Our promise: a dedicated tailored approach

Every organisation is different – different people doing a variety of jobs in a range of environments and locations. We work with you to ensure that the approach we take is tailored to you and your employees’ needs.


Quality protection advice

We believe in the value of meeting employees in the workplace. These private meetings provide valuable opportunities for employees to find out about our range of plans. Where a longer meeting is required we will always arrange an appointment outside of work hours so it will not interrupt their work.

Our advisory service is a professional and high quality service. It involves completing a ‘Fact Find’ to obtain full information regarding the employees’ circumstances. Only through this process can we make correct recommendations based on eligibility, suitability and affordability.


No administrative burden for you

Hive Corporate Services administers the whole programme. We ensure that when any insurance policies are purchased, all necessary documentation is completed and submitted.

As payment is arranged directly between Hive and the employee via Direct Debit there is no additional work for your payroll department. Our dedicated helpdesk is available to answer customer queries and offer support.


Marketing Support

To help promote your employee benefit programme, we can provide a range of marketing materials including posters and leaflets for in-house distribution.

Implementing: Step by step guide

  1. Initial discussion: our Business Consultant will hold detailed discussions with you to understand your needs, concerns and existing benefit programme. We can also meet with your management team and employee representatives to explain the service and agree the most suitable time and place to meet with employees
  2. Introductory communications to employees: introductory communication literature is distributed to explain our service and the Hive Corporate Services concept
  3. Employee meetings organised: individual meetings with our Business Consultants are scheduled to accommodate shift working patterns, satellite offices and field staff. Remember, our approach is always tailored to your needs and we can work around your schedules
  4. One to one meetings with employees: the benefit programme is presented to your employees and our range of insurance products are explained and made available. We are there to answer any questions your employee may have so they fully understand our services and products. Where a longer meeting is required, we will always arrange a separate appointment outside of working hours to minimise any disruption.
  5. Future reviews: regular reviews allow new employees to take advantage of the service being offered and help ensure that your benefit programme continues to meet the needs of your employees

Our benefit programmes are implemented at no cost to your company, unless you decide to pay for some of the premiums. Many employers choose to subsidise a proportion of the premiums, to enhance the employees’ benefits.

Great service as always.


Friendly company, fast response, I am satisfied with the services and contact.


Extremally efficient company to deal with, totally satisfied with Lynsey who always answered any query I had with accurate information. Would not hesitate to recommend them.


Rob is very easy to deal with. Many people at the yard I have my horse has signed up to Hive Insurance. Great plains available for small monthly payments.


I recently purchased equine insurance from Hive Insurance after a recommendation from a riding centre. Rob was very professional, knowledgeable, helpful and assisted in myself and my children all having cover before the end of the day! There were three options of cover to choose from.

I couldn’t be happier with my experience and have been passing his details to my equestrian friends.

Highly recommend!


As an ISSA member, I had an accident and put in a claim with Hive here in Ireland and I have to say, the service was great and really helpful, but the best bit was my claim was dealt with and paid out within a week! Couldn’t recommend them enough.


“With all sports, the risk of injury is always present and equestrian sport is no different and in the case of our yard, where the risk ranges from 128cm ponies through to Grand Prix horses, covering Riders, Grooms and Yard Staff the danger seems ever present. Therefore, these day every risks combined with the issues surrounding Irish equestrian insurance; the launch of the Equine Safety Initiative could not be more perfectly timed in my opinion. Furthermore, after a visit, Rob McOwan expertly and efficiently introduced and implemented the roll out of the ESI to everyone involved within our yard without any disruption. Highly recommend everyone involved in horses gets behind and supports this initiative as we will all benefit from it in the short and long term”.

“Having spoken with Rob at Hive, he was able to offer me a superb policy which gave me peace of mind to get back into the saddle once restrictions eased during the year. As an active member in the AIRC, I was delighted to recommend this initiative to all our club members as Hive’s customer service and expertise in the equine industry is second to none”.

“I am proud to be working with Hive Insurance Services as I think their approach to Irish Equine Insurance is breath of fresh air and very much needed within our industry.”

“Their alliance with all of the various equestrian governing bodies and their introduction of the Equine Safety Initiative (ESI) is just one example and I strongly believe that if we all get behind, support and promote this important safety program; given time, the Irish equine insurance market could change for the better, with less small claims burdening our equestrian businesses premiums could stabilise, even drop… can you imagine that!”
