive and extremely fascinating!

Bryan recently posted on LinkedIn that best describes what you can expect from the Future of Insurance: From Disruption to Evolution:

"We find ourselves in an interesting and unprecedented position in the insurance industry. On one side, we have pressures from customers to dramatically change the customer experience to match what they have come to expect from other industries. And on the other, we have pressure from new, tech-enabled, startup carriers free of many of the constraints existing carriers face.

Yet despite these pressures and constraints, some carriers are innovating and evolving.

'The Future of Insurance: From Disruption to Evolution' shares seven case studies of carriers succeeding in a changing industry. Written by industry veteran, Bryan Falchuk, whose 20-year career in P&C Insurance includes time as a COO and CCO, as well as a leadership role in an InsurTech provider and an advisor to many startups.”
