CareerPlug, an online job board, and applicant tracking system dedicated to helping business owners hire the people they need to grow their companies, surveyed job seekers on what they want to see in a hiring process. 500 people who have applied for a job within the last 12 months were surveyed and their answers about their experience during the hiring process were analyzed.
Regarding the insurance industry, “98% of job seekers in the Insurance & Financial Services industry rated “atmosphere of the workplace” as a “very important” or “important” factor influencing their decision to join a company. Why should employers care? People are retiring from the insurance industry at a high rate. Insurance businesses need to make a strong effort to appeal to job seekers who are earlier in their careers. Focus on becoming a great place to work and then showcase your employer brand throughout your hiring process.”
