Recruiting beyond the risk averse
Modernizing graduates' perception of insurance
The Deloitte Talent in Insurance Survey 2014, produced in collaboration with Universum, explores intentions, aspirations, and associations in relation to insurance careers, based on a global survey of 174,000 business students from 2,000 universities.
The results show that insurance is not a popular career destination for business students. They also suggest that the industry may not be attracting talent with the creative or innovative mindset to safeguard its future success. To attract graduate talent, insurers should do better at exploiting their strengths, which they currently underplay.
Understanding the mindset of business students and their attitudes towards insurance is the first step to attracting graduate talent.
- Insurance is not a popular career choice
