Let me share with you a bit about Great West Casualty Company's transition during the COVID crisis. Within days of the nation moving to a close in March, our leadership team made the decision to transition nearly all of our 970 office employees to a remote-work status. The task was massive, yet the transition was seamless. Teams collaborated, customers continued to receive excellent service, and our employees were safe. As we continue through this pandemic, we know that there will be a time when the offices will reopen and that our company has our well-being top of mind when it does.
Each of the following are phrases from the most recent communication from leadership and serve as a reminder of Great West's continued commitment to its people.
"Keep your positive approach and attitude as we navigate the channels of uncertainty."
For those of us who are new to this remote work lifestyle, it can be tough to feel connected to our colleagues and get into a routine. Add to that a global pandemic, and well, it can be downright depressing. When we hear from our supervisors, managers, and executive leaders, the messages have a positive focus. We are positive that we are doing what's right, and we are positive that we'll be back together for company grill-outs, holiday parties, and coffee in the cafeteria in due time. We help each other see the light at the end of the pandemic tunnel.
"Be proud of your fellow employees and this organization."
Looking back over the past four months, it is evident that we have incredible people working here. Our training department offers weekly tips for how best to work in this new environment. Our culture committee drums up fun activities to keep us connected. Many of our employees continue to work in the office to ensure essential tasks are completed. And the list goes on. There has never been a more accurate representation of the diversity, selflessness, and strength that our employees have than they are showing now.
"The Difference is Our People."
We've said it before and we'll say it again: The most important part of the culture at Great West is the people. This family, this support system is what makes Great West Casualty Company one of the best places to work.
