GIF 2017 Day 1, LONDON : Facing the talent crisis by raising the young generation's interest towards insurance

The panel titled "Leaders of Tomorrow: Engaging and Developing Our Emerging Talent" has put under debate the talent crisis' issue, exploring the means of getting young professionals more interested by the insurance field. XPRIMM delegates at GIF 2017 have reported:



Dawn MILLER, President and CEO, AXA Insurance 
  • Insurance is everywhere around us, offering opportunities for the working force, for the talents, for graduates coming from universities
  • It is very important to bring talents together - to immerse the talents within the organizations
  • It is the responsibility of the top management to develop the training strategy and to create business KPI to evaluate the efficiency 
Zach BROWN, Principal and Portfolio Manager, MILLIMAN
  • Insurance is not the most popular career (place 18 in a LLOYD's study) 
  • There is no better substitute for training except for doing the actual project work 
  • We may not have a couple of years to develop a modern approach to attract talents towards insurance  
Monica TIGLEANU, Senior Financial Lines Underwriter, BEAZLEY
  • Proper mentoring and coaching are the best tools for developing talents in the insurance industry
  • High potential can feel trapped and with a burnout pressure. 
  • The company should open the discussion regarding the development of a particular talent
Clemens PHILIPPI, Regional Manager, Market Management, Asia, ALLIANZ
  • It is important to take people with hard skills and work with them to develop soft skills. 
  • For entering the top level, a talent should work in multiple countries and in multiple functions. 
  • In a period where it's all about innovation, we should find the means to raise the interest of the young generation towards insurance
The 2017 edition of the Global Insurance Forum, an industry benchmark event organized by IIS- the International Insurance Society, has started on 17 July in London and will close on 19 July. XPRIMM supports the Forum as Media Partner.

GIF 2017 presents a rich agenda, reviewing the main trends in the industry as well as the its future opportunities and threats and the new ways in which insurance providers may and will have to engage in increasing society's resilience.
