Let’s explore the great benefits of an international team
A large pool of applicants
Most insurance agencies are finding it difficult to recruit locally due to issues like the great resignation or an aging workforce, with fewer and fewer people applying for positions in the insurance industry. However, if you decide to build an international team for your agency, talent will be pouring in from every corner of the world. This means that you won’t have to stress about a small applicant pool instead having a large variety of interested applicants will help you pick the best candidate for the job. To make this process easier for your agency, Edge will take on the responsibility of hiring on your behalf and will handpick the best candidates for the position.
Diversity in perspectives
When your agency will have a team that is stretched all over the globe, it will give you access to multiple perspectives and innovative ideas to brainstorm about. As they say, “A diverse mix of voices leads to better discussions, decisions, and outcomes for everyone.”
Hassle free recruitment
As we know, recruiting in-person employees is a hassle of its own. Edge provides you with a permanent solution by carrying out the selection process, training on your behalf to provide you with a pre-trained team of remote employees to handle all their back-end and administrative work.
Greater focus on productivity
When you’re putting the most emphasis on hiring the best talent for your agency then there is a guaranteed chance that this will bring in a higher productivity rate. Employees will have the satisfaction that they have been hired solely for their talent and intelligence and will automatically want to perform better. The remote global team can carry out all front and back end tasks for your agency so, the producers can focus on maintaining the relationship with the clientele.
