In industry news:

According to the latest iteration of the Semi-Annual U.S. Insurance Labor Outlook Study conducted by The Jacobson Group and Ward Group, 65 percent of companies polled intend to increase staff in 2015. Additionally, the Bureau of Labor Statistics has reported the unemployment rate for the insurance industry is at 1.6 percent, with tech, claims and underwriting positions most in demand. Nearly 79 percent of organizations expect an increase in revenue throughout the upcoming year, which, if realized, should result in a 1.98 percent increase in industry employment during the next 12 months.
