Mentoring program

In addition to formal training, we encourage both experienced and newer agents to work together in mentoring relationships, either informally or through the Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT) Mentoring Program. In fact, we believe in the program so strongly that we incentivize our agents to take advantage of this opportunity. The MDRT is one of the most prestigious national and international organizations in the insurance industry.

Employee resource groups

Employees representing unique cultures, experiences, and backgrounds, these groups do much more than raise awareness of diversity & inclusion.
