Culture and people the biggest barriers to digital evolution: Swiss Re

The risk-transfer industry will continue to rapidly evolve driven by the pressures of technology – but one of the biggest challenges could be changing mindsets and culture. That will be one of the themes of a virtual webinar hosted by Intelligent Insurer, “Digital Evolution and Industry 4.0: Re/insurers must adapt or die”, which will take place on December 7.

“Technological barriers are easier to overcome than mindset shifts needed to support digital transformation. The biggest risk we run with digitisation is that it is the perfect recipe for the cultural fabric to get weaker, if not executed and adopted properly.”

That is the view of Pravina Ladva, group digital transformation officer, Swiss Re, speaking in advance of a special virtual webinar hosted by Intelligent Insurer, “Digital Evolution and Industry 4.0: Re/insurers must adapt or die”, which will take place at 3:00pm GMT on December 7. The session will also feature “digital revolutionaries” from Mapfre, Aon and DLA Piper—leaders who are responsible within their respective organisations for driving digital transformation and change.

Digital evolution has become the new key battleground for success and market share. In this session, panellists at the front line of the digital revolution will explore the different strategic approaches of companies in this space.
