Young Industry Talent
At the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America's Legislative Conference in Washington, D.C., Insurance Journal covered a young agent's panel where carrier executives discussed issues facing young agents today. Cynthia Young, president of Encompass Insurance Co., says supporting, training and recruiting new talent into the insurance industry and the agency system is everyone's concern. She says carriers are helping but more can be done. The Hartford's Neal Wolin says that while recruiting new talent into the insurance industry may be a challenge, once young professionals enter the business they usually stay.
