Cultivating Relationships is Part of Our Culture

Nothing is more powerful than a group of people from varying backgrounds and experiences working together to develop a solution.

Our commitment

Diversity and inclusion increases our capacity to better serve our clients’ unique needs in the communities in which they live, work and play.

Here at COUNTRY Financial we:

  • Know we do our best work when our employees and representatives are engaged, respected and connected.
  • Intentionally work together to create a culture and environment where all talents, experiences and backgrounds are valued for their contribution and role in achieving success.
  • Aim to best serve our clients by integrating inclusion as a business approach, reflecting the diversity of the marketplace and embracing diversity in a way that engages everyone.
  • Strive to hire top talent from diverse backgrounds to fill employee and representative positions to achieve our client’s version of financial security no matter their starting point.

Living our values

Creating a diverse and inclusive culture is a journey.

We value the talent, skills and perspectives of our employees and we work to fully integrate D&I into our everyday practices. Through continuous learning, training and talent development, we invest in our people to provide them support for success. Examples of our efforts include Resource Groups, SHEHasIt and Military Support.

Resource groups

Resource Groups are voluntary, employee-led groups united together based on shared identities, characteristics, life experiences, and beliefs. They serve as an enterprise-wide resource for all corporate employees and leaders, promote a diverse and inclusive workplace and provide programs aligned with our corporate mission, values and objectives.

SHEHasIT

Through SHEHasIT, female representatives come together to share ideas, learn, and assist one another in reaching goals, promote education, mentor, and develop leadership skills.

Military support

We're proud of the men and women who have served and are serving our nation. Our Military Support Group provides moral and physical support for employees and their families in preparation for, during and upon return from active duty.

For current Guard/Reservists, they help employees and representatives navigate the support COUNTRY provides for you and your family.

Our social responsibility

Giving back to the communities we serve is important to us.

We have a long history of supporting groups, empowering families to do their best, and strengthening the neighborhoods in which we live and work. A big focus lies in our philanthropic effort of supporting nonprofits that offer financial security education programs. We also partner with community leaders, academic institutions, professional and civic organizations to stay connected to our growing and diverse client base.
