Since the beginning of time, businesses and business owners have been seeking to shield themselves from unnecessary risk. One risk that even a seasoned business owner might not have considered, is the risk of an important employee’s untimely passing.
This might be a partner, vice president, or even a manager who’s shoes could not easily be filled. Of course, this would have an effect on company morale, especially on those employees who were close to them. There passing very well might also have a direct effect on the company’s ability to make money.
With their health and safety being so closely tied to the success of the business, their untimely passing could have major consequences on the business’ success and even a business owners personal income, if it’s closely tied to the company’s profits.
