Insurance giant IAG is helping not only its customers but the company’s broker partners by launching a number of initiatives amid the coronavirus crisis.
The support measures include access to a free round-the-clock confidential coaching and counselling service provided by Assure; the opportunity to participate in Accidental Counsellor training workshops offered by Lifeline; as well as a fully funded digital marketing campaign with OneAffiniti.
In addition, IAG firm CGU is rolling out a ‘Business as Unusual’ speaker series featuring the likes of former Australian Prime Minister John Howard, well-known businessman Mark Bouris AM, and futurist and media commentator Chris Riddell.
CGU has also partnered with the National Insurance Brokers Association (NIBA) to provide CPD-accredited (Continuing Professional Development) webinars covering subjects focussed on the current environment.
“This is a difficult time for everyone, and we’ve been speaking to many of our broker partners to understand the challenges they’re facing because of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Steve Marshall, business distribution executive general manager at IAG.
“We’re pleased to introduce a series of initiatives to help brokers through these challenging times – including mental health and wellbeing programmes, professional development, and business support measures.”
