Allstate Business Insurance and Business Talent Group Meet Growing Demands of the “Gig Economy” with Insurance Solutions for Independent Consultants

Exclusive portal for BTG’s independent consultants offers solutions targeted to unique needs of small business owners who work short-term gigs

NORTHBROOK, Ill., November 14, 2017 – Allstate Business Insurance  and Business Talent Group (BTG) have announced a relationship designed to serve the specific needs of high-end independent business consultants in the BTG network. As one of the many benefits available to BTG’s independent consultants, the Allstate Business Shield for BTG program provides an exclusive portal through which consultants can acquire insurance solutions tailored to their unique needs.

“By placing valuable tools and resources conveniently in one place, we’ve created a one-stop experience for consultants,” said Mike Barton, president of Allstate Business Insurance. “We are committed to helping small business owners succeed and providing value beyond the insurance transaction. We help business owners manage the risks they face so they can focus on their clients, not their insurance.”

Insurance coverage for cyber security breaches, onsite liabilities and business property damage are some of the protections and services offered as part of the program designed specifically for BTG.

The Allstate Business Shield for BTG provides independent consultants with the protection they may need against conditions and events such as:

  • Risks associated with working from a home office
  • Liabilities while working onsite at a client’s location
  • Damage to their business property
  • Cyber security breaches of a client’s private and confidential information

The portal includes information to help independent consultants understand their most common business risks, access online tools for small business efficiency, and connect them with resources designed to help them as small business owners. BTG, the leading provider of on-demand business talent, is the first and only independent consultant network to offer the Allstate product bundle to its talent pool.

BTG Co-founder and CEO Jody Greenstone Miller said, “The strength of our business comes from the exceptional quality of our independent talent pool, which helps our clients work faster, smarter and more efficiently. Allying with Allstate—one of America’s most trusted brands—allows us to provide industry-leading tools and resources that help our consultants protect their businesses. That’s just one of the ways we intend to attract and support the absolute best independent professionals so we can help our clients solve critical business problems.”
