The scene for 2016

Taking care of people is at the heart of everything we do at Sedgwick...
– from ensuring injured and ill employees have access to the right healthcare resources to meeting the needs of clients, consumers and the industry at large. We will continue to elevate the discussion around how caring for people through easily accessible and streamlined risk management, benefit and productivity solutions, and advanced technology can make a difference. In our industry, some of the key topics and areas that will likely have an impact on businesses in 2016 include employee health and wellness, new technologies for improving care and safety, legislative changes impacting claim costs and access to care, and unique market challenges and emerging risks. And while some claim-related issues can be predicted and mitigated, unforeseen events such as cyber attacks, terrorism and natural disasters will continue to pose greater risks.
