Risk Engineering Services at Zurich
Corporate and commercial insurance
In today's complex world, many different risks can threaten a company's success. As a leading global insurer, we understand the vital importance of striving to manage all aspects of risk. Zurich's aim is to provide a business environment where risks and uncertainties are tackled with a systematic process which creates sustainable value for everyone.
At Zurich Risk Engineering, we view our constomers' risks from a comprehensive perspective - "All-embracing" is the phrase that best describes our approach to risk analysis and risk management. It is reflected in three key areas:
Global Reach Local Touch
We now have local professionals in over 34 countries worldwide and have access to more than 1,000 risk professionals, who have been trained to the same high standards, who understand local customers and, in addition to English, speak the local language.
Total Risk Perspective
There are two critical aspects to perspective that are equally important: where you are standing and where you are looking. Many risk management service providers claim to have the "big picture", but their views are inadvertently hindered by obstacles such as insurance coverage and insurable risks.
At Zurich Risk Engineering, we climb to a higher vantage point to get a clear view of our customers' risks, and view them from a 360 degree-perspective. This means our engineers analyze risks across the board, from operational risks and natural perils to business interruption, entrepreneurial and financial risks. We have developed proprietary tools called "Zurich Hazard Analysis" and "Total Risk Profiling", which we use with our customers to uncover, prioritize and improve the key risks that could have substantial impact on their bottom lines.
Risk Engineering Driven Services ---- Team-based Solution ----- Knowledge Transfer
We recognize not only the differing needs of our customers but also the varying levels of time and capacity our customers have to manage risk analyses and improvement efforts. This is reflected in our three-pronged customized service strategy:
Risk Engineering Driven Services
When the customer's time is limited and solid advice is needed, Zurich Risk Engineering can take the lead and develop a cost-effective solution, bearing in mind the customer's unique circumstances.
Ideally though the customer participates in identifying hazards and in developing a risk improvement strategy. In this case we provide the appropriate methodology and facilitation skills to lead a team of experts, provided by the customer, through the risk analysis process and assist the team in developing corrective actions.
Our customers frequently express an interest in using the Zurich Risk Engineering approach in house. For more than ten years we have supported this strategy in a number of ways: from publications to training programs and workshops. Now we are also providing tools such as the Knowledge Navigator and the Training Center.
Zurich employs 1,300 skilled and experienced professionals to offer risk management services worldwide. We manage and execute over 200,000 risk assessments annually and hundreds of international service programs. No matter where you are in the world or what business you are in, Zurich Risk Engineering aims to support you in systematically identifying and assessing the types of risks that threaten your company's viability.
