A visit to the Ansay & Associates website will tell you that innovation is important. In fact, it is so important that the agency recently created a new executive position with "innovation" in the title. Innovation is not a word typically associated with the insurance business, so we were interested in hearing from Erik Mikkelson at this Wisconsin agency. While Erik is working to create new placement and operational processes, we were most interested in the firm's work with new tech startups as well as its intern program. "The focus of both of these programs all about understanding the next generation of insurance buyer and agency employee," says Erik. If you have ever considered setting up an internship, listen as Erik describes a successful program that currently has 12 college students working in the firm's seven offices.
