Long before the Great Resignation, the title industry was struggling to find new talent to fill roles. With an aging workforce taking all their experience and knowledge into retirement, there’s been a scramble for the last several years to find ways to fill vacancies left by those who just “fell into title” and made a life-long career of it.
Florida underwriting counsel, Lindsay Hall Harrison, would say that we need to be more intentional about bringing fresh faces to the business and has made it part of her mission to introduce new people to the world of title insurance because she loves it so much. She says rather than perpetually stealing employees from one company or another, as they do the same to you, the answer to our dilemma is to seek the right candidates outside the industry. However, it’s important to identify specific personality traits that you can look for that will help you determine if a candidate will not only be successful but also fall in love with it and stick around.
In this episode, Amanda chats with two guests, Lindsay Hall Harrison and PropLogix HR and recruiting specialist, Jennifer Niccolai, to learn the skillsets and personality traits that will make a candidate successful in the title insurance industry.
