Workers’ comp, cost containment strategies topics at Always Best Care international conference

Roseville, CA (August 6, 2015) – Joe Schaffner, Director of the National In-Home Care Division for The SilverStone Group, led a special “Workers’ Compensation Cost Containment” seminar at the brand’s 4th International Conference in San Antonio, Texas.    The SilverStone group understands that risk management in today’s world can be challenging and that no two industries face exactly the same types of risk exposure. That’s why their team members specialize by industry. The result is a dedicated team of non-compartmentalized specialists, each well versed in the details of the business, but who also share a critical, “bigger picture” perspective.


With more than 22 years of professional experience in the financial arena, Mr. Schaffner is widely recognized as a leader in the home care industry and specializes in group captives and other alternative risk transfer mechanisms. He has led numerous successful complex risk transactions outside the traditional risk management marketplace.  His expertise helps franchise owners navigate the complexities of their insurance program.
