Gallup not too long ago launched it’s annual Honesty/Ethics in Professions ballot. The excellent news? The class “insurance salespeople” is just not in final place. The dangerous information? The one “professions” that completed worse have been automobile salespeople and members of Congress. Should you click on on the hyperlink and scroll down the web page, you’ll discover Gallup ballot outcomes for the previous 40 years.
Why does the class “insurance salespeople” achieve this poorly? What constitutes an “insurance salesperson” within the thoughts of customers? Do they assume this refers to door to door term life insurance salesmen? Or is it a broader viewpoint that your entire business (L&H and P&C) is dishonest and unethical?
Should you have a look at the ballot outcomes for the previous 40 years, it’s clear this isn’t a current phenomenon. As an business, “insurance” has not been held in excessive esteem for at the least 40 years and possibly for much longer than that. Why? It might be good to have extra knowledge. THEN, maybe we might do one thing about it.
