Chicago, IL (PRWEB) December 12, 2016
One of the primary drivers behind HPN and Rekroot’s mission is to develop innovative resources to help the financial services industry attract, develop and retain the next generation of financial professionals.
The average age of a financial advisor in the life insurance and financial services industry is 57 years old. The industry's four-year retention rate is only 13% and has not improved in two decades. Those in the older half of The Baby Boom generation, comprising some 78 million Americans, are approaching retirement age and have already retired or are thinking seriously about retiring. This creates a big negative impact on the financial services industry.
"The Baby Boom generation has been the backbone of the industry for the past 30 years and now as they start to retire, we see a big problem in the industry,” said Harry Hoopis, CEO of Hoopis Performance Network. “This partnership with Rekroot has been invaluable to us as well as the industry as we provide resources to attract this next generation of sales talent."
In the next year, Rekroot will expand on their live workshops, web series, consulting, personal coaching and guest speaking appearances to deliver the most up to date trends in recruiting for the financial services industry.
"We are excited to continue to grow with Hoopis Performance Network delivering best practices and education around recruiting and selection in the financial services and insurance industry," said Morgan Freitag, Co-Founder of Rekroot.
Co-founded by Kimberly Buck and Morgan Freitag, Rekroot focuses on delivering personal coaching to companies looking to improve or revamp their recruiting processes. The company has a strategic effort in keeping their clients up to date with trends on sourcing, attracting your ideal candidate and candidate experience. With over 17 years of combined experience, the common goal is to deliver best practices around recruiting and selection in the Financial Services and Insurance Industry.
