At Telamon Insurance & Financial Network, we do things differently… seriously. Sure, we sell insurance and, yes, we deal with the rules and regulations of our industry every day. When you work in an industry where accuracy isn’t only important, it’s everything, it’s a tough and often tedious job.
Protecting the assets and livelihood of other people isn’t something to be taken lightly. It requires exacting attention to detail and a serious think-on-your-feet ability. Yet, in an industry that sees rapid employee turnover, we have people that have been with our company, not for years, but for decades.
Why, you may ask? Good question.
We don’t just say that we value our employees. By creating a culture of respect that actively rewards a stellar performance, we show it on a daily basis in both big ways and small ones.
The “big ways” not only include competitive compensation and an exceptionally generous benefits package, but also the ability to have your voice heard. At weekly interdepartmental meetings, sharing your opinion isn’t just encouraged, it’s expected. The same is true of company-wide meetings: we are all held accountable for our company’s growth and we are all rewarded for its success.
We also don’t “just say” that we promote from within. With training programs provided on a regular basis and periodic performance assessments, you’ll find ongoing opportunities to advance and seek new challenges.
When it comes to the “little ways” of making our team feel valued, we go for it in a big way. If your workday finds you feeling especially stressed, take a timeout in one of the beanbag chairs in the quiet room. If you’re feeling sluggish, fuel up with an espresso, or a healthy meal or snack in the employee lounge where you’ll find fresh food delivered by Lean Box, which we provide to all employees at cost. While you’re in the lounge, enjoy some fresh air or a game of shuffleboard.
Keeping our team focused and fulfilled ensures that we attract and retain the sharpest minds working in our industry, which means our business is able to enjoy continued success. We’d say that’s a huge win/win.
Telamon is an Equal Opportunity Employer committed to a diverse workplace.
