Just as C&F’s commitment to the communities in which we live and work is part of our DNA, so too is C&F’s focus on our employees, the company’s most important and valuable asset. We are deeply invested in the health, wealth and overall welfare of our colleagues and their families.
Through our C&F Health and Wellness Programs, the company offers a wide array of employee-focused resources to support both physical and mental well-being, education and training and work/life balance, many of which were enhanced during 2020.
Employee Assistance Program
Our high-touch Employee Assistance Program provides our employees with the support they may need to resolve issues affecting their health, well-being, family life or job performance. With access to personal health advocates and free counseling sessions, our employees are better equipped to manage day-to-day challenges and sudden critical events. The company provides these free services to all employees and their extended families through Health Advocate, a national patient advocacy and assistance company.
There is also a Healthy Maternity Program for employees, in which they receive free pregnancy resources and ongoing nurse support, plus they can earn up to $150 in incentives.
Flexible Workplace Program
2020 was a year in which we helped our employees navigate the transition from working in one of our more than 35 client-facing offices around the country, to working from home. During this time of unprecedented upheaval, C&F, through its Flexible Workplace Program, supported both the personal and professional lives of our more than 3,000 colleagues so they would be well-positioned to continue seamlessly providing our clients the superior service they have come to expect. This was also the right thing to do for our employees and their families. This highly successful initiative will remain in place post-pandemic.
Since its inception in 1976, the Crum & Forster Scholarship Program – in partnership with the National Merit Scholarship Corp. – has provided academic recognition and financial assistance to more than 250 children of our employees, totaling $1.85M, for their college undergraduate studies.
C&F’s Tuition Reimbursement Program helps employees further their knowledge, skills, and job effectiveness through reimbursement of some of the costs of qualifying continued and/or higher education. Since 2015, more than 160 colleagues have taken advantage of C&F’s Tuition Reimbursement Program.
