Jacobson to Share Insights on Changing Demographics in Insurance

February 02, 2015
CHICAGO – The insurance industry faces monumental shifts as large numbers of today’s tenured professionals move toward retirement and the industry seeks to recruit emerging talent. With the ever-tightening talent market, it is vital that the industry focuses on attracting and retaining young professionals. Dave Coons, senior vice president at The Jacobson Group, will explore the current state of the insurance labor market during an upcoming meeting of the Northwest Chapter of the Society of Chartered Property Casualty Underwriters in Buffalo Grove, Ill.

“The talent market in insurance is heating up,” said Coons. “As Baby Boomers begin preparing for their mass retirement, recruitment of young professionals and recent graduates is key to future success.”

The presentation “The Changing Face of Insurance Talent,” scheduled for 5:30 p.m. on February 17, 2015, will include strategies to recruit the next generation of insurance talent, details on the changing demographics in today’s workforce, and an inside look at the industry staffing situation.

As senior vice president of The Jacobson Group, Coons provides leadership to Jacobson's professional recruiting, emerging talent, RPO, and temporary and temp-to-hire staffing practices. In addition to overseeing the day-to-day operations of these business units, Dave serves on the Executive Management Team and plays an integral role in the continued growth and development of the firm.
