This episode highlights business resiliency and tackles what steps businesses can take to achieve it. Jessica shares real examples that are pertinent across the industry, including catastrophic weather and the unique disruptions that result from its impact, skilled labor shortage, and supply chain disruptions. With the industry adapting to enhance its business resiliency, Jessica shares that she believes better communication between Insureds and Carriers will drive success with contingency and risk mitigation practices. 

Jessica leaves us with three takeaways regarding business resiliency. Those are:

  1. Work to understand the changing risk landscape
  2. Advance your internal resilience capabilities; things can always be better!
  3. And Implement strategic Insurance coverages to help offset those risks and challenges, both seen and unseen.

Throughout this conversation Jessica reminds us it is never a bad idea for listeners looking to build business resiliency today or tomorrow to scrutinize and review your risk management strategy. It’s more important than ever to review your strategy and make sure there are no oversights regarding recent developments.
