Training and development are fundamental to our core values, and we know we’re not alone. Continued education is essential, especially in our industry where underwriting integrity improves risk selection, loss ratio, and profit-sharing. We’ve seen the effects of leaders who invest in their employees’ education, versus those that don’t. This is why we’ve made it our mission to develop subject matter experts through our American Insurance Academy.
