The Covid-19 pandemic is changing how the world operates. We’re being asked to adapt to remote work, grocery shopping is different, and we’re seeing our industry’s resilience clearer than ever. As with crises like sever weather events, or simple everyday disruptions like car accidents, the insurance industry consistently takes a leadership role in our country and communities. We’ve always responded with innovation and integrity and in our current crisis, when our clients and colleagues need us the most, we’re staying stronger and more united than ever.
