The Intersection of Diversity, Inclusion and Talent Development in Insurance

Are you finding talent development is more challenging than ever in insurance?

Want to know how Diversity and Inclusion can help your recruit top insurance talent and retain employees?

The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that nearly half of the current insurance industry workforce will retire in the coming decade. What’s more, industry research has found that only 4% of millennials are interested in an insurance career. This puts immense pressure on the labor market in the insurance field.
