Guild Insurance has been recognised as the Small General Insurance Company of the Year at this year’s Australian Insurance Industry Awards.
Nominated for demonstrating exceptional dedication to the Australian insurance industry and sharing a common pursuit for excellence, the recognition was awarded by the Australian and New Zealand Institute of Insurance and Finance. ANZIIF are Australia’s leading insurance and finance membership, education, training and professional development organisation.
Guild Insurance specialise in professional indemnity, business and workers compensation insurance with a focus on not only Australian healthcare professionals, but also their pets with Vets Choice insurance for pets. Guild were recognised for their initiatives and programs that demonstrated a strong commitment to the wellbeing of the community while supporting their customers through the COVID-19 vaccination roll out. Guild also provided pandemic relief to a large number of customers through discounted premiums in 2020 and were commended for the clear way in which pandemic-specific insurance information was communicated to its wider customer base.
Judges further recognised Guild for its ongoing commitment to their staff while they worked remotely, with the company launching a leadership academy that contributed to strong employee engagement scores.
"Guild Insurance’s display of market leadership during 2020 will undoubtedly encourage new attitudes towards insurance as a profession and further inspire the industry to invest in taking responsibility for the community", a spokesperson for ANZIIF said.
Scott Simmons, the Acting GM – Insurance accepted the award on behalf of Guild Insurance saying “We are thrilled and honoured to accept this award that recognises our employees’ professionalism, dedication, hard work, their care for their clients and for each other throughout a very difficult year.
Our purpose is to be there for those people who our communities rely on and undoubtedly, we’ve demonstrated that. Our communities, our business partners, the associations we work with, our clients, our claimants, and most importantly our people. I’m so proud to lead a dedicated and enthusiastic team.
We, the team at Guild Insurance were recognised among some of Australia’s biggest and best insurers. We’d like to thank all of our wonderful partners and encourage them to share in our success. Without them, none of this would be possible!
The past few years have been challenging for us all, but we know that there’s safety in numbers. And while we may be a smaller company, together we can all be a part of something bigger.
