About Insurance Nerd Day
Have you ever met someone who loves working at their insurance firm?
Have you tried telling them to stop talking about insurance clients or new policies, but they wouldn’t, because they’re too excited about it?
Well, there is a day dedicated just for those kinds of people.
It’s Insurance Nerd Day!
Insurance nerds are the kinds of people who love to talk about insurance, read insurance publications, collect insurance memorabilia, and post about insurance news on their social-media platforms.
So, if you want to give something to your friend who meets this criteria, start here, by learning more about Insurance Nerd Day!
History of Insurance Nerd Day
Insurance Nerd Day is intended to break the ‘boring’ stigma attached to people who can relate to being an ‘insurance nerd’.
Because of the lack of interest in the insurance industry, Pioneer State Mutual Insurance Company declared Insurance Nerd Day back in 2016.
Each year, the company celebrates their employees in this manner, in order to attract young talent and encourage other professionals to get involved in breaking the stereotypes surrounding a career in insurance.
While Pioneer State Mutual founded the holiday, there are now multiple insurance companies and insurance nerd websites that have popped up to celebrate this holiday.
If you’re interested in learning more about this insurance craze, then follow some of the top blogs on the topic and learn from the best.
How to Celebrate Insurance Nerd Day
One of the best ways to appreciate insurance workers is by thanking them for what they do.
If you have a friend who works in the industry, listen to some of their conversations about their work and experiences, and you may learn something interesting about this industry!
If you’re a college student considering your career options, then check out your local insurance companies and see if they have job openings available.
Do some research about insurance and come to grips with the finer details that most people in general wouldn't know about.
This is also a day to check out what your own insurance entails, and see how up to date you are on your insurance plan.
Also, for fun, you can hashtag #InsuranceNerdDay or #mindchallenge on your favourite social-media platforms and tag your insurance friends in your posts, thanking them for all of their hard work.
