The pandemic and digital transformation have created new business opportunities for insurance companies. Organizations are exploring the use of new technologies to forecast customer demands and develop new products and services that can meet their needs. Even though accounting and finance professionals are able to work productively from home, this is one of the functions that will most likely be affected by the two-year pandemic heading into 2022.
Insurers are adopting digital solutions to enable remote work for their employees. Many multinational insurers have already implemented hybrid labor policies. Having good hybrid work guidelines, comprehensive wellness benefits that also extend to mental health, as well as a positive work environment are going to be critical to an employer’s ability to attract potential employees, according to ideas. by Rouella Landicho, Associate Director – Banking, Financial and Legal Services, in Randstad’s Market Outlook and Salary Report.

Candidates for accounting, tax and treasury will most likely receive a 5-10% salary increase when they change employers, with higher paid managerial and managerial positions.
