CHICAGO – An aging workforce, increased retirements and low unemployment are all contributing to an increasingly competitive insurance industry talent market. Can implementing a talent management strategy help insurers combat these impending challenges? The Jacobson Group’s Greg Jacobson, co-chief executive officer, and Jaime Elgas, engagement director, will explore the importance of holistic talent management at the upcoming Super Regional P/C Insurer Conference in Lake Geneva, Wis.

The presentation will offer an in-depth look at the current demographic and employment trends impacting the insurance labor market, insights into holistic talent management, and best practices for implementing holistic talent strategies.
