Jacobson Explores Workforce 2.0 at the ReSource Pro Operations Bootcamp

March 04, 2019

CHICAGO – The “future of work” is no longer just a buzzword, it is a business reality that is changing the work force as we know it. An increasingly complex and interconnected work environment is redefining positions, elevating the need for soft skills and demanding a new kind of leader take the helm. Tony Cañas, client advisor for The Jacobson Group, will share how organizations can adapt the way they think about talent and how they manage their workforces to stay ahead in the new landscape at the ReSource Pro Operations Bootcamp.


The presentation, “The Future of Work: Workforce 2.0,” is part of the event’s “Think like an InsurTech” master class and will take place in Las Vegas on March 11 at 3:15 p.m. PST. Attendees will learn about emerging challenges and opportunities for their organizations, as well as how to reenergize their recruitment and retention strategies to meet the needs of a diverse workforce.

“The industry is rapidly changing in response to existing trends, modernization and emerging new normals,” said Cañas. “Organizations must adopt new sets of skills to navigate a multitude of changes including shifting demographics, increased use of artificial intelligence and a more prominent gig economy.”

As a client advisor with Jacobson’s property and casualty team, Cañas provides organizations with the temporary staffing and subject matter experts solutions needed to effectively manage workload fluctuations, special projects and other short-term needs. Cañas is also co-founder and chief motivational officer of 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.
