Join us for an interesting Webinar, linking into our current President's theme of Accessibility, to understand how the changing Employment Trends are affecting the Insurance Market, including.....

  1. Increased self employment - how accessible is insurance advice for them with brokers consolidating and ifa’s reducing - they are being forced online to cheap but completely inappropriate covers that they only find out are bad at point of claim
  2. Increased service sector providing advice and treatment - how accessible is it for them to get professional indemnity advice - many offerings are from non advice providers. In the past the pi market was for the likes of solicitors and accountants , now its full of new advice givers who often do not know where to start ( think personal trainers )
  3. Increased working from home - two things here firstly are brokers / ifa’s making the most of new work practices and secondly are products keeping up with home working - they are not but should be !
  4. Many people coming to the UK to provide valuable skills - how accessible are insurance products ( general insurance and life and pensions ) for these individuals , do we give them help with language offerings is there someone who can understand their cultural background to make it easier for them to do business , too often the insurance industry fail these customers.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how employment changes in the UK are dramatically changing
  • Understand how these changes are altering the demand for insurance
  • Discovering why the insurance industry has in many cases been slow to respond to these changes
  • Understand how business can be increased by responding more quickly to the changing UK employment trends
