Holiday Shopping | ALGAIt’s hard to believe that we are already at that time of the year again. With delicious food, Christmas trees, menorahs, and festive music right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about prepping your staff for the holiday season, as well as preparing to bring on the additional workers you’ll need to help with the expected increase in sales.

In all of the hustle and bustle of getting ready for “the most wonderful time of the year,” it should be the primary concern of every business owner to make sure that their company and staff are protected. An Atlanta business insurance agency can help you prepare for this by making sure you have the appropriate amount of insurance coverage in place.

Workers’ Compensation Insurance Ensures Everyone’s Holiday is Safe

If you plan to hire temporary or seasonal staff to help you get through the busiest season of the year, then now is a good time to take a close look at your Workers’ Compensation insurance coverage. Your full-time employees likely have received the appropriate training on how to perform their jobs well without incurring injury – but seasonal hires are not as likely to be trained in the same way.

This increases the risk of injury on the job, and therefore increases the risk of a Workers’ Compensation claim. You don’t want your employees to suffer an injury while doing their job, and you certainly don’t want to be out-of-pocket for insurance claims you weren’t anticipating. Make sure you and all of your staff are covered so that everyone can rest well and enjoy the merriment of the season.

Deck the Halls with Holly, Lights, and Trees – and Property Insurance

For many small business owners, Christmas often means getting the opportunity to decorate with special lights, candles, and so forth. All of these characteristic elements add excitement and joy to all of the end-of-year festivities and often puts everyone into a happy, cheery mood all season long.

This is an ideal time to check that you have adequate Property Insurance.  This coverage ensures that all of your inventory, equipment, and property are protected. Accidents do happen – whether an employee accidentally forgets to unplug the Christmas lights or someone leaves a scented candle burning overnight – but having Property Insurance means that your building and everything inside it is covered in case of an accident.

This holiday season, give yourself the gift of peace of mind, knowing that you, your employees, and everything you’ve worked for is covered with the right insurance protection. The team at Atlanta Life General Agency can help you determine if you have the right amount of coverage, and can provide you with an affordable policy that works for your business.
