Insurance consulting to businesses, employees and individuals requires industry know-how, attention to detail and sincerity. At Assurance, employees work hard to provide their clients with confidence and satisfaction. This is achieved through years of experience and constant communication, a strength of their largely Gen Y staff.
Generation Y employees are communication experts. They use various methods of communication to grow both personally and professionally. Their ability to communicate effectively and quickly gives young professionals an edge over other generations in the workforce.
Senior Vice President Steven Handmaker says, “Everything now is so quick. People are expecting fast answers. People are expecting you to be able to respond at a moment’s notice. I think the young folks coming up really have that at their fingertips in a way that other generations didn’t.”
Despite often being referred to as the technology generation, Generation Y enjoys in-person interaction and working alongside others. According to Senior Vice President Lisa Pinion says Assurance has a program in place to give new employees face time with veterans in the workplace.
“We’ve created a formal mentor program at all levels of our organization. We can give people those opportunities for growth and development as well as feedback and continuous improvement,” says Pinion.
Assurance does more for its employees than implementing initiatives that will benefit the company in terms of business. They also provide employees with excellent opportunities to better their health and wellness.
In addition to a competitive benefits package chock full of health perks, Assurance’s office maintains a completely stocked kitchen and dining room where employees are encouraged to cook and dine together. Assurance cares about its employees’ social responsibility as well. One quantifiable way in which Assurance helps develop these community bonds and sense of volunteerism is through a program that allows employees to take paid time off to volunteer with a non-profit organization of the employee’s choice.
With a strong business model, dedication to wellness, and growth opportunities, it’s easy to see why Generation Y employees continue to be drawn to this growing company.
