We are different.
We believe people who like what they do, do it better.
Elephant CEO Henry Engelhardt explains why.
Our culture – 4 pillars
Our success goes hand-in-hand with having a strong culture. We simply believe that happy people make happy customers and happy customers help increase profits. So our philosophy is a simple yet an effective one: People who enjoy what they do, do it better. We put a lot of effort and investment into making sure that Elephant is a happy place to work, where we work hard, have rewarding careers and fun is integral to the working day.
One of the most appealing benefits for Elephant staff is our free stock plan operated by the company. All members of staff receive up to $5,000 (depending on share price) of free shares every year. Admiral Group floated on the London Stock Exchange in 2004.
We want people to feel like they own part of the company. The best way to do this is to give them part of the company to own. Everybody in the organization gets the same number of shares, no matter what you do or how long you’ve been here because every job is important at Elephant. We all work together to make Elephant a successful company.
Elephant Insurance is proud to partner with local organizations in the communities in which we conduct business.
