News & Views: This is not a Drill!

Newsletter – Monday, May 16, 2022

I was heading home from a meeting in Scottsdale, AZ a few weeks ago and happened to layover in Las Vegas, NV and it just seemed a little crazier than usual. I quickly realized the 2022 NFL Draft was being hosted by the city. And that got me thinking about a New York Times newsletter I’d just read entitled. It may sound moralistic, but the gist of the article was about the ability of experts to predict outcomes and for employers to “hire” well. And guess what – the writer posited that it is just as hard for NFL teams to hire new players, even with all of the analysis and stats in hand, as it is for you and me. He also reminds us of the Tom Brady rule who was drafted 199th in the 2000 NFL Draft whereas as many teams who recruited first-round QBs fared much worse.

The bottom line is none of us can see into the future. We evaluate every new team member based on what is most important to us, and this is based heavily on our mission and our culture. Elizabeth Ferrell is Tuscano’s V.P. of Human Resources. She is on the frontlines of the draft for insurance talent and has her work cut out for her. The leadership at Tuscano is intent on building a team that not only wins but wins because we recognize all of our team member’s contributions and efforts.
