Introduction

Managing different generations in insurance

Is there really a generational gap in Canada?

Yes! Well, at least many people feel there is in their day to day activities: the generation gap! This is nothing new in itself. That said, the gap seems a lot larger nowadays than it has been for the last 100 years. For example, people in their fifties and older, highly knowledgeable in general insurance, customer service ,  are now forced to face huge technological or procedural changes (like the “paper free!”). That means they have to change their habits and that often brings a lot of additional stress that nobody wants.

The younger generations who are 40 years old or less are usually hungrier for change and improvement, optimisation, new technologies and the challenges that they bring, and of course speed… It’s got to go fast! They are often ambitious, impatient, and too quick for their own good!

This course, “Managing different generations in insurance” aims to narrow that gap within the teams and allow employees of all ages to better communicate with members of another generation.
