Corin Underwriting, a leading virtual insurer based in Leigh-on-Sea, has been awarded the Investors in People silver accreditation. This recognition underscores Corin's commitment to fostering a workplace culture centred on its people and ensuring excellence in leadership practices.

Clare Laidler of Investors in People said:

“When it comes to culture and people, Corin ‘get’s it’, many organisations struggle to engender a culture focused on people, Corin makes it look easy. It isn’t. At Corin leaders understand that culture comes from them and their day-to-day approaches with people. Values are genuinely expressed and therefore engendered”.

Andy Hurrell, Founder of Corin Underwriting, said:

“We recognize that our people are our most valuable asset. Our focus on their development and well-being is integral to our success. By consistently investing in our team and fostering a positive workplace environment, we aim to position ourselves as the employer of choice in the MGA market. This consistent approach is another component of what makes us a successful virtual insurer.”

Underwriting offers one of the most attractive packages in the insurance Managing General Agent (MGA) market, including highly competitive financial benefits and private healthcare for all employees. The company's commitment to providing an exceptional working environment is further demonstrated by the recent renovation of its new office in Leigh-on-Sea, tailored to Corin's specifications.

There is an established culture of innovation and diversity within Corin Underwriting, alongside the provision of opportunities for young insurance professional to personally develop. That is progressively attracting top talent, as the war on talent continues to rage.

Furthermore, Corin Underwriting has expanded its involvement in the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) Apprenticeship Scheme, showcasing its dedication to nurturing talent within the industry. The firm's efforts have resulted in high staff satisfaction ratings and impressive retention rates, reflecting its ongoing commitment to employee development and well-being.

A final but important aspect of the working culture at Corin Underwriting is its community work, a feature that young industry talent are increasingly looking to be involved with. Corin Underwriting underlines its practical commitment to community engagement by supporting the local football club, Leigh Ramblers, and the I Fight For James charity to help a family dealing with muscular dystrophy, a degenerative muscular disorder which has no cure.
