BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.
To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.
To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

What advice would you give to someone starting out in the business?

What should the industry do to attract more young people to work in it?
One of the things I’m impressed with in the insurance industry is that there are a lot of people with 20, 30, even 40 years of experience. Finding ways to maintain that longevity of knowledge but then bring in new individuals with less experience and keeping them engaged is a challenge, but it can be done. A lot of our clients are taking steps with alternative work options and also understanding that younger generations are looking for something different from the work environment. Finding ways for building engagement and making the workplace part of the bigger community that individuals are part of overall is important in building that engagement.
