Jacobson Shares Strategies for Getting Ahead in the War for Talent

May 28, 2019

CHICAGO – With nearly non-existent unemployment, an aging workforce and a mid-level talent gap, the insurance industry’s war for talent is a harsh reality. Organizations are tasked with reevaluating their human capital strategies and developing innovative hiring solutions. Margaret Resce Milkint, managing partner of The Jacobson Group, will share how mutual companies can best attract, engage and retain top talent at the 2019 Guy Carpenter Mutual Company Seminar.

Milkint’s presentation, “The War for Talent: Strategies and Innovation” will discuss a number of industry talent trends and their impact on insurers. Attendees will uncover people-first talent strategies and considerations, and leave with an expanded toolkit for engaging and developing employees. The presentation will take place on June 17 at 3:00 p.m. EDT in Philadelphia.

“The industry is rapidly changing, creating both challenges and opportunities for insurers,” said Milkint. “Employers must not only understand these shifts, but also embrace them, while adjusting their talent strategies accordingly.”

As managing partner of Jacobson, Milkint oversees executive management engagements across all industry verticals for the firm’s executive search practice. Her insurance-specific labor-market 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, a platform for leading industry females to network and celebrate successes. She chairs the Million Women Mentors Women in Insurance Initiative. In addition, Margaret serves as the U.S. committee chair for the Insurance Supper Club, which provides a network and forum for senior-level women in the insurance industry on a global basis, and the U.S. co-chair of Dive In. She is also a proud trustee of The Actuarial Foundation and a champion for the Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation’s Women in Insurance Conference Series.
