Spain is used to long working days. It’s normal for employees to start at 9 or 9.30 and finish around 20:00 – It does include a nice lunch break from 13:30 to 15:00 though. This also applies to the insurance industry there of course.  

Today, I would like to speak about Liberty in Spain. As you know, Liberty is a traditional US insurance company. Not exactly a startup! They have a very long-standing experience in the industry and could be considered quite conservative.  

Now, things might be on their way to change. Indeed, Liberty Seguros (Liberty in Spain) will allow its 2,000 employees in Europe to telecommute permanently. They are investing heavily on technology to adapt to the new normal and improve their employee’s experience. This will allow their workforce to become ‘digital nomads’ around Spain. You can expect to hear about engagement and training platforms that they will be deploying to address their new needs. 

However, some senior managers around the world still doubt the remote working model. It is a great model, but it is not for everyone. 

At INGAGE, we have been a ‚digital-first‘ company from the start. It is in our DNA. We help our clients digitize their training, their academies. We address their needs to generate content in a very dynamic way that will be available on demand for their employees, clients and salesforce. We look forward to seeing Liberty Spain’s result at the end of the year.
