The record-high interest in hiring from the middle of last year is continuing to grow, as 56.2 percent of insurers are planning to increase staff over the next 12 months, according to the latest “Insurance Labor Market Study” conducted by Jacobson Group, an insurance staffing company, and Ward Group, and insurance consultancy.

In July of last year, 54.5 percent of insurers intended to increase staff; in January of last year, the number was 51 percent. Expectations to grow revenue are also at the highest level since the survey began in 2009. Participants anticipate revenue growth 8.6 points higher than in July of last year, and 17 points higher than the January 2012 survey.
