Insurance Recruiting Market Update – Demonstrate Employee Appreciation!

We are presently witnessing a change in the local insurance employment marketplace.  The market is shifting from an employer’s market to an employee’s market in many segments.  Salaries have been stagnant and workloads have been high in many insurance organizations.  Increased revenue and opportunity is prompting many independent agencies to add to staff, and experienced insurance professionals seeking Michigan insurance jobs are in high demand.

Now is the time for managers and principals to make sure they are focusing on human resource issues.  We hear a recurring theme from candidates of heavy workloads and not feeling valued by their current employer.  The recession is over, at least in the local insurance job market.  Salaries are creeping upward and there are more opportunities to consider than there have been in years.   A concerted effort to demonstrate appreciation of valued employees and balance work/life issues will go a long way toward reducing turnover at this time.
