This text was produced in partnership with Aviva.

Desmond Devoy, of Insurance coverage Enterprise Canada, sat down with Fred Shurbaji, managing director of Aviva Enterprise, to debate why danger administration implementation is being missed, in response to Aviva Canada’s 2023 Danger Insights Report, and what brokers can do to alter that.

Corporations could agree that danger administration is vital – however those self same corporations will not be essentially following via or asking for assist in the case of danger mitigation.

Aviva’s Danger Insights Report has revealed that lower than one in three companies polled are finishing up danger assessments. The research additionally discovered that solely 29% of business companies are at present contacting their dealer or insurance coverage firm for assist, recommendation, and assist in the case of mitigating danger.

“Danger itself presents itself otherwise for every enterprise,” stated Fred Shurbaji, managing director, Aviva Enterprise. “This is a chance for us as an trade – for brokers and insurers – to speak with prospects and assist them higher perceive their exposures and the instruments obtainable to them in the present day to raised defend themselves from these rising dangers.”

That is the second 12 months that Aviva has carried out the danger insights report, which surveys 1,500 Canadian companies.

“Companies are feeling the consequences of rising and protracted headwinds,” he stated. “However with the appropriate contingencies in place, companies can definitely mitigate danger.”

Aviva’s danger administration survey – what did it reveal?

The survey of enterprise house owners, key choice makers and executives throughout 9 industries (together with manufacturing, retail, transportation, and hospitality) highlighted how companies now understand danger via an evolving lens. The pandemic undoubtedly had a huge effect on the danger strategy of many corporations – and as some normality returns, it’s encouraging to see that whereas danger doesn’t outline companies, they’re at the least being extra thoughtful of their strategy in the direction of it.

Aviva’s 2023 report discovered that 70% of companies deliberate to extend their deal with danger administration actions, and the longer an organization had been working, the extra doubtless they have been to have interaction with danger administration. Nonetheless, there remained an absence of proportionate motion, with fewer than one-in-four conducting insurance coverage danger surveys and fewer than a 3rd of companies persistently finishing up safety, well being and security, or enterprise influence assessments.

Understandably, danger administration is competing for the eye of homeowners and managers alongside different calls for, similar to consumer retention, enterprise development, cyber threats, sustainability, and provide chain points, to call just a few. On prime of this, price range limitations are one more reason why danger administration beliefs don’t all the time match up with actuality, for one-in-three companies surveyed.

Certainly, companies are feeling strained – with financial uncertainty listed as the highest danger within the present report, regardless of not having been featured within the prime 5 dangers companies recognized final 12 months. Different dangers highlighted within the present report included enterprise disruption, public well being occasions, a scarcity of a talented workforce and cyber threats.

Main the best way for Canadian companies

Nonetheless, amid chaos (or danger) there’s alternative for insurers and brokers alike to assist companies of all sizes put together for the long run.

“We’ve a big opening right here to turn out to be extra proactive each as insurance coverage corporations and brokers to assist prospects forestall losses and higher perceive that we will be a part of their loss mitigation plans,” stated Shurbaji. “Aviva has numerous instruments and assets at its disposal, and we even have a devoted Aviva Danger Administration Options crew, who’re there to assist and assist prospects and brokers to mitigate dangers.”

Danger administration can also be a type of insurance coverage that’s proving itself to be a necessity, fairly than alternative, time and time once more. As such, there is a chance to teach prospects and strengthen relationships via outlining, and mandating, required assessments.

“The pandemic has been an eye-opening expertise for companies and has raised consciousness of the significance of planning and danger administration,” Shurbaji outlined. “As an trade we are able to play a much bigger function in supporting prospects. Typically, we’re nonetheless seen because the go-to useful resource on the time of a loss. There may be extra insurers and brokers can do to assist prospects and be an integral a part of danger assessments too, to stop loss completely, or at the least diminish it, sooner or later.”

Future trendlines

Companies want a powerful plan in place to permit them to raised adapt and pivot within the face of adjusting circumstances – one thing that has been emphasised by the speedy modifications of the final three years.

For Shurbaji, the survey outcomes present that there’s a “disconnect between intent and motion. I feel most corporations have all the appropriate intentions although,” however by delaying and ignoring the issue, when it’s perceived that the danger is ‘not rapid’, it turns into a danger that tends to be ignored.

Nonetheless, he has excessive hopes for the long run.

“The Aviva Danger Insights Report is a superb barometer to determine what’s prime of thoughts for Canadian companies and a very good software that gives insights to insurers and brokers on what they should deal with to assist prospects going ahead,” he stated. “We hope to see an enormous shift in additional corporations taking measures to mitigate danger by turning consciousness into motion within the subsequent survey.”
