What Makes Us Different?
As a small or medium sized insurance agency, I’m not sure that you appreciate what a significant recruiting advantage you gain by offering remote, work at home arrangements. Particularly with Account Managers and Account Executives, you’re really up against it when competing against alpha houses and larger brokers for the same people. Those firms have some serious talent acquisition resources:
- Deep pockets
- Human Resources analytics
- Cloud service recruiting software
- In-house recruiting teams
- Brand recognition
If you find it difficult to hire experienced insurance candidates you must figure out What Makes You Different. Forget about salary, bonus, benefits or PTO. Creating a strong telecommuting policy could be the most attractive carrot you dangle to prospective and existing employees.
