PEOPLE ARE KEY  ​

 

Your office equipment and inventory are valuable assets, but are they as valuable as your key employees? Consider a top sales person who is unsurpassed at bringing in revenue or new accounts, or a researcher whose innovative ideas have helped the company flourish.

Key employees may be your most valuable resource. Their energy, expertise and dedication can give you an edge over your competition and enable your business to

succeed.  What would happen if one of your key employees died or became disabled?  Profits could be affected and you might be forced to absorb the high costs associated with recruiting, hiring, and training suitable replacement.


You can’t guarantee the continued good health of your employees, but insurance on the lives of your company’s key people can help prevent an unexpected loss from financially harming or even destroying the business that you have built with the help of these valuable employees.  Key person insurance provides security and the knowledge that your business’s bottom line won’t suffer even if you or one of your key employee dies or becomes disabled. It is simply good business.
