It begins with a curiosity and the desire to understand the inner workings of your business. If one does not understand a business and its issues, it is not possible to adequately perform exposure identification. Gilbert’s Risk Solutions agrees that the design and procurement of insurance is essential. However, unlike most agents, brokers, and carriers, GRS does not see insurance as the cornerstone of trusting, long-lasting, and mutually profitable relationships.
The Risk Shield Process™ utilizes a variety of techniques to identify, measure, and reduce risk while enhancing your organization’s performance through non-insurance solutions. Each decision about how to manage risk is examined in light of its impact on your organization's bottom line.
The Risk Shield Process™ is the diagnostic assessment process developed by GRS to empower your organization to identify, measure, and prioritize your exposures to loss. Recognizing that losses vary from minor accidents to major catastrophes, The Risk Shield Process™ identifies your exposures to loss, uncovers the types of risks to which you are vulnerable, and determines how well positioned you are to control a loss should one occur.
Instead of starting with the traditional insurance “bidding process,” GRS believes that it is essential to understand and improve your “risk profile” before negotiating the insurance transaction. This strategy leads to a more rational and efficient allocation of financial and human capital. More importantly, it enables you to understand and appreciate the consultative and diagnostic attributes of Gilbert’s Risk Solutions. The Risk Shield Process™ offers a “unique” experience — a process focused to achieve balance sheet protection.
Our first interview sets the stage for the audit. We are extremely selective in choosing organizations to go through this process. It is important for us that our involvement is an enhancement to your associates and to your overall organization.
The Risk Shield Audit begins with an action plan which spells out the objectives, standards, and steps of the engagement. The plan serves as the blueprint for the audit and holds us accountable to each other.
Over the years, we have developed numerous tools and resources to support the audit process, including, but not limited to, culture surveys, compliance audits, and quantifiable risk assessments. These tools and others enhance our ability to effectively and efficiently identify exposures and mitigate risks.
The scope and duration of each audit depends on the size and complexity of your business. Each audit is customized using an array of tools, resources and strategies that best fits you.
IT IS OUR BELIEF THAT THE AUDIT IS AN INVESTMENT IN BUILDING A LONG TERM, TRUSTED RELATIONSHIP.
