In a changing digital world, the value of a human agent in the insurance industry remains a constant. The agent continues to be a key facet in insurance distribution, providing sage advice to support the sale of complex products and offerings. In fact, intermediaries are the leading channel for selling insurance in the United States. Keeping agents engaged, productive, and happy is critical to any agent-driven carrier’s success, but there are hurdles.
