February is Insurance Careers Month
Started in 2015, Insurance Careers Month is an initiative which aims to bring awareness about recruiting the next generation of insurance professionals.
There might be 400,000 vacant positions in the insurance industry by 2020 thanks to a mass retirement of baby boomers, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. In recent years that has led to rapidly accelerating efforts to attract new talent. This has spawned initiatives such as the Insurance Careers Movement, in which companies have united to promote industry employment via social media, webinars and other platforms; and MyPath, which educates students and young professionals about insurance and its career opportunities.
On February 20, 2019, a webinar “Recruitment and Retention: Best Practices and Paths Not Taken” will be presented by the Insurance Information Institute and the Insurance Careers Movement. Register here.
Podcast: Tackling the top talent issues facing the insurance industry. Insurance consultant and trainer Troy Korsgaden sits down with PC360 to discuss hiring obstacles and recruitment strategies in this podcast.
