SEATTLE, June 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Allstate Insurance Company today announced a boost to its sales force in both Washington and Oregon to keep pace with growing consumer demand for insurance and financial products and services, while also celebrating men and women who have served our country with bravery and commitment to freedom for our Nation.
"Serving those who serve our country is part of our legacy – and our strategy. A general founded Allstate, and former military leaders remain at top levels of management. Allstate recently hired a leader to oversee cross-functional efforts to serve military consumers and to attract, hire and develop military, ex-military and veterans for key areas," says Allstate's Strategic Deployment Leader Rich Vander Weyst. "As we prepare to celebrate the freedom that these Veterans worked hard to ensure, this is the perfect time to celebrate their legacy with Allstate and our partnership. We also have a formal recruiting and development program for Allstate agency staff. An employee resource group supports veterans and partners with leadership to help them succeed."
To recruit more former active duty and retired Military agency owners and their families, Allstate is offering up to a $10,000 award to any member of the general public who refers an eligible agency owner candidate to Allstate. The referral award is payable after appointment.
"Allstate is a trusted brand and an excellent wealth-building opportunity for a small business owner. We are unique among all other insurers because the agent owns the economic interest in their business," says Vander Weyst. "Allstate agents can sell the economic interest in their agency or pass the business they build on to a family member."
Candidates interested in becoming an Allstate agency owner will need capital to invest in their agency to help ensure they can successfully fund the normal day-to-day costs associated with opening and running a small business. Sales professionals need no liquid capital to apply for jobs within an agency.
