Allstate scores 100% on Corporate Equality Index

Allstate is proud to demonstrate LGBT+ inclusion through Corporate Equality Index

Allstate is proud to announce that we have scored 100% on the Human Rights Campaign 2018 Corporate Equality Index (CEI). Allstate was scored on detailed criteria falling under five broad categories: non-discrimination policies; employment benefits; demonstrated organizational competency and accountability around LGBTQ diversity and inclusion; public commitment to LGBTQ equality; and responsible citizenship.

The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) began issuing the CEI in 2002 to asses LGBTQ-inclusive policies and practices at Fortune 500 companies. The assessment encourages corporate leaders to implement more tools and act on more commitments to create a safe and inclusive environment for LGBTQ employees. By scoring 100 on the CEI, a business earns the designation of “Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality.” HRC saw a record-breaking number of high scores as more businesses have found ways to “show up” for LGBTQ equality.

Allstate has partnered with groups such as OutLeadership, Out & Equal, Lesbians Who Tech, and the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce to continue increasing recruitment and retention of talented and diverse candidates. Allstate’s PRIDE employee resource group also helps create a safe and inclusive environment for LGBTQ+ employees and their allies.

Using Smartphones to Settle Claims

Using Smartphones to Settle Claims

Learn how Allstate is using technology to help customers faster than ever.

We understand that the claims process is not something that everyone looks forward to, especially after an accident, which is why Allstate has simplified the process with several product and service innovations.  It started back in 2013 with the launch of QuickFoto claim, allowing customers to submit photos of their damaged vehicle for auto claims via the Allstate Mobile App on their smartphone. Since then, Allstate has launched VirtualAssist, an app that allows adjusters to communicate in real time with body shops through video as well as Digital Operating Centers (DOC) around the county to expedite claim processing and repairs.

Kevin is a claims adjuster with in the DOC, and he is glad to be able to conveniently serve customers. “It’s really revolutionary. You used to have to make an appointment and then drive to the claim office. Now, you can start your claim in your short pants and flip-flops on a Sunday morning, or you can do it right then and there at the scene. So, it really gives customers a lot more freedom and flexibility.” Customers can link their bank to the app, so the payout can be deposited directly into their bank accounts. Not comfortable trying the app yet? No problem. Agency owners can assist with those who can’t use the app or submit photos via the app or we also have third party vendors that can come out and assist.

Understanding that a customer’s time is just as important as the quality of service delivered is essential. People expect things to be done faster than ever before, and Allstate is accommodating them.

“I love my job because I get to talk to and help a lot of different people. I make it fast and easy for large numbers of customers to take care of an unpleasant situation when and where it’s most convenient for them, and that feels good. I also love working at a place where the vibe’s just good.”

Kevin works in the Dallas, TX DOC, and Allstate has nine other DOC locations around the country in the following locations: Charlotte, NC; Denver, CO; Ft. Washington, PA; Hauppauge, NY; Largo, FL; Nashville, TN; Phoenix, AZ; Seattle, WA; Woodridge IL offering relocation to qualified candidates.
