A Great Place to Work

Investing in Our Employees

At Crum & Forster, we believe that our people are our most important asset. We are deeply invested in our employees and their dependents – their health, wealth and overall well-being.

Every day, we strive to make our great place to work an even better place to work. We do this by listening and considering the whole person who comes to work for us – their wellness, ongoing learning and growth, spirit of the community, and competitive compensation and benefits.

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.

Social Impact

Crum & Forster (C&F) believes that Social Impact — and being a good corporate citizen — is at the heart of doing good business. In fact, we believe in “doing good by doing well.” Our commitment to supporting the diverse communities where our employees live and work has long been a distinctive feature of our company culture. Through numerous corporate giving and employee-driven programs, we are helping to improve the lives of our fellow citizens and drive positive change within our communities.

In 2022, Crum & Forster donated nearly $2.5 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.
