How to attract today's top students for insurance careers

What is the future of insurance? Who will be the insurance leaders of tomorrow? As our industry evolves to keep pace with rapid changes in technology and the global economy, how do we convince young professionals to pursue careers in insurance and risk management?

“It's the people who matter most”

“There is so much focus on new technology and exposures,” said Susan Nepras, vice president for HSB's marketing services group. “Don't forget: it's the people who matter the most. Our employees, our customers and insurance partners. It's critical that we attract young professionals with the talent and creativity to help lead this insurance revolution.”

Identify and recruit top talent

HSB has been active to identify and recruit top candidates in colleges and universities for insurance careers. We've also invested in tech start-ups and acquired companies with young employees who share new skills, ideas and innovations.

“InVEST” in volunteer resource that helps
