Sedgwick introduces UK resource division

Sedgwick has announced the launch of resource division to help clients with both temporary and permanent placements across various claims-handling units, in response to a post-Covid increases in claims volumes and skills shortages in the market.

“Our resources team can provide both temporary and permanent solutions for our clients,” said Adam Baylis, Sedgwick head of UK resource solutions. “With regard to permanent solutions, our excellence in claims management has prepared us well to handle the hiring of claims, loss adjusting and other specialty resources. This gives us a distinct, strategic advantage over general staffing agencies.

The solution was initially developed at the end of the first quarter of 2022. Since the development phase, the Sedgwick resource solutions team in the UK has grown from nine to 24 members.

“The timing is now right to firmly establish Sedgwick’s resource solutions,” added Paul White (pictured), Sedgwick CEO in the UK. “As the claims environment evolves and client demand in this field grows, we needed a long-term approach to maximise this opportunity. It’s part of our growth and diversification strategy to protect colleagues and businesses, now and in the future.”
