This month we are teaming up with our industry colleagues to commemorate the second annual “Insurance Careers Month.” This industry initiative unites members of the insurance community to raise awareness of insurance as a desirable career choice. With nearly half of insurance professionals expected to retire within the next 15 years, we realize how critical it is to attract young talent to our workforce. During this month’s awareness campaign, we joined others in inspiring the next generation by sharing intriguing facts, career insights, tips and general information about insurance.
So, why choose a career in insurance?
Opportunity and growth, according to OneBeacon Government Risks’ VP of Business Development Brad York.
Challenge, stability and satisfaction, according to millennial Laura Peterson’s InsureMyPath.com blog. Laura, a member of OneBeacon Government Risks, shares an inspiring story about joining the industry.
A commitment to educating tomorrow’s leaders. OneBeacon is committed to fostering insurance knowledge among students and supporting risk management programs across the U.S. Earlier this week, OneBeacon launched its annual scholarship program, which awards 16 graduating high-school seniors with $2,000 college scholarships for the upcoming academic year. This month we are also attending two college career fairs. Although located in different states, our goal at these events is common: offer career opportunities to tomorrow’s leaders and spread awareness about our industry.
