We’re all in it together
Gifford Brown, Chief Customer Officer, said his 7th grade science teacher taught him something that he sees in action every day at Leahy-IFP. His teacher said to focus on putting in a solid effort and learning the principles of science. The result– good grades–will follow.
“We have a strong belief in our people and the processes we’ve put into place,” Giff said, adding. “And we focus on our people and processes. The results—a successful business– naturally follows from that.”
One aspect of the culture that contributes to employee satisfaction is that there is a lack of “silos” at the company, giving everyone an opportunity to be a part of its success.
“We allow everyone to participate in setting our objectives, providing a sense of ownership and pride in the organization,” said Stephanie Marks, Director of Commercialization. “We all win together, and we all lose together. That is something that is hard to achieve in the workplace.”
It’s a ‘we’re all in it together’ way of doing business and employees value that.
“Our culture fosters a sense of inclusion, engagement, and recognition among our teams, all while celebrating the unique qualities that each individual brings to our collective success,” said Eric Johnson, Executive Director of Finance.
