Jacobson Dives into Strategies for Attracting and Retaining Next Generations

February 07, 2019

CHICAGO – In today's battle for top talent, it's up to employers to attract and cultivate Millennial and Gen Z talent or risk losing them to the competition. How can today’s organizations successfully engage and develop this diverse generation beyond initial hiring? Tony Cañas, client advisor for The Jacobson Group, will discuss best practices for recruiting and retaining top talent from emerging generations during a webinar hosted by Insurance Careers Month and the Insurance Information Institute (III).

Millennials and Gen Zers are expected to make significant waves within the insurance industry,” said Cañas. “These young professionals require a new way of thinking, and it is critical insurance organizations re-think and re-energize their recruiting practices and strategies.”

The webinar, “Recruitment and Retention: Best Practices and Paths Not Taken,” is scheduled for February 20, at 11:00 a.m. CST. Cañas will be joined by Steve Weisbart, chief economist and senior vice president of research and education at III. The session will explore best practices for recruiting, retaining and developing young professionals.
