Dr. Robert P. Hartwig, CPCU
March 27, 2014

This PowerPoint report by Insurance Information Institute President Robert Hartwig, made at the 16th annual AMCOMP Conference for workers compensation professionals, covered four issues affecting the comp market: opportunities for growth despite a still-sluggish economy; how the emergence of “winners and losers” in the economic recovery is reshaping the American labor force and the exposure base for workers compensation; the reindustrialization of America and the resulting opportunities for workers compensation insurers, including the key energy sector; and the inextricable linkage between workers compensation and the nation’s rapidly changing healthcare landscape in light of implementation of the Affordable Care Act. In addition, Hartwig presented current operating results in the workers compensation market and provided insights into what the next 100 years may bring in the comp market.
