Airmic research has reaffirmed a trend in the growing importance of managing risk as a strategic enabler.
Risk and insurance professionals who combine digital literacy with a creative mindset and strong influencing skills are likely to be best positioned to succeed as valued strategic business partners.
The increase in those who have joint responsibility for managing risk and insurance indicates that the Airmic objective to drive the integration of managing risk and insurance is moving in a positive direction.
The talent pipeline of younger risk professionals is more likely to be female, although diversity in the profession remains a work in progress.
The potential value of mentoring will increase, as it helps to fulfil a need for professional and emotional connection in a hybrid or remote working environment.
Airmic members are loyal to their organisations, with more than half having worked for their current organisation for more than six years. However, people policies and practices must be updated to reflect the new world – loyalty cannot be taken for granted.
