Ericson In The Face Of A Pandemic
The pandemic has presented opportunities for Ericson to check the force majeure status of the company. Most of the staff have dedicated themselves to remain available over all types of online platforms such as through phones and emails, and have kept providing service to the company’s policy holders round the clock, as they are well aware of the apprehension for the future and confusion of the present about health. People were not as serious about health insurance before this pandemic. This pandemic has created lots of awareness & people have started thinking as well as searching for efficient and effective service providers. This is resulting in better outcomes as well as growth for them and their customers.
Overall, the COVID-19 pandemic is a crucial event in the Indian history. The evident trails from the rest of the world were helpful for the management team to be prepared with response measures at the right time to tackle the COVID-19 outbreak and its future effects over business.
The pandemic has proved to be a new boom in the health insurance industry due to increased awareness over health assurance, and there has been a significant rise in health policy seekers.
Public-private relationships with channel partners like insurance brokers, insurance companies and corporates at various levels were found to have an effective outcome. This collaboration enabled Ericson to sustain its business counts rolling up during the lockdown period. Parallel to this, the entire team of Ericson TPA also took a step ahead with uninterrupted cashless support 24X7 and Claims Process with Payment Process for hospitals and policy holders. Altogether, despite it being a dreadful event, it boosted the morale of their business partners and gave them the confidence to count upon Ericson and resulted in better business prospects during and post the peak of the pandemic.

“This is the thought and attitude the team at Ericson Insurance lives by, “always say no to shortcuts”. You may see losses, get set back, fear of failure may ride upon you, frustration may take tight grip, shortcuts may look very tempting, but all these will never help in the long run. Industry always checks integrity, honesty, commitment, dedication & appetite of success before starting dependency. Show your talent in all these arenas & let the world recognize you. Lastly, have gratitude for all those good people who have gone before you, and those good people who now surround you, as they have brought you where you are.”
