How changing Employment Trends are affecting the Insurance market

G-Live, Guildford

6:00 pm – 7:15 pm
    • Alan Chandler, Chartered Insurer, ITP Ltd

>> Event Overview

During the last 20 years there have never been more changes in employment trends in the UK – in many cases the insurance industry has been slow to change.

Small business numbers have increased by 2.2 million since 2000! Many people are now working from home, many more people are now giving advice, many immigrant groups have arrived to provide valuable skills – the demand for commercial insurance products has changed dramatically but in many cases the policies and sales processes offered are still stuck in the last century!

The insurance industry has often been slow to respond to changes in demand and this presentation looks at how employment practices have changed and will continue to change dramatically, and how brokers could increase remuneration if they start amending their processes to make them line up more accurately with the needs of the changing employment sector.

The FCA estimate that 40% of SMEs are under insured and at the end of 2016 86.3% did not have any cyber cover at all.

There will be stacks of interesting facts and figures in this presentation that will get intermediaries and insurers thinking about whether they are making the most of the business opportunities brought about by changing employment trends within the UK.
