April 3rd, 2018

Just a few weeks ago students from Canal Winchester High School (CWHS) visited the offices of Motorists Insurance Group. One of the students turned to Crystal Dortch, his teacher, and exclaimed, “This isn’t at all what I expected! I expected to see rows and rows of people at desks on phones.” 


This is what the business of insurance looks like at Motorists, and it’s not so different from other insurance companies in Ohio. 

The students visited Motorists Insurance Group as part of their courses in the Risk Management Technician Pathway, a two-year program at CWHS. As Dortch describes it, "Ohio Dominican University, in collaboration with Motorists Insurance, is providing CWHS students with a unique, exclusive and fully funded opportunity to propel their careers.  Whether students plan to work immediately after high school, attend college, or join the military, the field of insurance provides enough flexibility to accommodate any and all of these pursuits, while providing income and advancement opportunities."

What else has changed in the insurance industry? The IIRC asked its leaders to describe their industry. These are the words they used:
