“Our participation in PGCA’s workers compensation Safety Group #514 has saved us over 10% in premiums immediately upon joining, but overall savings due to the annual member dividend adds up to over 30%, with enhanced safety oversight provided by GKG and PGCA.  Also, having partnered with GKG/PGCA for our commercial insurance & employee benefits needs (plus savings from other PGCA programs) has had our annual membership fee returned to us at least 6-7 times annually.”

“Our decision to leverage the risk/insurance benefits of our PCGA membership by partnering with GKG has positioned us to grow and thrive in a competitive marketplace.   GKG knows my business and are experts in their field.  They quickly helped me to understand what is impacting the cost of my insurance program and how I can gain control going forward.  I can sleep at night knowing we have the coverage we need and none that we don’t.  Our PGCA membership has more than paid for itself!  The premium savings year to date well exceeds the cost of our membership.  And the impact on our bottom line has created opportunity in other areas of the business.  I highly recommend the GKG/PGCA team to other companies looking to grow and thrive like ours.”
