At Crum & Forster, we are constantly striving to innovate and improve our work by focusing on the power of “we.”
We believe that our success is built not on the contributions of one individual or business group, but rather on the collective performance of our entire team. The people we work with have a profound impact on our organization’s performance. This is why we focus our Talent Acquisition efforts on individuals seeking to work in a collegial and collaborative environment and who bring a passion to what they do. Once you begin working here, you’ll discover that we are committed to helping you grow your career – whether you’re just starting out or further along on your path. You will see, first hand, why C&F is a great place to work, and why an overwhelming majority of the C&F family, according to Glassdoor, would recommend us to a friend.
Investing in Our Most Important Asset
A Great Place to Work
At Crum & Forster, we are deeply invested in our employees and their families – their health and wellness. Every day, we strive to make our great place to work even better. We do this by considering the whole person who comes to work for us and offering programs to address physical, emotional, financial and social wellness, along with ongoing learning and growth, and community outreach opportunities.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
With several active Employee Resource Groups and an Inclusivity Council, Crum & Forster values the diverse voices of all our people. It is our mission to attract, retain and support diverse talent that is representative of different life experiences, genders, races, sexual orientations, cultures, religions, differing abilities, and age groups. Belonging@C&F highlights and celebrates our employees’ diverse and wide-raging experiences, identities and opinions.
Corporate Social Responsibility
Crum & Forster believes that social responsibility is at the heart of doing good business. We are committed to supporting the communities where our employees live and work through the causes and initiatives that serve diverse and underserved groups. We lead with purpose through a combination of corporate – and employee-driven giving, coupled with hands-on involvement.
In 2020, Crum & Forster donated $1.5 million, primarily to food banks, educational programs, youth-serving organizations, and many other programs affected by the disruption and financial uncertainty created by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Learning and Development
At Crum & Forster, we believe in lifelong learning and are committed to helping our employees own their careers. We want them to feel empowered, to be in the driver’s seat directing the course of their career path. Actually, we think the learning and development process is not so different from the process of building a car. You need the right amount of parts in just the right place to make the car run—and run well!
Just as everyone drives different cars, not everyone learns the same way. That’s why we offer multiple opportunities to build your knowledge, skills, abilities and performance.
