Tomorrow’s Talent Challenge Insurance Media Call

In 15 years, nearly half of insurance professionals will be ready to retire. Without enough entries into the insurance talent pool to make up for those departures, insurers, agencies and industry groups across the country are mobilizing to close that gap and recruit the next generation of top talent to best serve consumers.

Doing so requires a concerted effort to appeal to millennials—who already make up 25 percent of the U.S. workforce and are expected to account for 50 percent of the global workforce by 2020—and to recruit talent with the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills that insurers will need to compete in the future.
