Welcome to World Wide -
Founded almost 50 years ago by Eileen Lesberg, World Wide has always had a singular purpose – to design, develop and provide insurance products for the staffing industry. From the very beginning, when there were no industry specific policies available — and no insurance carriers with any knowledge of the industry — the word “no” was never an option for her. World Wide has been guided by Eileen’s principles ever since.
In recognition of her service and dedication to the staffing industry, in 2004 Eileen was awarded the ASA Industry Leader Award, the first ever industry supplier recipient. In Eileen’s acceptance speech, she said, “I have taught one of the largest insurance carriers in the world about the staffing industry, and I have taught the staffing industry about insurance.”
The profile of today’s staffing company is very different from the company of yesteryear. Changing services, placements, delivery, contract requirements and globalization continue to alter the face of this dynamic industry. These changes constantly drive the needs and protection required from an insurance product perspective. Same old, same old isn’t sufficient anymore — that attitude prevents firms from exceeding in a competition-driven business environment.
Our method is simple: track those changes; listen to emerging needs, and respond.
World Wide has issued in excess of 100,000 policies to staffing firms. We work with over 2,000 insurance brokers nationwide. We know this industry better than any. We are an integral part of the staffing industry, and proud of that.
Service is our mantra. Unique insurance coverage was our history. Cutting-edge insurance policies are our future. In response to the ever-changing needs of staffing firms, World Wide is proud to have partnered with Zurich in North America as the exclusive provider of its staffing insurance product portfolio.
Welcome to the new generation of staffing insurance.
insurance solutions for the staffing industry!
