Liberty Corner, New Jersey – August 27, 2020 – Everest Insurance® is pleased to announce its expanded suite of COVID-19 resources and technology tools for clients and their customers through Global Institutional Solutions (GIS) and workplace safety platform ZERO®.
Everest recognizes the difficulty its commercial property and casualty clients are experiencing as they work to stay up to date on the latest developments and regulations pertaining to COVID-19 while simultaneously trying to run a business, provide a safe work environment and support their employees. In McKinsey & Company’s COVID-19 Briefing, updated in July, the global consulting firm noted that 33% of global executives believe the pandemic recovery will be bumpy and slow, but added that resiliency and new ways of working would be key to a business’ success.
In an effort to help facilitate a safe and successful workplace, the following digital tools are now available for Everest policyholders:
- Everest has partnered with GIS, an online service that provides solutions to address difficult perils facing businesses, to create a COVID-19 Preparedness Kit portal. The portal offers a suite of advocacy and technology services to provide one-on-one support and assistance for Everest clients and their employees. This collaboration, first announced to Everest policyholders in early May, gained 14,000 users in its first month. Due to the customer demand for reliable, easily accessible COVID-19 information, Everest has launched an expanded collaboration with GIS that includes restart services designed to help Everest customers re-open their operations, while also supporting access for members of their respective organizations.
- Everest’s workplace safety management platform ZERO® is revolutionizing — and digitizing —the reentry process for businesses across the country. ZERO® offers clients real-time hazard reporting, OSHA incident filing and organized team communication channels. Additional features include easily deployable reentry pre-screen and daily health check forms and return-to-business checklists. By empowering employees at all levels to participate in the risk identification process, businesses can more effectively reduce risk, identify issues, ensure compliance and track and analyze incidents for better outcomes.
“With so much information and uncertainty surrounding pandemic preparedness and response, Everest remains committed to providing commercial clients with comprehensive technology resources to help overcome the challenges brought on by COVID-19,” said Scott Spencer, Head of Risk Consulting at Everest Insurance®. “We are proud to be able to offer both the GIS COVID-19 Preparedness Kit portal and ZERO® to our customers, and their employees, as we work to get these valuable tools into the hands of those who can benefit from them.”
