  • Americans Believe Risky Careers are Considered the Most Heroic, According to Vantis Life

    May 23, 2019 by Vantis Life

    WINDSOR, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–A new study released by leading life insurance provider Vantis Life has highlighted just how valued heroic jobs are in American society. The research polled 2,000 U.S. residents, asking respondents to rank 22 common professions based on how heroic, important and trusted they are, and how they should be compensated accordingly.

    Vantis Life undertook the survey to reveal what Americans value about professions, and what characteristics make an everyday job heroic. When asked what defined a heroic profession, respondents suggested the top characteristics to be:

    • Saving someone’s life (80%)
    • Risking your own life (77%)
    • Standing up for other people (75%)

    These values are strongly reflected in the careers that were considered the most heroic amongst Americans – soldiers, firefighters, police officers, doctors and nurses – showing that true leadership and prioritizing others above yourself are key characteristics that define heroism.

    The study also revealed how these occupations are perceived when it comes to trust and value to society. These life-risking roles are highly ranked amongst trust, with soldiers and firefighters ranking in the top two slots, as well as importance, with police officers and firefighters as the third and fourth slot, respectively. Police officers and firefighters were only outranked by doctors and teachers as the first and second occupations of importance to the American people.

    According to Alison Robb, Digital Marketing Manager at Vantis Life, “Individuals who pursue these risky, yet heroic careers play a crucial role in American society. They’re instrumental in ensuring our safety, health and educational development, and despite putting more than full-time hours into their profession, they may or may not receive the traditional benefits associated with a 9-to-5 job. Vantis Life believes that anyone who has a family and/or financial obligations – regardless of occupation – can be a ‘real life’ hero by protecting their loved ones with life insurance.”
