At Esurance, our goal is to create a diverse environment that brings new and rich perspectives to our jobs and innovation to our business.
Supporting our associates
For us, diversity and inclusion begin with the recruiting process. Esurance is an equal opportunity employer, and our goal is to attract and retain people who reflect and understand our diverse customer base. This allows us to seek out new ideas and perspectives and ensure everyone's skills are fully leveraged.
Once on board, associates are provided with numerous training and workshop opportunities designed to maintain our open and accepting environment.
Training for associates
Our associates are given access to a wealth of diversity-related resources and training materials, including:
- Diversity and Inclusion Awareness Workshop — an in-depth and interactive course aimed at preventing workplace harassment
- Little Things Mean A Lot™ Workshop — focusing on how seemingly little things can help make our organization highly productive, creative, and innovative
- Customers With A Difference™ Workshop — helping associates who work directly with our customers develop their cross-cultural skills
Training for managers
Managers are also provided with a range of resources and training designed to help them navigate the ever-changing workplace environment. Part of their training includes The Diversity and Inclusion Awareness Workshop for Managers and Employment Law Boot Camp, both of which are designed to support the development of future leaders.
Our award-winning commitment to diversity
We also encourage and support numerous volunteering efforts, and our associates play a huge role in our level of community involvement. Their enthusiasm for so many varied causes and concerns reflects not only their uniqueness and commitment, but also inspires us to do more each year.
Our Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Council, comprising associates of all levels and office locations, works closely with our senior management team to drive inclusion efforts and educate associates on creating an inclusive environment.
Esurance is featured on the Human Rights Campaign's Corporate Equality Index for our non-discriminatory practices in the workplace, with our customers, and in our communities. In addition, Esurance has been recognized as a top place to work by numerous organizations. These awards acknowledge our efforts to create and maintain a workplace where diversity and equality thrive.
Supporting our veterans
In 2012, we introduced the Esurance Veterans Engagement Team and Supporters (EVETS), made up of associates dedicated to supporting veterans and veteran-related issues both in and out of the workplace. EVETS helps aid our veteran-recruiting efforts and offers support to current associates who are veterans or family/friends of veterans. The group serves as a valuable support system for its members, creates career development opportunities for former military personnel, and promotes awareness of veterans' issues and concerns.
EVETS is Esurance's first Employee Resource Group (ERG), designed to bring together associates with a common interest to serve as a source of support for the group's members and for Esurance as a whole. We plan to establish additional ERGs over time with the goal of developing empowered associates whose unique perspectives support the company's growth and serve as a key resource for consumer and associate insights.
Our customers, our partners, our community
Esurance celebrates the diversity of our workforce and our consumers and takes pride in supporting the communities in which they live and work.
Domestic partner savings
We're committed to equality and diversity, qualities we strive to bring to communities across the nation. That's why we offer the married rate to domestic partners and those in civil unions in nearly every state we do business — including those that don't recognize either commitment.
Our commitment to diversity also extends outside our company. We encourage minority-, female-, and veteran-owned businesses to learn more about becoming an Esurance supplier.
Each year, Esurance associates donate valuable time to volunteer organizations chosen through the Esurance Grant Program, as well as many others. The causes that benefit from their volunteer efforts are as diverse as Esurance itself and include homelessness, veterans affairs, and the arts. Read more about our community involvement.
