WiRe Salary Negotiation Information Session Attracts Large Audience of Reinsurance Professionals

More than 70 women turned out yesterday for the Women in Reinsurance (WiRe) salary negotiation seminar. The free seminar, led by Sylvia Jones, Director of Elevate Executive Selection, a local executive search and recruitment company, was organized by WiRe to help industry professionals learn strategies and techniques to assist them in negotiating their compensation packages.

"The timing of the seminar is ideal for the reinsurance industry since many employers and employees negotiate salary packages at this time of year," said Ms. Jones.

The discussion provided attendees with advice on how to determine their worth by recognizing their bottom line, prepare beforehand to avoid mistakes and handle counteroffers. Ms. Jones also addressed managerial concerns and touched on topics, including advocating for deserving employees and how to hold tough conversations.

"WiRe has been working hard for our members by hosting events that offer relevant information to strengthen our professional development which benefits the industry as a whole. We've had an enormous response from our membership with this topic and were pleased to welcome other women from the reinsurance sector yesterday," said Rachael Ashford, member of WiRe's events committee.

WiRe and Elevate Executive Selection would like to extend their thanks to XL Catlin for providing the meeting space for this event. Without the support from our members' companies we would not be able to stage such events.
