ArgoGlobal has partnered with Italian insurance broker Axieme to provide gig workers with on-demand insurance cover.
Axieme is connected to the digital platform Jobby, which enables users to activate their insurance when they accept a job.
Mario Borrelli, underwriting director of ArgoGlobal commented: “The growth of the gig economy has created a shifting and unpredictable employment environment in which workers lack the traditional protections supplied by employers against unexpected events such as sickness, injury and civil liability,”
“Our innovative collaboration with Jobby and Axieme, which relies on cutting-edge digital technology, offers gig-economy workers across Italy with steadfast, trustworthy insurance coverage combined with pay-as-you-go convenience.”
To date, more than 4,500 hours of coverage have been provided to some 600 gig workers via this partnership.
