The Spooner Risk Control family of companies was established in 1975, when Tom Spooner uprooted his son from his bedroom to turn it into an office. What started as a labor relations and HR consulting firm has grown to offer solutions for many of the challenges that employers face. In 2017, Tom’s grandson Joe Spooner stepped into the role of president to ensure the company’s values continue to align with the ideals set forth from the beginning - to educate and protect Ohio employers.
Many of the factors that inflate workers’ comp costs (fraud, inappropriate medical treatment, excessive time away and both temporary & permanent disability awards) are preventable or manageable. Our claims management style curbs the abuse by consistently monitoring activity and identifying problematic situations early.
As our clients’ needs changed over the years, so did the services we offer. We took the basic principles of our proactive management on workers’ comp and applied that to managing FMLA, unemployment and absence management. When we saw that Ohio’s monopolistic system didn’t offer a solution for every business here, we began building our Professional Employer Organization (PEO) – Surety HR. Founded in 2017, our PEO offers administrative solutions and boasts an option to be part of our self-insured workers’ comp policy.
If your company has employment-related burdens – chances are, Spooner’s family of companies has a solution. We’d love to learn more about your business, what keeps you up at night, and how partnering with us can help.
