Remote working - the benefits and challenges for businesses

We offer holistic risk management services to clients, providing advice and guidance to ensure protection for the risks you’re facing now and for those that may occur in the future.

We’ve seen an abundance of change over the last 18 months with new working practices being adopted. These changes have included a move away from office-based roles, to remote working which bring a variety of pros and cons for businesses.

Our risk management partner, Cardinus Risk Management, has produced an insightful white paper looking at the benefits and challenges of remote working for businesses.

As we emerge from the pandemic and start to get back to normal working patterns, many organisations are planning on keeping those changes, or adopting new working practices.

Key sections include

  • Who is classified as a Remote Worker?

Risk Management Services

Every business will have some exposure to risk, and whilst some risks will be obvious, others may be latent. Planning for risks that are not yet known is a challenge, (hindsight is always something we wish we had when something goes wrong), but with good advice and foresight, we can plan for the unexpected.

We’ll work with you to carry out a comprehensive assessment of the risks you are facing now and anticipate those that could arise in the future. We’ll review your current levels of cover and offer impartial advice on how best to protect your business – helping you to create a robust insurance programme.

Working with us gives you access to our risk management hub where you’ll find a host of free information and training courses for areas such as H&S and HR. We believe this service offers a tangible benefit for many businesses.
