What is Business Insurance?
Business Risk Management
Business risk management is a subset of risk management which evaluates, prioritises and addresses the risks involved in any changes to your business operations, systems and processes. It acts as a guide in decision-making and planning in the event of an emergency or an opportunity.
Why is it needed?
Business risk management also enables an integrated response to multiple risks and facilitates informed, risk-based decision-making capabilities.
What is Professional Indemity Insurance?
Professional indemnity insurance protects you against claims for loss or damage made by clients or third parties as a result of the impact of negligent services you provided or negligent advice you offered. Compensation claims can be brought against you even if you provided a service or offered advice for free.
What is Public Liability Insurance?
Public Liability Insurance offers cover for third party liabilities (Bodily Injury / Property Damage) arising out of the premises and operations of the Insured and legal costs incurred in connection therewith.
For IT Contractors
What is an IT Contractor? IT contracting is where an IT specialist works as their own individual company for a client organisation in a business-to-business agreement. These specialists are contracted on a fixed-term basis, usually to work on individual projects, as opposed to traditional permanent staff who are employed on an ongoing basis.
What types of Business Risk are there?
More specifically, the following examples should be considered in your business risk management assessment:
How are Consultants different from Contractors?
ConsultantA consultant is generally referred to as an ‘experienced professional’ and will provide expert knowledge in return for a fee. They tend to work in an advisory capacity only and are usually not accountable for the outcome of a consulting exercise. Some consultants have introduced dramatic shifts in management thinking and improvements in the performance of organisations.
ContractorA contractor is also an experienced professional, but one who provides a specialist service in return for a fee. Unlike a consultant, in most cases, a contractor will carry out the work. In some instances, they may also advise on what the work should be.
Contractors are used by organisations that wish to acquire a given skill set for a period of time but do not wish to employ somebody on a permanent basis. As such, a contract is for a set period only, which can be amended if both parties agree.
