Millennial Business Owners: Prepared for the Worst

A survey by the Nationwide insurance company found that Millennial (that’s ages 18 to 35) business owners are better prepared for risks than earlier generations, good news for the insurance industry — and for employees at Millennial-owned businesses.

According to the survey:

  • 51% have a disaster recovery plan in place for the business
  • 84% offer employees some or all of the standard benefits: retirement, workers comp, medical, etc.
  • 42% have a written plan in case of cyberattack
  • 61% have a plan for business succession

All these numbers far outpace the rates for Gen X and Baby Boomers.

“If you think about the risks many Millennials have experienced and grown up with — everything from cyberattacks to an economic meltdown — it makes sense that they would be some of the most concerned individuals out there,” Mark Berven, president of Nationwide Property & Casualty, is quoted as saying in the survey announcement.  “They want to protect what matters most to them — their business.”
