Come to the Insurance Risk & Capital Americas conference in New York on Tuesday (26 September) and hear experts’ insights on effective ways the market can attract and retain talent.
The in-person event will be hosted by InsuranceERM and our sister publication Insurance Asset Risk, and will take place at Convene, 117 West 46th Street in New York, on 26 September.
Nurturing the future talent pipeline is a key issue on insurers’ minds worldwide, and practical ways to deal with the challenge will be discussed in-depth the Insurance Risk & Capital Americas conference.
In preparation for the event, panellists discussed whether in the post-Covid world, the balance of power has shifted and what this means for insurers, such as deciding the number of days employees should be mandated to work in the office.
Banking giant Citi, for example, has reportedly started monitoring how often its 12,500 staff in the UK work from the office.
Reuters also reported in April that JPMorgan asked managing directors to return to the office five days a week and warned other employees working on hybrid schedules that they needed to show up three days a week or face consequences.
One of the experts who will speak on the talent pipeline discussion told InsuranceERM: “Companies have to be strong enough to tell employees they need to be in the office whenever necessary.”
Progress made on diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) initiatives by the insurance industry and their implications for attracting and retaining talent in the sector will also be explored.
One panellist noted DEI was also a much broader societal problem in the US that insurers cannot address alone.
The panel discussion on nurturing the future talent pipeline will be held at 12.10pm on Tuesday 26 September.
Other topics to be discussed at the conference include:
- The future of artificial intelligence
- Geopolitics and the implications of a polarised political landscape
- Dealing with inflationary risk
- Navigating sustainability risks and opportunities
