Temporary Staffing Trends in The Insurance & Risk Management Industries

Temporary staffing continues to be a very hot topic in 2023. As one of the leading providers of temporary staffing solutions to the insurance and risk management industries, the team leading Questpro’s temporary staffing division is on top of all the latest trends.

Sometimes called “contingent workforce,” temporary staffing refers to a group of workers who are not permanent employees of an organization but are hired on a temporary or contractual basis to fulfill specific business needs. These workers are often brought in to address short-term demands, project-based requirements, or to cover workload fluctuations.

The need for temporary staffing is exploding and Questpro’s QTemps division connects outstanding candidates across the full spectrum of positions for many of the nation’s top insurance and risk management firms.

The following are some trends:

  • Increased Temp Demand for Specialized Talent

Temporary staffing agencies in the insurance and risk management industries have seen a rise in demand for skilled professionals with insurance expertise. As companies adapt to the evolving landscape of risks, they require skilled professionals with insurance-specific expertise – whether it be in claims, underwriting, business intelligence, accounting or even legal services.

  • Remote Work & Flexible Staffing

In many industries, including insurance and risk management, the COVID-19 pandemic seems to have permanently impacted work arrangements, leading to an increase in remote work and flexible staffing options. Temporary staffing has become an attractive solution for insurance and risk management companies looking to scale their workforces as needed.

  • Gig Economy Impact

The gig economy has influenced the temporary staffing landscape, with more insurance professionals opting for short-term contracts and freelance work rather than traditional permanent positions. This shift has also affected the way risk management and insurance companies manage their talent acquisition strategies.

  • Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives

Many insurance and risk management companies have been actively working to improve diversity and inclusion within their workforce. Temporary staffing arrangements may be utilized as part of these efforts to attract diverse talent and foster inclusive work environments.

  • Regulatory Compliance Challenges

The insurance and risk management industries are highly regulated, and compliance requirements can pose challenges for temporary staffing arrangements. Companies must navigate these regulations while ensuring they have the right talent to meet their operational needs.

  • Emphasis on Soft Skills

Beyond technical expertise, there has been a growing emphasis on soft skills such as communication, adaptability, and problem-solving in temporary staffing hires. Insurance and risk management roles often require effective communication with clients and the ability to navigate complex situations.
