1. The Summer Lull

For some organizations or independent professionals, summertime is when business slows, giving them the opportunity to make necessary equipment repairs, stock up on inventory, and focus on administrative tasks. That window of calm and fewer customer interactions gives business owners ample time to review their existing coverage and consider if it suits the business in the months ahead.

2. Mid-Year Fiscal Reviews

For many companies, summer means assessing their financial performance and future needs to see if they’re on track to achieve their strategic goals. As insurance is a critical part of financial wellness and resilience, considering possible changes to operational risks or future financial investments based on performance in the first half of the year, adjustments to coverage can help the organization align with upcoming activities.

3. Strategic Planning

In addition to financial performance reviews, the middle of the year is typically when many business owners consider what issues and projects they’ll tackle in the year’s second half. While doing so, it’s sensible to prepare for risks that emerge as autumn and winter approaches, such as having more inventory on hand and the threat of weather-related damage to commercial property. 

It’s also an excellent time to take a broad view of your company’s risk management strategy and emergency preparedness measures to be ready for whatever comes your way.

4. Insurance Renewals

Many annual insurance policies come due for renewal at the midpoint of the year, making it the right time to review and update your company’s policy. That allows you to explore new coverage options, switch insurers, or seek a better rate.

5. Summertime Natural Disasters

Depending on where your company is located, summer isn’t always blue skies and sunshine. It also means the threat of tornadoes, wildfires, and other severe weather conditions. All the more reason to closely examine your existing insurance coverage to ensure you’ve got adequate coverage limits and update your business continuity plan.
