Jacobson Shares Insights into How to Successfully Weather the Growing Talent Storm

September 13, 2016
CHICAGO – Currently, an uptick in retiring professionals and an aging workforce are creating a growing skills gap within insurance. Unfortunately, most organizations have not yet adapted their current workforce culture to embrace and engage the next generation. As a Millennial, Kylee Lacson, assistant vice president at The Jacobson Group, offers a unique perspective on this challenge. She will share her insights into best practices and strategies for developing the next generation of insurance talent at the 2016 Life Office Management Association (LOMA) Contact Center Symposium in Orlando, Fla.

“As more and more young professionals move into leadership roles, companies are learning that supporting and retaining emerging leaders requires a new way of doing business,” said Lacson. “Fostering Millennial leaders means redefining leadership itself.”

Lacson will present “Mission Possible: Engaging the Next Generation of Insurance Talent” at 12:00 p.m. on September 21, 2016. The presentation will include current challenges facing the insurance industry in recruiting and attracting young professionals and recent graduates, as well as best practices and strategies for talent attraction, engagement and retention.

As assistant vice president for Jacobson’s life and disability subject matter experts team, Lacson provides organizations access to professionals with functional expertise and consultant-level talent for special projects and short-term needs in accounting, actuarial, claims, compliance, marketing, risk management, technology and underwriting. Active in the insurance industry, Lacson has earned her Associate, Life Management Institute, and LOMA’s Associate, Customer Service, designations and is currently pursuing her Fellow, Life Management Institute, designation. Lacson was also a member of the inaugural Certificate in Retirement Essentials class in December 2014 and plans to complete the Fellow, Secure Retirement Institute, program when LOMA finalizes the remaining courses. She is also active in several additional industry organizations, such as the Association of Home Office Underwriters and the Society of Actuaries.
