Whilst the core fundamental principles of Insurance remain largely unaltered since the inception of W B Baxter Ltd, the way in how we conduct business has changed immensely.
The written word is essential when it comes to Insurance and so everybody needs copies of their policies. Insurance companies have been slow to move away from paper format but with more and more insurers offering electronic copies, we are increasingly sending policies electronically.
Before writing or sending out any documents to clients in the post we offer the opportunity of conducting business by email, helping to reduce our carbon footprint and also to help make sure your queries are dealt with in a speedier way.
Where possible, we look to attend client and insurer meetings by public transport, rather than car. We encourage recycling in the work place and are continually looking at ways to improve how this is done.
We proactively look for opportunities to support charities, whether it is from donations or from our staff participating in events. We also recognise the importance of sport in the local community and so support a couple of local teams by donations.
Baxters are proud supporters of Age UK. Age UK aim to improve the lives of older people by promoting positive attitudes towards older people and ageing, influencing public policies, promoting effective care and supporting independence, choice and opportunity for older people.
Throughout this year we have also supported many charities including Cancer Research, Ravenswood, Alzheimer's Society, Movember, Children with Cancer, Stroke Association and The Neuroblastoma Society.
