    Making flexible working work for your business

    In this episode we talk about the new ways of working in a post pandemic world, and what can be done to help businesses, customers, and employees thrive in this environment.

    Flexible working has been shown to provide employees with more control, transmits trust, allows for a better work-life balance and can even have a positive effect on the environment. But how do we make it work without undermining team building and a collaborative culture?

    E-mobility

    E-mobility

    Are you thinking of going electric - with your car that is? From 2030, there won't be a choice: new conventional petrol or diesel cars and vans won't be sold in the UK.

    We look at the implications as we move to e-mobility for the insurance industry. From where liability lies if there is an issue with charging vehicles, and the infrastructure behind plugging in your car and van, to what happens in the event of a claim.

    Discussing electric vehicles and the implications, our host - Steph McGovern - is joined by:

    Nick Kelsall, Head of Motor Claims, Allianz

    Gill Nowell, Head of Electric Vehicle Communications, ElectriX

    Underinsurance

    Underinsurance

    One of the worst mistakes a firm can make happens before a loss occurs, is to be underinsured. With inflation increasing over the next few years, many small firms may accidentally be in a position where their insurance doesn’t cover the full value that could be lost.

     The pandemic has resulted in many businesses operating in ways they didn't expect, and for which they may not have full cover. We examine a key part brokers have in ensuring that companies are adequately insured, for example by reviewing the sum insured both at renewal time and when changes happen to the business.  

    Discussing underinsurance and its implications, our host - Steph McGovern - is joined by:

    Helen Bryant, Director, Digital Trading, Allianz

Bite size

I love the length of these podcasts. Insurance is complex and confusing for those not in the industry and I feel that these podcasts are perfect in terms of clear, easily understandable content and being bite sized. Well done Steph and Allianz 👍
