It’s important that all businesses not only serve their customers, but also do their part to help the wider community and other organisations when they need it most.
BHIB Insurance Brokers is a commercial insurance broker based in Grove Park, Leicester – which provides services for thousands of charities, community groups and some local councils in the region as well.
The company’s specialist sectors include professional service firms, contracting and manufacturing, transport and logistics, high net-worth individuals, the media and entertainment industry, NGOs, and more.
The business even has its own employee benefits department, which works to provide health care services to other companies in the UK.
In the last few months, BHIB Insurance has been acquired by Clear Insurance Management, giving the business a much larger national footprint and allowing it to grow from four to 14 offices and more than 450 staff across the country.
BHIB Insurance is also part of ‘Brokerbility Holdings Limited’ (BHL), and the ‘Brokerbility Network’ – an exclusive umbrella network for other independent insurance brokers to join and gain access to exclusive deals and benefits.
The network continues to remain strong due to the high standard of Brokers in the membership, and because of its size, financial strength and sustainability.
With such a strong entrepreneurial spirit, it’s no surprise that BHIB Insurance will be partnering with the Leicestershire Live Business Awards this year, and sponsoring the Not-for-Profit-Organisation category.
The much-anticipated awards ceremony will take place on Thursday, September 16, 2021, at the Maher Centre. For tickets, please contact Michelle Roberts via [email protected]
BHIB Insurance’s Head of Digital Sales and Marketing, Ajay Mistry says: “The not-for-profit sector is important for us and what we’ve been doing recently is really tailoring our customer experience for charities and community groups.
“That includes specialist insurance and providing free useful support guides to all charities, such as how to return to offices after lockdown, and how to manage risks when holding meetings – as this information is often difficult for charities to attain. By coming to us the charities can receive the general insurance package, details of which is available on our website.
“We are proud to be partnered with Voluntary Action LeicesterShire, one of the biggest community organisation groups in the region who support thousands of charities across the county.
“Another fantastic charity we are working with is The Peepul Centre. It was brilliant to see them transferring all their central cervices into the vaccination programme, and we were impressed by how they turned their chain of operations around overnight due to good planning and good leadership. “
Support for Voluntary Action LeicesterShire
Voluntary Action LeicesterShire (VAL) first began working with BHIB Insurance in 2018.
From speaking to local charities and voluntary groups, BHIB insurance became aware that this sector needed some support around insurance, both in terms of advice and recommendations.
Paul Akroyd, Sector Support Manager at Voluntary Action LeicesterShire (VAL) says: “Partnering with BHIB Insurance is a relationship that has worked well for us but more importantly the wider sector.
“BHIB has provided training for us as well as support at a range of events we host, which are aimed at local charities and voluntary groups.”
Help and guidance for The Peepul Centre
Since the start of the Covid-19 crisis, the Peepul Centre has sought to fulfil its community responsibilities and do everything in its power to help those in the local area.
BHIB Insurance Brokers has been working with the NGO since 2019.
Hashmukh Pankhania, Director at The Peepul Centre says: “Following an initiative from our chair, Anil Bhanot, we have been running a free meals project since March 2020.
“We have since provided more than 100,000 meals to the most vulnerable. To further support people through these difficult times, we have also been running free fitness, health and wellbeing sessions, with a particular focus on older people.
“Besides our charitable projects, we have also been busy facilitating the conversion of our centre into a Covid-19 vaccination hub by the NHS. Inspired by which we have also launched a new health initiative, Peepul Health – an online forum offering free resources.
“Throughout this time BHIB Insurance has gone above and beyond to ensure that our needs are met, proactively contacting us and seeing whether there are any opportunities with which they could assist us. We opted to work with BHIB as they are a local firm that is known for meeting the needs of their clients and this is a decision we have been thankful for since.”
