As We Change And Grow, We Stay Focused On Building A Culture That Allows For Work-Life Balance And Puts Service Before Self.
Work-life balance is an ongoing conversation at Deeley Insurance Group, but it’s more than talk. “Bring Your Whole Self” is one of our core values because we recognize employees have both a professional and a personal life, giving their energy and time to us while they are here. They invest in us by being present and passionate about what we want to accomplish. So as a business, we’re committed to giving them flexibility to manage their personal lives when and how they need.
Here is how we do it. We hope these ideas inspire you!
Flexibility gives people peace of mind. If they know they can leave early to attend their children’s activities or arrive later one morning because they have a doctor’s appointment, they come to work with a higher level of focus.
Our employees take breaks when they need it—a departure from the traditional 15-minute breaks in the morning and afternoon. So, if they need to take a phone call from a family member, they don’t have to wait. They can take that call, then move on with their day.
Our team is passionate about making a positive impact in our communities. We give employees the freedom through Deeley Serves to earn volunteer hours—for every two hours they volunteer of their own time, they can earn one hour of workday time for the following year. Team members can accrue up to eight paid hours of volunteer time per year so they can continue giving back to the causes they care about. Volunteering helps build a culture of service. And service is at the heart of everything we do.
Create Positive Energy
You can feel it as soon as you enter our office. The bright colors and vibrant artwork throughout our building create a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. There’s a tangible energy here because of the relationships our employees have with each other, the support we lend to one another, and our drive to succeed and do better every day.
This energy is intentional, and we continue to build a positive culture through various efforts. One of those is our Morale & Motivation (M&M) committee. Employees help plan workday and after-hours events and spearhead new quality-of-life initiatives to make office life and home life even better.
Learning and Growing Together
Giving people ways to grow their knowledge empowers them to succeed. When people have a vision for how far they can go, they are motivated to develop personally and professionally. We provide support and resources, investing in the education of our people so they can take their skills to the next level.
Adopting a collaborative interview process helps determine whether an applicant’s values align with ours. It isn’t just about the job. Candidates interview across multiple departments, and we select individuals who expand our potential and add something unique to our culture. When we find the right people, we carve a place for them.
Putting Our Best Foot Forward
Deeley Insurance Group is consistently recognized as a Best Place to Work in Insurance. We learn, we grow, we give back—and we are tremendously proud of that.
