With a large portion of the insurance industry set to retire within the next few years, insurance companies have a serious need for fresh talent—yet studies show that only 4 per cent of millennials see insurance as an attractive career choice.
Clearly, the insurance industry needs to rethink how it engages millennials with the jobs it has to offer.
This April, Insurance Business Canada’s Toronto conference Millennials in Insurance tackled the question of how to bring more millennials into the industry, and Ingle International CEO Robin Ingle was on hand to lend his expertise to the day’s first panel: “Back to Basics: How to Attract Millennials to the Insurance Industry.”
The discussion was moderated by Vinita Jajware, president of the Toronto Insurance Women’s Association, and looked at everything from leveraging technology into new roles to enhancing candidate perceptions of the industry. Robin joined panelists Margaret Parent of the Insurance Institute of Canada, Mark Edgar of RSA Canada, and Noelle Codispoti of Gamma Iota Sigma for a thought-provoking discussion on how the insurance industry can enhance the way it offers roles to today’s workforce.
