“Finding and keeping qualified staff is the top challenge for many independent agencies, and we’ve pulled together a powerful arsenal of tools and technology to help our members fight this battle on all fronts,” says Nick Fyntrilakis, MAIA's President and CEO. Big “I” Hires is a comprehensive, one-stop resource that provides a full set of tools for agencies to identify, recruit, hire, and assess top-performing producers and CSRs. “Big ‘I’ Hires, combined with MAIA's suite of staff development resources, gives our members a number of ways to find and keep great people for their agencies,” said Fyntrilakis.
Agents around the country have been using Big “I” Hires with great success. Here’s what a North Carolina agent had to say:
“Just a quick word about Big ‘I’ Hires.... I started using it one week ago to fill an entry-level position. We have had 350+ people apply. The assessments it does are invaluable and have greatly reduced time the HR Consultant has to spend sorting. I told her exactly which profile I know I need for this position. It is an excellent tool and platform. I did the bottom level pricing. Serious bargain!" — Michelle O'Connor, ISU O'Connor Insurance Associates, Inc.
