February 01, 2018

CHICAGO – Millennials are taking the insurance industry by storm. How can today’s organizations successfully engage and develop this diverse generation beyond initial hiring? Tony Cañas, client advisor for The Jacobson Group, will serve as a panelist for the session titled “Cultivating a Leadership Pipeline at Your Company,” at the Insurance Business America Millennials in Insurance Event. The discussion will focus on engaging and training the next generation.

“Millennials are a very diverse and dynamic generation of professionals,” said Cañas. “It is critical for organizations to rethink their current leadership development and engagement processes in order to inspire Millennial employees.”

The session is scheduled for 1:10 p.m. on February 8, 2018, in New York City. Jody Queen-Hubert, director of apprenticeship and career services at St. John’s University, will serve as the moderator. The panel will also include Bryan Falchuk, head of claims at Hiscox USA, and Colin Haupt, senior vice president for employee engagement at PURE Group of Insurance Companies.

As a client advisor with Jacobson’s property and casualty team, Cañas provides organizations with temporary staffing and subject matter experts needed to effectively manage workload fluctuations, special projects and other short-term needs. Cañas is also the co-Founder and chief motivational officer at Insurance Nerds, a website devoted to providing talent development and career management advice to the insurance industry, and co-author of the best-selling book Insuring Tomorrow.
