Being an independent agent allows you to find innovative ways to shape the insurance industry’s future by hiring a new group of people.
It may seem scary and uncertain to take a risk and hire outside of the insurance industry, but we all have to start somewhere, so why no be the leader that helps bring in a new era of producers and agents. As long as the persons have the drive and potential to become great insurance agents, there’s no reason not to hire outside the industry.
Bringing in the younger generations
The younger generations, millennials and gen Z, are an untapped resource that can bring a new perspective on how we operate and open up new opportunities to reach new clients. Millennials, in particular, are looking to rethink the entire work industry, how we look at customer service, sales, and marketing. There is a lot to gain from hiring younger generations for your agency.
Hiring young professionals for your agency won't be hard. There are aspects of the insurance industry that appeal to the younger generations, like being a recession, and now, pandemic resistant industry. Having young professionals on your team will also open up new avenues for reaching younger clients, who are famously underinsured. It's a win-win growth strategy.
