It’s All About Content
A more immersive reading experience? We’re glad you asked. A cleaner layout and typographic design keeps your focus on the content. The “infinite scroll,” simplified navigation and Google search make finding interesting articles easier. And no matter your screen size – PC, tablet or phone – the site is optimized to ensure the same great experience.
The benefits of the site are mostly self-evident. But a few features are worth highlighting to help get you started:
Current Section: Displays the issue, topic, author or section you are currently viewing.
Content Ribbon: Lists all of the articles in the current section. Easily browse the articles and click on any tile to load that article into the infinite scroll.
Infinite Scroll: Read each article from top to bottom without having to click to continue. The next article loads automatically so you can continuously read/browse an entire issue or section – similar to how you read a print magazine.
Full Screen: Click the arrow to hide the content ribbon and create a clutter-free article reading experience. Also handy for smaller screens or tablets.
More Ways to Explore
Nav Bar: Click the gray bar to reveal several filters, sections and topics that tailor articles to your interests.
Authors/Topics: Reading an article you like? Click on the author’s name to see all of their content or click on one of the topics to load that section.
Google Search: Still not finding what you want? The search bar slides out to help you find it.
Responsive Design (Mobile Optimized)
The site utilizes a responsive design. That means the layout automatically adjusts to different screen sizes. You can see the technology in action by adjusting the size of your browser window. It’s pretty cool.
But responsive design is more than just a neat trick. It ensures that our new site looks great and works well on all screen sizes. Call us a website or, if you like, a web app – the site combines the benefits of the free and open web with the elegance of an application.
More to Come
But we are not done yet. The site enables us to integrate new content types into our stories. Over the next year, you will see more charts, graphs, infographics, videos, photos, etc. And an entirely new editorial program called “Risk Insider” is launching in April.
Be sure to sign-up for one of our newsletters to stay abreast of all these developments as well as the latest articles and content we publish.
In the meantime, we would love to hear your feedback about the new site or anything else we do. Write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Risk & Insurance
Who We Are
Risk & Insurance® covers the people, stories and risks that embody the essential functions of risk management and commercial insurance.
What We Do
Some people think of risk management and commercial insurance as staid and dull. Even some insurance executives believe their industry is inferior to the power of Wall Street or innovation of Silicon Valley.
That’s where we come in.
We see Risk as the most pervasive challenge facing business leaders. The world is becoming ever more interconnected and developed while the speed of technological innovation increases and societal unrest grows. The result is the proliferation of new risks at an almost incalculable rate, global turmoil caused by regional events and the correlation of previously independent risk categories.
Without risk mitigation and transfer, primarily through insurance, our economy and society would not exist as we know it. No other profession and industry is so integral to global commerce or impacted by world events.
So what’s not to love?
Risk & Insurance® strives to identify emerging risks and mitigation strategies, while covering the fascinating people who drive the industry forward. We obsess about the myriad ways insurance plays a vital role in our economy. Our goal is to not only inform and help our readers succeed in their careers but also to inspire and motivate.
To accomplish this goal, our coverage is rooted in a set of defining principles:
- Insurance is Vital.
- Risk is Compelling.
- People Matter Most.
- Storytelling Applies.
- Creativity is Essential.
- Positive Outlook
Topics We Cover
While our approach and tone are our most important differentiators, we also provide expert coverage of core topics such as property and liability as well as the many specialties that comprise the risk management and commercial insurance universe. In addition, we are well known for covering specialized risks faced by a multitude of industries such as Energy, Transportation, Construction, Health Care, etc.
Workers’ Compensation and the large ecosystem of related specialties is an area where we particularly excel. Combined with our conference, The National Workers’ Compensation and Disability Conference and Expo® and our dedicated micro-site, The WorkersComp Forum®, our coverage is unmatched.
