Thankful for my company

I have a lot of blessings to count at this time of year (and any other time, really). I’m basically healthy, happily married, and gainfully employed. I’m particularly thankful for my company right now, but not just because GEICO pays my salary.

The recent hurricane/superstorm reminds me that my company serves a critical role in times of trouble. Faced with tens of thousands of claims, our catastrophe team has worked tirelessly since Sandy hit to do right by our customers; to deliver on our promise of service. We were on the scene as soon as the storm passed, and while there’s still much to do, our team is committed to resolving every claim as quickly as possible and helping to restore some measure of normalcy to our policyholders in the stricken areas.

I’m thankful for the dedication of my colleagues who serve on and support our catastrophe teams. I’m thankful that my company is on firm enough financial footing to be able to absorb a blow like this without having to limit the service we provide in any way. I’m thankful that I can say I work for a company that helps people when they need it the most.

What are you thankful for this week?

    After seeing all the devestation of the hurricane from working at GEICO, I’m thankful for how much my family had. So what the power was out for a week, at least I had the wood stoves at my mother’s house to keep warm at night. We may have lost a few shingles and our fence, but at least there is a home to go back to when the power turned back on. I’m thankful my area wasn’t so devestated that we were able to get the power on so quickly. And much more…

    Most of all I’m thankful for how cheerful my collegues remained through this whole experience. Laugh, joking, crying together. We were all here for each other, and our customers.

    Also to GEICO who provided the environment to remain hopeful and helping our associates and our customers through this tough time.

    Thank you to GEICO for helping us all, and
    Thank You to all the customers who helped make me laugh
    Thank You to all the associates who made it through!
