Webinar to Reveal Results of U.S. Insurance Labor Outlook Study

February 03, 2014
CHICAGO – The Jacobson Group and Ward Group will reveal the results of the Semi-Annual U.S. Insurance Industry Labor Outlook Study in a complimentary webinar presentation on February 18, 2014, at 2:00 p.m. EST.

The study ran from January 13 through January 29, 2014, and attracted high participation from industry organizations across all sectors. The results of this study provide the insurance industry with timely information on labor trends and future staffing expectations.

“The overall outcomes from this latest iteration of the labor study are indicative of a stabling workforce and a return to pre-recession employment numbers industry-wide,” said Gregory P. Jacobson, co-chief executive officer of The Jacobson Group. “Armed with the valuable information garnered through the survey, insurers can gain insight into the strategies needed to recruit and retain talent for their organizations.”

The webinar will be presented by Gregory Jacobson and Jeff Rieder, partner and head of Ward Group. All members of the insurance industry are invited to attend at no cost. Register for the webinar here.
