July 11, 2018

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 11, 2018--The 2018 third quarter iteration of the Semi-Annual U.S. Insurance Labor Outlook Study will begin July 11 and close July 27, 2018. The survey is conducted by The Jacobson Group and Ward Group, a part of Aon plc (NYSE: AON). In its tenth year, the labor outlook study continues to provide valuable insights on insurance labor trends and has become an accurate predictor of the industry’s staffing outlook.

“The insurance industry is coming face to face with an unprecedented talent reality,” says Gregory P. Jacobson, co-chief executive officer of Jacobson. “Virtually non-existent unemployment, an emerging skills gap and impending mass retirements of the industry’s continually aging workforce are challenging insurers to reevaluate their current staffing strategies. This survey will provide a baseline from which insurers can make necessary adjustments to build a successful workforce.”

Organizations across all sectors of the insurance industry are invited to complete the complimentary survey. Participation is confidential, and detailed results will be distributed to all participants at no cost. To complete the survey, follow this link: https://jcbsn.gr/LaborStudyInviteMKTG.

The survey results and analysis will be discussed in a complimentary webinar on August 22, 2018. All members of the insurance community are welcome to attend. To register for the webinar, follow this link: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/1951774268698896643.
