ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) is one of the biggest priorities in the corporate world today. Certainly, as a talent and recruitment consultancy, Sheffield Haworth has seen a huge increase in ESG-related roles – and the demand for talent with ESG experience or qualifications.
ESG is so all-encompassing as a term that we could almost see it as unhelpful – especially when it comes to defining job roles and the corresponding skills required for them. After all, is a Head of ESG primarily responsible for increasing diversity and inclusion in the workforce? Or do they oversee reporting on the environmental impact of the supply chain? Or are they driving through a series of processes that will make their organisation a net zero carbon dioxide emitter by 2030?
We interviewed five ESG specialists from across the insurance market to get a deeper understanding of the ESG trends and opportunities and what this might mean for the future of the ESG talent market in insurance.
