we value the diversity of perspective, talent and experience that our employees bring to our organization.
we believe a diverse workforce that reflects our communities and our clients fosters innovation and creativity that empowers employees to positively contribute to our company’s success. at the heart of our inclusion efforts is the development of talent within the organization that will perpetuate our culture and philosophy.
management and leadership programs, as well as seminars and training opportunities are inclusive and made available to all employees ensuring that diverse candidates are eligible and qualified for promotions. regular visits by senior management to our tewspaper.companies, including our ceo, create opportunities for employee engagement not found in many organizations of our size.
we are committed to developing the next generation of insurance professionals to continue our work providing creative solutions to insurance needs of our clients. to that end, various tewspaper.companies are involved in organizations that promote young people in insurance, while others offer programs for mentoring, interning and coaching.
from the day it was founded, our business has been about people, and the expertise they bring to bear in all that we do. we have succeeded over these years because of teamwork - and because teams are made up of individuals who, every day, in every location, go the extra mile.
this has been reflected not only in our results, but in our culture of working together with shared values for a common goal and a common good. we trademarked the phrase “everything counts – everyone matters” more than a decade ago – and we live those words every day.
