The Ohio insurance industry needs 26,000 skilled workers by 2020, according to a new workforce study cited by Lt. Governor Mary Taylor. “A growing economy and strong demand from Ohio’s insurance industry means 26,000 Ohioans have an opportunity to find a good paying job to support their family. The key message of this study is that we must ensure that enough workers are available for this crucial industry. If the workers are not attracted and trained, the industry will fail to grow to its potential, negatively impacting the overall Ohio economy. The workers themselves may not ever consider this opportunity without being properly introduced to it. That is why Insuring Ohio Futures is so important,” said Taylor.
Insuring Ohio Futures and InsuringOhioFutures.com seek to educate students, career-changers and military veterans about the career opportunities that exist in the insurance industry. The study identifies the need in each of more than 100 individual occupations, including actuary, claims, IT, marketing, sales and more.
