Our agents are our most important business partners. We carefully screen agents in the seven states in which we write products, and select only those agents whom we believe align with and share our values as an organization.
These are the men and women who counsel our policyholders as to the best way to protect those things that are most valuable to them – their families, their homes, their businesses, and their property. When a claim needs to be filed or a policy updated, they are committed to meeting the needs of their policyholders in a timely manner, with skill and compassion.
All of our agents are licensed, knowledgeable, and qualified to advise their friends, neighbors, and professional colleagues on how to best protect their most valued possessions. Many of our agents belong to statewide or national organizations (such as the National Association of Professional Insurance Agents) that provide continuing professional development and educational opportunities, so that they are able to offer up-to-the-minute knowledge and understanding of the insurance world to their customers. Many of our agents have represented Ohio Mutual for decades.
As independent professionals, our agents have the ability to evaluate products from many different companies, and recommend the ones that best meet the needs of their customers. Since they are free to recommend products from a variety of insurance companies, we believe this offers the best value, service, and protection for policyholders. When agents recommend our products for their customers, we recognize and deeply value the level of trust that they are placing in Ohio Mutual.
Recently we surveyed our most successful agents, to see how they are involved and support the communities in which they live. In addition to operating successful insurance agencies and servicing their policyholders, we found that our agents also serve on local school boards, chambers of commerce, city councils, hospital boards, fraternal organizations, historical societies, and in local churches. They sponsor and coach local sports teams, support police and fire departments, organize blood drives, support scout troops, FFA chapters, and raise funds for the United Way and Make-a-Wish Foundation. They volunteer at libraries, and support charities that fight cancer, homelessness, domestic violence, and illiteracy. Our agents are invested and involved in their communities – daily living out the values we have at Ohio Mutual.
