Customers Benefit as Employees Thrive at California Casualty
San Mateo, CA, June 11, 2018 – Many corporations struggle with keeping workers invigorated and excited about their jobs. That’s why the average person only stays with an employer for about four years. At California Casualty, however, one-third of the staff has been with the company 15 years or more. In fact, as of April, nearly 100 of California Casualty’s staff members were celebrating 20 years or longer, some with tenure reaching more than 40 years.
California Casualty, a 104-year old, fourth generation family-owned auto and home insurance company, knows that celebrating and appreciating its workforce makes a difference. Loving their jobs and being more enthused means more passion for providing exceptional service to policyholders. That dedication is paying off with over 750 five-star Trustpilot® reviews and a 99 percent customer service satisfaction rating.
California Casualty’s advantage comes from the California Casualty Code, written in 1965, which lays out the company’s values, and guides how each person in the organization should treat customers and each other. The mutual respect derived from the Code encourages and leads to both individual and corporate success, with everyone working for a greater purpose – to protect American heroes, our customers.
An example is Danielle Hogan, recently recognized with the company’s highest honor, the Carl G. Brown, Jr. Award of Excellence. She cited the family-friendly environment and the Code for her 17-year career and success. “Everyone here is super fun, works very hard, and shares their expertise. The work we do is both challenging and exciting, and the direction from the Code makes it possible for people from different areas with different ideas to reach a consensus that benefits the company as a whole,” she said.
Chief Marketing Officer and Vice President of Sales, Mike McCormick, who just celebrated his 20th year, agrees that the Code helps the company stay true to its virtues and its employees. “This document reminds each and every one of us the importance of the company’s values, traditions and ethics. The code is, in a way, a risk management tool that prevents us from losing sight of the principals behind our success,” he said.
California Casualty provides auto and home insurance to American heroes – educators, law enforcement, firefighters/EMTs and nurses – who make their communities better. CEO Beau Brown, who knows every employee by name, summed it up with this statement, “Every interaction with fellow employees, company executives, policyholders and prospects is an opportunity to build relationships and lasting impressions. Every employee is essential to the success of our organization.”
