Continuing a favorable tradition, New York Life is planning to add more than 3,600 financial representatives this year, with more than half being women or those who represent the cultural markets.
In 2013, 62 percent of New York Life’s new hires in the field were women or individuals who represent the cultural markets. The company expects similar results in 2014 as it continues its long commitment to hiring and supporting women and individuals serving the African-American, Chinese, Hispanic, Korean, South Asian and Vietnamese markets in the United States. Agents serving the cultural markets accounted for 46 percent of the company’s new life insurance sales in 2013.
“New York Life has been recognized as an employer of choice for its strong commitment to women and individuals who represent cultural markets by top outlets including Working Mother magazine, LATINAStyle magazine, DiversityBusiness.com, Women For Hire, Hispanic Business, and the National Association for Female Executives (NAFE),” said Rich Simonetti, senior vice president of field recruiting and development at New York Life.
