Our Approach

THE OLD SAYING, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”, shouldn’t strike anyone as a “new” idea. But, looking towards the future and evaluating potential issues often takes more perspective than one organization can muster. The true “risk health” of your company includes aspects of insurance, workplace safety, and human resources.

AT MOMENTIV, we align these components under one roof offering your company these benefits, and better yet, we often do it at the same or less expense to your organization.Each of our policies include consulting credits that you can apply wherever your company could use a hand. You have access to over five decades of professional experience in the fields of Insurance, Bonds, Human Resources, Industrial Safety, Worker’s Comp, and Injury Prevention & Management.

Our Solutions



ARE YOU feeling lucky, punk? Insurance is a staple of business risk management, but insurance companies can be a little “charge first and ask questions later”. At Momentiv we play the good cop, making sure our partners understand your motives and see your side of the case. We investigate your passions and question what keeps you up at night, giving us the insight needed to craft realistic solutions that have your back. Consider your business, part of our beat.

Workplace Safety

Workplace Safety

YOU WOULDN’T ship something valuable without proper packaging, not if you wanted it to arrive in one piece. Your people are way more precious to your business then any package. When preparing your people for all of business’s journeys, you owe it to them to take appropriate precautions. We advance your awareness to workplace hazards, injuries, and downtime to mitigate risk and prevent loss, creating optimum efficiency. Consider us your “business bubble-wrap”.

Human Resources

Human Resources

DO YOU employ gnomes? Yeah, we didn’t think so… but, if you did, they’d still need retirement savings, health insurance, employee manuals, and resolutions to large-hat-related conflicts. Yeah, they’d need just about the same things. These are some of Momentiv’s magical powers. We relieve stress, lighten your workload, all while enchanting compliance & critical administrative tasks, regardless of your employee’s size. Consider us your Knight in reasonably-polished armor.
