The advantage of recruiting non-insurance workers as claims professionals

Source: canadianunderwriter.ca

Author: CADO Admin

For independent adjusters, the need to replace retiring workers is becoming more urgent.
 

“A number of our front-line adjusters are very senior, very talented and experienced,” said Paul Féron senior vice president for Ontario and Manitoba at ClaimsPro LP. “In the next 5 to 10 years, a significant number of them will be retiring and deserve to retire. We need to be implementing proper succession planning and mentoring programs.”
