“As demand continues to far surpass the supply of industry professionals, the insurance recruiting climate is becoming more and more challenging. As a result, insurance organizations must rethink their current talent strategies and practices,” says Gregory P. Jacobson, co-chief executive officer of Jacobson. “The results of this survey will help them better manage their staffing and recruiting strategies.”
The survey began on July 8 and is set to close on July 24, 2015
In the previous semi-annual report released earlier this year, Jacobson and Ward reported that optimistic expectations about market-share growth were fueling strong hiring trends in the property/casualty insurance sector in particular, with more than 60 percent boosting staff counts in 2014 and nearly three-quarters of commercial P/C insurers expecting to increase staff in 2015.
Organizations across all sectors of the insurance industry are invited to complete the confidential survey, Jacobon and Ward announced. All participants will receive a complimentary report detailing the survey results. To complete the survey, follow this link: http://16.selectsurvey.net/McLagan/TakeSurvey.aspx?SurveyID=l8KL697.
The results of the survey will be revealed and analyzed in a complimentary webinar on Aug. 11, 2015. All members of the insurance community are welcome to attend. To register for the webinar, follow this link: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/8755446643908186369.
The Jacobson/Ward survey has provided insurers with information on labor trends since 2009.
