Residents in Greensboro, North Carolina, could see their local economy expand thanks in part to increased hiring by United Healthcare. WUNC reports that company officials announced that they plan to create new jobs for insurance professionals in the city, and these positions could provide tremendous opportunities to local employment seekers.
United Healthcare CEO Garland Scott noted that the business is growing, and new opportunities could become available in the near future for insurance specialists and other professionals throughout the area. Currently, the company is searching for qualified, skilled workers who can immediately contribute to the firm and deliver long-term support to further bolster the business' global reputation.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics noted that the country's insurance segment increased its hiring by 0.8 percent in January 2013 on a month-over-month basis. The industry presently employs 2.346 million workers, and employers around the nation could pursue talented professionals to improve their business efficiency.
Additionally, insurance industry expert Jay Rollins noted that insurance specialists provide valuable support to clients and firms.
"While underwriting holds strength throughout the industry, the damage due to increasingly inclement weather conditions and natural disasters in parts of the United States raises demand for insurance claims professionals to help manage unforeseen mishaps," Rollins said.
