Just 2% of insurance workers furloughed

Just 2% of staff across the insurance industry have been furloughed according to a snap social media poll by the Chartered Insurance Institute.

The CII’s Twitter poll showed that at the end of April approximately 2% had been furloughed, 73% were OK working from home and roughly 17% were struggling with carrying out their roles from home.

The poll was however limited in its reach, with only 148 CII members taking part. Of those that did, 7.4% reported they were still having to go into their office during the coronavirus pandemic.

The CII added that 25 members who had been furloughed had contacted since the end of April in order it to take advantage of a 20% discount on digital learning materials. Members facing financial hardship due to being made redundant or working for a business that has collapsed as a result of COVID-19 are also eligible for discounts and financial assistance on digital learning or membership.
