The Australian and New Zealand Institute of Insurance and Finance (ANZIIF) have named Gallagher Bassett (GB) as a finalist at the 2019 Insurance Industry Awards in the category of Insurtech Program of the Year.
GB was named a finalist in recognition of its development of Poster Designer, a free online tool which allows organisations to run targeted workplace health and safety campaigns by customising and downloading from a library of more than 100 health and safety poster templates.
Since launch, more than 2,500 different organisations have used the tool, with the posters appearing everywhere from police stations, to schools, to abattoirs to brewerys.
GB’s General Manager – Marketing and Communications, Drew Spilsbury, who lead the development of Poster Designer was delighted with the news.
“I'm really proud to see Poster Designer recognised as a finalist for Insurtech Program of the Year; at GB we pride ourselves on delivering claims solutions that are bespoke and totally customisable for our clients - it's great to see a part of our offering which really embodies that philosophy get this type of recognition” Drew said.
This is Drew's second time being named a finalist in this ANZIIF category, in 2019 he won ANZIIF Innovation of the Year for the development of GB's online Self Insurance LaunchPad.
When asked why GB is successful as an innovator Drew was quick to point to GB's corporate culture and values.
"The culture at GB has always been entrepreneurial; backing each other to be creative, take risks and make decisions is a part of The Gallagher Way and that culture really emboldens staff members to be innovative".
