Junior Achievement Award

Allstate Earns U.S. President’s Volunteer Service Award

Junior Achievement USA® (JA) has honored Allstate with a 2016-2017 U.S. President’s Volunteer Service Award. The U.S. President’s Volunteer Service Award was presented to 57 organizations at an evening awards ceremony during the JA Volunteer Summit, on March 13, 2018 in New York, NY.

“In 2003, President George W. Bush established the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation (the Council) to recognize the valuable contributions volunteers make in communities and encourage more people to serve. The Council created the President’s Volunteer Service Award program as a way to thank and honor individuals who, by their demonstrated commitment and example, inspire others to engage in volunteer service. In 2006, Junior Achievement became an official certifying organization for this award, which recognizes corporations with a U.S. presence that provide volunteers to teach JA programs anywhere in the world.”

Throughout 2016 and 2017, Allstate agency owners and employees gave more than 5,000 hours of volunteer time to Junior Achievement programs. Allstate believes Good Starts Young® and through programs, like Junior Achievement, Allstate agency owners and employees help inspire youth to reach their full potential and make the world a better place.

“Junior Achievement volunteers are important mentors for young people, bringing our programs to life. JA volunteers share their experiences and skills with students while delivering our programs, teaching them how to manage their money, succeed in the workforce, or start a business that creates jobs and grows the economy. JA’s volunteers are critical to our organization’s success and are a vital part of our mission,” said Sandy Daffé, President of Junior Achievement of Chicago.

Allstate employees are committed to living into the Good Hands pillar of the company by serving not only customers but communities.

April is Allstate’s designated “Bring Out The Good Month” and this award is a perfect launch pad as the whole company prepares to devote even more hours to giving back. Read more about Allstate’s local community involvement and empowering youth to be future leaders here.

Allstate is committed to growing its diverse talent and creating a positive culture and environment where all employees can be successful. Denise feels that attending conferences hosted by groups like NSBE allows Allstate to gain exposure to more candidates from diverse backgrounds and engage in one-on-one dialogue with candidates to talk about why Allstate is a great place to work.

According to Denise, “we are looking for candidates with certain skills, experience and abilities. With that said, we are also very intentional in hiring diverse candidates that bring new and different perspectives, insights and experiences and are passionate about sharing them. We want you to bring your whole self to work!”

The conference is coming up soon and Denise can’t wait to meet other NSBE44 attendees so she can share why she loves Allstate so much. In addition to great career opportunities and workplace culture, Allstate takes social responsibility seriously and encourages and empowers employees to be engaged in volunteering to support our communities here and abroad by “giving back.” Denise feels this sets Allstate apart from other employers. “Allstate isn’t just a job,” Denise says, “it’s an experience. I want people to come to Allstate because we’ll invest in them – their skills, their wellbeing, their interests. It’s a total package.”

Allstate will be at booth #611 and hosting the hospitality suite #328 at NSBE44. Come meet Denise and other Allstaters during the convention and learn even more about upcoming opportunities at Allstate.
