Get on Board with National Education Month

Toronto, ON (Feb. 1, 2018) – Attracting and retaining top talent is one of the major issues faced by insurance employers today. Ensuring new employees have the right tools and training to do the job is just one way employers can create a successful “onboarding” experience and the Insurance Institute of Canada has several educational courses, programs and seminars that can help.

During National Education Month, February 1-28, learn how the Insurance Institute’s programs can help create a successful onboarding experience for new employees as local Institutes and Chapters across Canada host seminars, networking events and meet and greet opportunities.

Education and career development will be the focus of these conversations aimed at helping employers ensure new employees have the right tools and training to do the job. The Insurance Institute has several educational courses, programs and seminars that can help employers with the onboarding process and help new employees gain highly relevant industry knowledge right off the start.

Events throughout the month of February will highlight our insurance industry onboarding programs including:

  • Insurance Fundamentals Seminars and Webinars;
  • General Insurance Essentials (GIE);
  • C11, the first course in our Chartered Insurance Professional (CIP) designation program;
  • CE OnDemand;
  • P&C Insurance Essentials for Executives.

For those wanting to explore options within the industry, the Institute has “mycareer” – an online career management resource. The career mapping and education pathways tools on mycareer can help new entrants, recent hires and employees map their unique skills, interests, strengths and work experience along the career path they are on, or the path they would like to consider. Employers can also find support to help employees with their insurance career goal-setting and on-going professional development.
