In ancient Rome, 'burial clubs' covered the cost of members' funeral expenses and helped survivors monetarily. But modern day life insurance started in the 17th century in England. Life insurance was introduced in Bangladesh in the pre-independence period with the opening of business by the then American Life Insurance Company, popularly known as ALICO (now Metlife Alico). Although the business of life insurance has developed a lot over the years in Bangladesh, people still perceive it to be an underground business of sorts. It is also evident in the number of policyholders. According to insurers, only four persons out of 1,000 have a life insurance policy in Bangladesh. The number is 37 in India and 21 in Pakistan. In developed countries, an individual may even have four to five policies. People are still somewhat less interested about life insurance policies that can give them and their families a big support in the event of death or an accident.

Communicating One Metlife

...One MetLife 1. Which communication channels were mainly used to communicate MetLife’s message of “One MetLife”? Why were these channels d used rather than others? Answer: MetLife used videos to communicate their message of One MetLife. This was used to welcome all employees worldwide. These videos made them feel as if they were part of the company. I believe that a video is more welcoming then a letter or an email. 2. This organizational communication event occurred across many languages and cultures. What communication problems might occur in this situation? Answers: There are many types of communication problems that can occur in this situation. Since the employees are from all over the world language would be the number one problem. Not everyone speaks the same dialect of the language. The language some employees might have been looking for may not have been in the digital toolkit sent out. Employees may need people to translate for them due to the language barrier. 3. The process of acquiring another company is fraught with emotions, such as the loss of identity that Alico employees might feel. How would these emotions effect the communication activities used in MetLife’s integration process? Answer: This can affect all the employees working at Alico. Not many employees are happy when their company joins another. In order for those employees to feel more welcomed MetLife tried to make the process as easy as possible. I believe that MetLife......

Coping with Financial and Ethical Risks at American International Group (Aig)

...its damaged reputation. The best way for AIG to restore its credibility will be by increasing its transparency and accountability. This requires a more realistic assessment of its risks and liabilities. In 2011 AIG decided to increase its claims estimates for insurance policies that it had sold in the past, particularly those associated with its property and casualty insurance business Chartis. AIG increased loss reserves for these insurance policies by $4.1 billion, a move that eliminated much of its operating profit for 2010 but served to clean up its balance sheet. AIG began selling off some of its businesses in September 2008 to generate the proceeds needed to repay taxpayers. The company sold its American Life Insurance Division to MetLife for $16.2 billion, offered its Asia-based life insurer AIA Group as an initial public offering raising $20 billion, and sold its ownership of Nan Shan Life, the third largest insurance company in Taiwan, for $2.2 billion. The sale of assets continued for four years, ending in September of 2012. Additionally, AIG reached an agreement with the U.S. government, intending to end its involvement with AIG by the end of 2012. In early 2011 the government began selling off its 92.1 percent stake in AIG through stock offerings. Together the AIG and the Treasury released $8.89 billion in stock. In all, the U.S. government invested $182 billion in AIG. By the end of 2012, AIG had repaid the full amount back to the American people plus an......
