Chelmsford insurance broker, Ascend Broking, is offering its customers more than just insurance advice as many continue to struggle through the pandemic and the second lockdown.
The award-winning broker is providing clients with a specially created booklet called ‘Business in Balance’, which enables them to focus on restoring or maintaining their mental health, as well as adopting suggested techniques, with positivity at their heart, which will help them drive their businesses forward again.
The booklet is full of inspiring quotes, tips and advice on how to be intentionally positive, how to build mindfulness into a day-to-day routine and how to tackle mental health issues and impacts such as imposter syndrome.
It also explores ways to manage the negative impacts of social media, contains tips on how to show empathy to business contacts and clients and even suggests a playlist that will inspire and lift the mood.
The creation of the booklet, by Willis Towers Watson Networks, of which Ascend Broking is a member and which enables it to offer clients a wide range of policy options, assists brokers in doing what they do best – supporting their clients by every means possible. It is available to any Ascend client who wishes to take advantage of it and any new business setting up and wishing to access this unique take on business focus.
Ascend Broking’s managing director, Matthew Collins, says: “Businesses need to be stronger than ever as we come out of lockdown and social distancing, not just financially or physically but also mentally. The impacts of the past few months will have been felt by everyone and it is important to address some of the issues that may have emerged.
“Businesses need to be not just ready to operate but also ready to do so with a lot of positivity, as the coming months may be tough. Anyone just starting out on their business journey also needs to be full of optimism and drive. Our Business in Balance booklet should enable them to achieve this and extend the number of ways in which we assist clients, not just in negotiations with insurers but in practical and financial ways too.”
