How the Right Expert Profile Leads to a 95% Service Level Rate in Handling Claims

Teleperformance - 06.24.2024

The insurance industry continues to face a massive hurdle: finding, attracting, and retaining top talent. The industry’s ageing workforce has led to this challenge – the latest U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data show that the median age of the insurance industry workforce is 44 years. 538,000 employees in the industry are aged 55 to 64, and 186,000 are 65 and older.

The outlook, however, for the insurance industry employment for 2024 is good as the demand for claims management professionals is on the rise. With advancements in technology and data analytics, the skillset required for claims management is evolving.

Managing the Employee Journey – From Hiring to Onboarding


At Teleperformance, we integrate potential claims management experts into the company’s culture seamlessly throughout their journey – from getting hired and training to onboarding, and ensuring that they achieve continuous improvement through career development programs.

We implement a dedicated hiring process with the goal of ensuring proper selection of claims management candidates based on their cognitive skills and motivation. We do this through an assessment tool that uses a predictive model, allowing us to establish profiles based on the specific skills required at the start of the journey. We compare the results of each candidate with the ideal profile to ensure that they fall into the necessary scale. We then define the ideal profile type by analyzing a sample of top achiever profiles with a tenure of 12 months.

Managing attrition is also critical – retaining the right talent and employee loyalty is even more important for claims management accounts. To drive loyalty, Teleperformance offers a clear career path for aspiring employees with opportunities to climb ranks: from their roles as advisors, employees can set their sights on becoming team leaders (compliance auditors or insurance experts, trainers, WFM leaders), operations managers, SDMs, and directors. In addition, work environment and culture are key. As a Great Place to Work®-certified workplace, Teleperformance offers claims management professionals flexible working hours and provides a workplace culture that puts employees first.
