Demographic research - coming fall 2018!

Demographic Research 2018The Institute has been conducting demographic research for the benefit of the industry since 2007, assessing the needs of employees in the industry, providing valuable information for industry employers to help them develop and implement talent management strategies. Our previous reports (2007, 2009 and 2012) have provided valuable insight into the current state and future talent needs of the Canadian p&c insurance industry.

In 2017, we embarked on our most ambitious study, replicating the 2007-2008 benchmark research and introducing an executive survey. The findings of the research are being published next month in Demographics of the P&C Insurance Industry in Canada, and a sister report, which includes the findings of the survey combined with a literature review, A Changing Workforce: Implications of Technological Disruption for the Insurance Industry in Canada.

Together, the two reports offer a full perspective on the talent and technological challenges facing the industry.

To launch the research, the Institute is hosting a free introductory webinar to discuss the WHY and HOW of the research, and to provide a general overview of the findings. Please register early to reserve a spot.

To further engage the industry in a conversation around the findings, Margaret Parent, Director, Professionals’ Division, and Michael Burt, Executive Director, The Conference Board of Canada, will be touring the country between October and November 2018. A full-day event is being planned for the GTA. Find out more and register today.
