Established in 1987, Union Assurance is one of the largest providers of life insurance solutions for Sri Lanka, committed to providing protection, financial security, and creating wealth for their clients, whilst also adding values to its employees, field staff, business partners, shareholders, and community. Offering a comprehensive range of solutions that encompass investment, protection, retirement, education, health, and employment, Union Assurance seeks to support the dreams of Sri Lankan people by providing them customized solutions to meet the uncertainties of life. Since its inception, Union Assurance ethos has evolved to become the protector of the Sri Lankan dream under the brand’s philosophy, ‘Your Life, Our Strength’. The Company has positioned itself to protect the lifestyles, relationships, and ambitions of its clients, regardless of the inevitable complications that arise throughout a lifetime. Caring remains an integral value of Union Assurance, alongside Trust, Excellence, Ethics and Integrity, Innovation, and a customer-centric mentality that encompasses all of these values. As consumers around the world become more digitally aware and attuned to the rapid evolution of economic and social landscapes, Union Assurance’s customers are also becoming more aspirational, with clearly defined goals of what they want for themselves and their families, now and in the future. A key part of Sri Lankan culture is the creation of inheritances, and the firm’s diverse clientele across the country and socio-economic backgrounds are becoming more aware of life insurance as an alternative investment opportunity to achieve their financial ambitions. While Sri Lanka has trailed behind in innovating its products, servicing capabilities, and distribution in this market, it is clear that the potential for growing and innovating the financial services sector is ready to be maximised. Union Assurance is stepping out of the norm in its market and driving forward innovation, making it its mission to bridge the gap between its techsavvy customers and the less advanced industry. By transforming itself to become a more digitally enhanced, customer-centric life insurer with better, tech-enabled products, services, and platforms, Union Assurance is leading the way for the Sri Lankan market in helping its customers to achieve their financial goals and live comfortable, protected lives. However, as an industry that requires long term commitments in a developing market, this is largely viewed as an impediment. Moreover, the concept of mitigating ‘pure risk’ is also misunderstood, with many consumers demanding immediate returns on premiums they have paid, making the whole concept a significantly more expensive proposition. All of this is compounded by the aggravation caused by issues in transparency, complexity, and tedious processes, as well as uncertainties in the stock market caused by over-dependence on stock market-related products and short term, fly-by-night operators. Dealing with such problems has been somewhat impeded in latter months as a result of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, which has not only created challenges in operating in this environment, but also had significant impact on the livelihoods, and therefore the paying capacities, of consumers. However, Union Assurance’s strong foundations, innovative mindset, and digital preparedness meant the firm was able to proactively adapt to the pandemic, not only surviving as a business but thriving and growing. Over the past year, Union Assurance has been recruiting more than ever, welcoming Financial Advisors and Insurance Officers in large numbers, as well as talents across other industries who are able to provide fresh perspectives and ideas for growth. Insurance is fundamentally a sector that centres around people and as such, a defining feature of an exceptional insurance provider as opposed to a good one is the quality of its people. For Union Assurance, its people are its greatest asset. CEO Mr Jude Gomes states that it is his job to empower them, giving them the platform and resources to develop and maximise their potential. Only in an environment where each member of the team feels safe and trusted can the innovation that is vital to Union Assurance’s success flourish, even in the face of adversity or complications. The result is an internal culture that gives individuals the space to make their mistakes and learn from them, giving them the drive to outperform their key deliverables and exceed expectations of their clients. “The remarkable results are a tribute to our winning team, which I am proud to be part of,” says Mr Gomes. Mr Gomes himself joined Union Assurance in December 2019, bringing with him nearly thirty years of rich experience in financial services accrued working across key Asian

