Successful Employee Recruitment & Values




Hiscox, York


£25 Members / £30 Introductory Members


Urzula Dmochowska and James Scottwood, HR Team | Philip Thorn, Head of Direct Home Insurance, Hiscox

Recruitment is a difficult challenge for small business owners. With no direct HR function it's often down to directors to advertise a job, interview and ultimately choose a new employee with the right skills and who will work well with the existing team to complement what the business is striving to achieve.  

Hear direct from Hiscox's HR team welcoming Urzula Dmochowska and James Scottwood, alongside Philip Thorn, Head of Direct Home Insurance about how they attract and select the right people in their business. How the recruitment process works for them and why inductions and training are paramount to the future success of the business.

A modern business with traditional values – courage, quality, integrity, excellence in execution, and human. Together these values make up the 'Hiscox spirit' - ‘challenging convention’ and the team take great pride in living up to these values and actively challenge convention in everything they do. Their success relies on every team member doing so, whatever their job and wherever they work. These are the fundamental principles they believe in and are qualities they wish to be known for.  At the heart of this is a restless ethos to challenge convention in the insurance industry, through their operations and service to customers.
