Time for a Career Change? Here’s What To Look For | Acrisure Viewpoints
In a booming labor market, more workers than ever have decided it’s time to look for a new role. The U.S. Department of Labor reported over 11.3 million job openings earlier this year. With ample opportunities available, it’s up to job seekers to decide what type of work experience they’re looking for next—and sometimes the choices can be overwhelming.
So what sets some companies above the rest? To find out, we spoke with Acrisure Partner Odell Studner in Pennsylvania, which has clinched the Business Insurance Best Places to Work Award for ten years running. They’ve racked up other distinctions like Captive Broker of the Year and 40 Under 40 in Business Insurance over the years, too.
“One of the best things about working for Odell Studner is how leaders prioritize work-life balance,” said the firm’s Gavin Studner. “Our executives understand how important it is for us to have that time to spend with friends and family."
In fact, 39% of workers surveyed in 2022 said that work-life balance was the most important element of their job. Another key factor that job seekers shouldn’t compromise on is culture. You spend most of your time at work, so look for a company that offers and promotes a strong workplace culture.