What do you specialize in? What is your unique selling point? What are your goals and values? Cameron Barrett, CEO of Field Safe: Most Boards of Directors and CEOs have mandates to improve employee safety, lower operating costs and expand digitization efforts to create efficiencies across the organization. Field Safe’s success in becoming a leading health and safety platform provider is due to helping our clients meet (and even exceed) all three of these mandates, or, as our tag line says, SAVE TIME, SAVE MONEY AND SAVE LIVES. “Field Safe helps Boards and Executives (including the CEO) meet corporate mandates.” The key to our success is data and our ability to relay it quickly and easily by digitizing at-risk workersto connect them to head office and other team members. Field Safe understands that health and safety information, when managed effectively, will impact decision making across the organization. Field Safe’s most important key differentiator is our ease of use. Companies struggle to get at-risk workers to complete and submit the paperwork that is foundational to ensuring their safety. Because our software is so easy to use, adoption rates are high and forms are completed and submitted, providing managers the data they need to quickly and cost effectively improve safety performance and operations. We support workers in any industry and companies of all sizes, but another reason for our success is our unrivaled understanding of the unique needs and challenges of Enterprise-level accounts. We have extensive experience meeting their stringent procurement processes. With more than 10 Fortune 1000 clients and partners, Field Safe continues to evolve our marketleading position based on a scalable, secure, and stable digital platform. Field Safe and The Connected Worker Field Safe’s easy-to-use safety platform and smarter workflows methodology digitizes the field to connect workers. This resolves the field data gap and enables Cameron Barrett: Focusing on ACTION and People to Take Workforce Safety to New Heights instant communication and information sharing. Ease of use increases user adoption and forms completion and submission which in turn increases the amount of data collected. That data is then shared in realtime across all team members and head office. The improved access to data allows leadership to make data-informed decisions that improve safety, optimize operations and lower costs. Field Safe’s all-in-one health and safety system does away with the inefficiencies of multiple systems and paper-based processes. Smarter workflows reduce the touchpoints that slow down the transfer of information. Emerging threats are identified immediately, and corrective actions are implemented fast. Field Safe’s primary goal is to help companies ensure the safety of their workers. We I hold an MBA from Heriot-Watt University, an MSc (Law) from Abraham Lincoln University and an ICD.D designation from Rotman School of Business. I currently Chair the Governance and Nominating Committee of the Huntington Society of Canada and am an Independent Director. I am also a member of the Board of Directors of headversity. Giving of my time to support worthwhile causes is my passion and the Huntington Society is particularly important to me. I am dedicated to making a difference here. I have also served as a Board Member of the Information Technology Association of Canada. I credit my success as a CEO on my attention to bringing together the right people to help me meet my mandates. My first order of business in every role is to build the right team to ensure the organization’s goals are met, and who shared my passion and vision for the company. I also credit my mentors and peer network for helping me grow and learn as a leader. I have built a network that I engage with regularly to learn from, but also to share my knowledge with, as well. Q:What is your approach when undertaking a new client or project? How do you ensure - right from the start - that the outcome meets the needs of everyone involved? CB: Field Safe begins every new client onboarding with a view to establishing a partnership. We focus on understanding each client’s current state and desired future state, acting as a trusted advisor to share advice after LISTENING closely and understanding their unique needs. It is these close relationships and resulting knowledge sharing and feedback that have helped us build an industry-leading platformthat is easy-to-use, all-in-one, and health and safety focused. But technology alone isn’t the answer to a best-in-class safety program. Processes have to be effective and aligned with health and safety goals. This understanding led Field Safe to develop our smarter workflows methodology. We conduct a review of each client’s processes and workflows prior to implementing any products. This review inevitably uncovers opportunities to implement change management initiatives to create smarter, more effective workflows. Forms consolidation is a common improvement. For one client, new workflows led to a reduction in required forms by almost half. Another cites a savings of over 1100 completion hours per year for each of its 30 forms. And another has reduced revenue leakage by introducing new workflows that allow it to digitally understand well production and deploy maintenance teams more optimally. Q: Tell me about your business and your ongoing strategy. What techniques do you employ to ensure you achieve this? CB: Today’s Field Safe has evolved substantially since inception but we always stay true “Field Safe helps Boards and Executives (including the CEO) meet corporate mandates.” are dedicated to ensuring the continuous improvement of health and safety programs that help organizations SAVE TIME, SAVE MONEY AND SAVE LIVES. Our corporate values support that goal by creating ACTION. • Accountability, • Commitment, • Teamwork, • Innovation, • Ownership, and we are • Nimble. Q: Talk me through your previous roles and how you came to achieve your position as CEO. How do you draw on past experiences in your current role? CB: I am currently the CEO of Field Safe. My 25+ year career includes national and international sales leadership roles within industry-leading software and technology companies. Prior to Field Safe, I was President of Computer Sciences Corp. (CSC) Canada where I led over 800 employees. 4 APAC / Issue Q4 2021 APAC / Issue Q4 2021 5
