O.N.Singh, Executive Chairman, Universal Sompo General Insurance said "We are pleased with the end result which we have achieved by fulfilling our objective of providing employment to deserving candidates. Successfully empowering un-employed youth with self-sustaining source of income for livelihood has been addressed with this program. We will continue to add value to their profession as well as reach out to maximum citizens to provide non-life insurance solutions to mitigate risk which can minimize the financial impact in times of uncertainty." He added that Mahatma Gandhi always want the society to be self-reliant and always promoted cottage industries so as to make them self-reliant. Universal sompo is working on the bottom of the pyramid of the society so that the entire pyramid should be large. These youth once developed shall not only be self-reliant but also shall boost the economy.

Hon'ble minister Dr Mahendra Nath Pandey felicitated the candidates who has joined in the previous years and their performance have been outstanding.

He added that the Skill Development program of Univesral Sompo shall help the youth to establish themselves and shall be able to give employment to others in the coming time. This is outstanding initiative of the company and shall certainly be helpful to eradicate unemployment.

Under the "Skill Development Program" of Universal Sompo General Insurance, the company provides financial support and required trainings for the development of skills to unemployed from the Rural and urban areas to act as Career Agents and earn a living through commission received by selling non-life insurance policies of the company. The necessary product training and knowledge is imparted by the company to prepare the candidates to undertake examination of IRDAI. Along with product training, the company also provides soft-skill training to enhance their interactions with prospective customers. Upon completion, the candidates are designated to source business for the company from their particular region. Since most of the candidates reside in the semi-urban, rural and hinterlands, they are able to extend risk solutions to those section of the society, who are generally left-out due to accessibility issues.

On procuring new business, every candidate will be entitled for commission as per the regulatory framework. In addition to commission, the company will provide every candidate a monthly out-of-pocket expense of Rs 7,500/- p.m. The training and examinations are held at Universal Sompo's Training Centers that have been accredited by IRDAI and spread across Urban, Semi-urban and Rural locations.

Since the inception of the Skill Development Program, the company has trained and recruited 709 Career Agents.
