Jacobson to Examine Methods for Hiring Innovative Talent

May 23, 2017

CHICAGO – In today’s fast-paced, ever-changing business world, innovation and flexibility are key to success. Within insurance, evolving marketplace concerns, shifting compliance demands and growing technology risks are driving the push for innovation. However, many organizations remain unsure of how to turn this idea into a workplace reality. Margaret Resce Milkint, managing partner of The Jacobson Group, will discuss key strategies to transform organizational cultures in order to promote innovation and recruit for entrepreneurial talent. She will present on these topics at the Insurance Accounting & Systems Association (IASA) 2017 Educational Conference and Business Show in Orlando, Fla.

“Disruption is the new normal in the insurance industry, and the ability to adapt to this near-constant state of change is critical for insurers,” said Milkint. “By focusing on hiring and retaining innovative employees, organizations are building the workforce needed to find success amid growing marketplace shifts.”

Milkint will present “Hiring for a Changing Market: Interview for Innovation” on June 6, 2017, at 9:45 a.m. The session will explore the current state of the industry, including trends impacting the talent landscape, and best practices and strategies for building an innovative culture through recruitment and employee engagement.

As managing partner of Jacobson, Milkint oversees executive management engagements across all industry verticals for the firm’s executive search practice. Her insurance-specific expertise is highly sought after, and she is regularly called on to share her insights with various industry associations and publications. Milkint co-founded the Women’s Insurance Networking Group (WING), a platform for leading industry females to network and celebrate success. In addition to her role with WING, Margaret serves as the U.S. committee chair for the Insurance Supper Club, which provides a network and forum for senior women in the insurance industry on a global basis.
