Salary negotiations topic for WiRe seminar

Women in Reinsurance is hosting a salary negotiation seminar next week to help industry professionals learn strategies and techniques to assist them in negotiating their compensation packages.

The lunchtime presentation will be led by Sylvia Jones, director of Elevate Executive Selection, an executive search and recruitment company.

“The timing of the seminar is ideal for the reinsurance industry since many employers and employees negotiate salary packages at this time of year,” said Ms Jones.

“My discussion will provide attendees with advice on how to determine their worth by recognising their bottom line, prepare beforehand to avoid mistakes and handle counter-offers. I will also speak to managerial concerns and touch on topics such as advocating for deserving employees and how to hold tough conversations.”

There is no charge to attend the seminar as 12 noon on Tuesday 28, which is open to all women who work in the reinsurance industry. The seminar is being held at O'Hara House on Bermudiana Road.

Rachael Ashford, a member of WiRe's events committee, said: “WiRe has been working hard for our members by hosting events that offer relevant information to strengthen our professional development which benefits the industry as a whole

“We've had an enormous response from our membership with this topic and wanted to welcome other women from the Reinsurance sector to join us.”

As space is limited, any one who wishes to attend the seminar is asked to RSVP through the link:
