Insurance professionals believe “personal skills” are the most important competency requirement for fresh entrants to the profession to possess.
A social media poll of 800 CII members conducted in June saw 56% (446 members) stating that having the right attributes for successful social interaction was the key skill that people entering the profession needs to have.
Roughly a third (275 insurance professionals) said technical knowledge was the vital quality for those embarking on a career in the insurance profession to have.
The CII is consulting with the market to produce a “professional map,” which will be used to ensure the group’s learning, qualifications and membership journey meet future career needs and identify and fill any gaps.
The CII has already spent more than a year collating the views of more than 200 market and HR leaders to map the skills, knowledge and behaviours they believe businesses and individuals will need in the future.
