 Insurance Thought Leadership

People don’t necessarily think about a career in insurance from the time they are five years old. So, how do we reach today’s job seekers? Many of them are less interested in job title and more interested in mission.

They want to be sure that the organization they join shares their values, beliefs and passions in areas like diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), the environment, social responsibility and governance (ESG), work-life balance and overall wellness.

The dramatic shifts in the workplace environment we’ve seen throughout the COVID-19 pandemic have brought the insurance industry to an inflection point.

Employers who recognize the importance of these issues will capture new talent and inspire their current workforce. Those who ignore it risk losing talent and more.

At the Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation’s (IICF) 2021 Inclusion in Insurance Forum, we brought together more than 600 industry professionals, executives, DEI leaders and wellness experts from the U.S. and Europe. We focused our discussion on how we can turn our best ideas on DEI, mental health and wellness and the future of work into reality.
