More carriers using multiple distribution approaches to reach their goals.
Voluntary/worksite carrier expectations for sales rep production are up significantly in recent years, according Eastbridge Consulting Group’s newest research.
Eastbridge’s Voluntary Rep Compensation Spotlight™ Report shows more companies (61%) expect their sales reps to produce $3 million or more in annual sales, up from 45% in 2020. Carriers with voluntary-only reps tend to expect higher production: 30% expect $5 million or more, compared to just 14% of companies with multiline reps who also sell other types of coverage.
The Voluntary Rep Compensation Spotlight™ Report uses survey responses from 22 voluntary/worksite carriers in February and March 2023 to examine how carriers compensate and support their sales reps. Carriers can use this information to compare their own sales rep compensation strategies to others active in the market and assess their competitiveness in this key area.
“Distribution is a critical component of success in this market,” said Nick Rockwell, Eastbridge president. “Carriers are competing for many of the same brokers and distributors, so they have to offer attractive comp and support to attract and keep the best sales reps.”
