Insurers team with education and economic organizations to form new industry group
Specialty insurance companies in Indiana have partnered with education and economic organizations to form Northeast Indiana Specialty Insurers (NISI). The new organization aims to promote talent development, marketing, and advocate new opportunities within the regional insurance industry. The group was formed because of the high concentration of insurance workers in the region. This high concentration can make it difficult for individuals and organizations to take advantage of new opportunities, and some may lack the skills or experience needed to do so.
Northeast Indiana Specialty Insurers group seeks to promote new opportunities in the regional insurance industry
NISI has plans to work to protect existing jobs in the insurance industry by helping workers develop new skills, some of which will be in the realm of marketing. These skills are expected to help these people perform better in their roles within the insurance industry. NISI also plans to help create new jobs by working with insurance companies to form new employment opportunities. The organization will also focus on education, providing learning materials to schools and colleges in the region.
Organization will work with agencies to make sure Indiana has an attractive market environment
The organization will also be working with state and federal agencies in Indiana in order to make the state a more attractive insurance market. Advocating political measures that incentivize the purchase of insurance coverage or provide companies with certain benefits for doing business in the state are likely to be priorities for NISI. As the market environment improves, new insurers may try to come to the state, which will create new job opportunities.
Talent shortages are becoming major concerns for insurance companies
There has been some concern within the insurance industry regarding potential talent shortages. Without skilled workers, insurers are finding it difficult to engage consumers and manage their needs effectively. For some companies, a talent shortage could mean a less optimized claims process, while for others, a shortage could mean weaker marketing campaigns that have little engagement potential.
