CHICAGO – An aging workforce, growth in job openings and low unemployment rate are creating an increasingly challenging and competitive talent market within the insurance industry. Greg Jacobson, co-chief executive officer of The Jacobson Group, will explore the factors contributing to this tight labor market, as well as provide strategies and best practices for recruiting and retaining the next generation of talent at the 2015 Alliance Investment Mid-Year Meeting in Oak Brook, Ill.
