Although every business is different, one thing they all have in common is the need to manage the daily challenges that come along efficiently and with minimum disruption.
Whether it’s internal issues such as regulation or staff management; or external factors such as trading conditions or currency fluctuations; ensuring that your business runs smoothly is essential to its success.
On one hand you have to plan as far forward as you can, all the while controlling issues as and when they arise and none of us have a crystal ball to tell us what’s coming next so having the ability to be reactive to situations is essential.
In that respect, when it comes to commercial insurance, it’s all about managing potential risk. Risk to your business and risk to you personally if you are the business owner. So stop, get your thinking cap on and objectively ask yourself…
What’s The Biggest Risk To Your Business Right Now?
When we ask this question to clients, it often makes them reflect on their business as a whole and the role insurance may play to ensure its security. For example:
- A sales director may be worried about the economy in general and the ability for the business to sustain or increase sales.
- A financial director may be concerned about ever changing compliance issues and a potential audit from HMRC that will put the finances of the business under scrutiny and take up valuable time for his staff.
- A business owner may wonder what would happen if the worst happened and they were no longer around. Would the business sustain itself and would their family be secure?
These are all real problems for real businesses.
In some respects, you probably already know the risks for your organisation. You may already have them covered, you may have it on your To Do list, or you may simply be choosing to ignore them. It might be that you think the solutions are more complicated than they need to be?
That’s why working with a local commercial insurance broker will allow you to build relationships and, over time, trust.
The more you trust your insurance broker the more they can provide you with appropriate advice and solutions. It’s still your choice what action to take but at least you will understand more about the options.
