Atlantic Canada’s leading workplace safety and disability claim management company, Dallas Mercer Consulting (DMC), has expanded with a new office in Moncton, with four disability managers in place to help New Brunswick-based companies with their workers’ compensation needs.
“Most employers believe there’s nothing you can do to lower disability management costs,” notes President and CEO Dallas Mercer. “In reality, DMC’s expert team of passionate and experienced professionals end up reducing 91% of their client’s worker’s compensation cost – even after paying the DMC professional fees.”
DMC was founded in 2002 to support employers as they navigate costly and time-consuming workers’ compensation issues. Over sixteen years later, the company now works with over 500 clients coast-to-coast, employing 27 people, and with expanded offerings including health and safety consulting, safety training and industrial hygiene.
Dallas Mercer has made it her business and her passion to advocate for employers across the country. She began her career in the workers’ compensation world in 1989 before moving to the Newfoundland Labrador Employers’ Council (NLEC) in 1997. These experiences led her to understand that most employers don’t always have the knowledge, time or resources needed to ensure fair resolutions pertaining to workers’ compensation claims.
Considering the success DMC has had in other provinces, Mercer has no doubt they will have a substantial impact in reducing workers’ compensation rates and lowering internal costs for New Brunswick employers.
“We look forward to helping New Brunswick employers gain a real understanding of workers’ compensation, their role and what they can do to reduce their costs,” says Mercer. “As employers, they can have a direct impact on their workers’ compensation rates.”
With national expansion on the horizon, Mercer says DMC expects to create many new full-time positions in New Brunswick to serve both linguistic communities. “With DMC working on their side, employers will know they have someone dedicated to ensuring that their files are being managed properly and that they are getting their people back to work quickly and safely.”
For those who would like to learn more about how they can affect the costs associated with workers’ compensation, Dallas and her team are hosting a series of employer-focused workshops in New Brunswick in April and May, in partnership with local chambers of commerce and economic development agencies.
