If you know a bright young adult who is looking for a great college major or an even better long-term career, suggest they check out insurance. Lest you think we’re biased, consider that

One of the main perks highlighted by the magazine is the above average flexibility afforded by the field — and that’s very attractive to millennials.

If you’ve faced an insurance claim yourself, you know the importance of what we do every day. We are truly honored to be part of an industry that literally affects client livelihoods. And we’re being recognized for our culture and accomplishments. A few of our noteworthy awards include
magazine’s Best Places to Work in Insurance; Metropolitan Detroit’s 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For; and 2016 When Work Works award.
We take the time to recognize when employees rise to the challenge. Our

programs are two more ways we support a culture of continuous improvement and innovation.
Finally, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that we also provide a well-rounded employee experience outside the office by reaching into local neighborhoods through our Amerisure Charitable Foundation. This means we match employee contributions to a range of charities, sponsor community outreach efforts and support nonprofit organizations that enhance the lives of people in the communities of our employees, board members, Partners for Success® agencies and policyholders.
Calling all generations
While we’re eager to help launch the careers of interested millennials, we also enthusiastically support anyone interested in making a career switch to insurance. We’re always looking for fresh perspectives and engaged professionals. Are you — or someone you know — ready to be our next great hire?
