CHICAGO – A number of emerging talent trends – including a rapidly aging workforce, a growth in job openings and a low unemployment rate – are creating a competitive talent market within the insurance industry. Joyce Dunn, vice president and engagement director of The Jacobson Group, will explore these trends along with strategies and best practices for recruiting and retaining talent at the 2015 Property Insurance Plans Service Office’s Accounting, Information Technology & Human Resources Conference in Naples, Fla.

“The insurance industry is in a state of flux,” said Dunn. “The talent landscape is shifting, and we are faced with an increasingly challenging labor market in terms of recruitment and retention.”

Dunn will present “Recruiting Talent in a Hot Labor Market and Tips on Succession Planning” at 10:00 a.m. on October 8, 2015. The presentation will include an in-depth look at industry staffing predictions and growth estimates, data on the aging workforce population, and strategies for implementing a succession plan.

As vice president and engagement director, Dunn manages C-level, vice president and other executive-level searches exclusively for life, health, property, casualty and reinsurance organizations through the firm’s executive search practice.
