In early 2016, Zurich North America teamed up with William Rainey Harper College in Palatine, Ill., to offer an apprenticeship in insurance program and now its first group of employee/students have graduated with a job at the company and an associate degree in business administration. Each graduate also received the designation as a Certified Insurance Apprentice through the Department of Labor's ApprenticeshipUSA initiative.
Al Crook, head of HR Business Partners for Chicago-based ZurichNA, says the participants are not the only ones who received an education through the implementation and completion of this inaugural program. The company, he said, has learned a lot and is eager to share its experience with other companies that are interested in what apprenticeship programs have to offer.
