Fidelity Life named one of Chicago’s Top Workplaces for 2021

Serving everyday Americans and their families is at the heart of our mission at Fidelity Life. We’re proud to be an organization that truly lives by our Company values and makes a positive difference in the lives of our customers—and of our own colleagues.

And now, we’re proud to announce we’ve been named a Top Workplace for 2021 by the Chicago Tribune! It’s a testament to what we’ve known all along: our employees’ hard work and dedication has truly resulted in creating a winning culture. We’re privileged to join this elite list of only 200 companies named by the Chicago Tribune this year.

What makes this award even more special is that it’s based solely on feedback from our employees—the best “judges” we could ask for. For the award, the Chicago Tribune worked with Energage, LLC, a workplace survey specialist, to conduct a Company-wide, anonymous survey to measure critical culture-drivers across the organization—including confidence in Company leadership, execution of goals, and connection among colleagues. This gave us direct insight into what’s most important to our employees and where we have room to grow.

“We would not be who we are today without the members of our team,” said Jim Harkensee, President and Chief Operating Officer of Fidelity Life. “An award like this is one that means the most—because without a Company of passionate and engaged employees, we cannot continue to be successful in helping everyday Americans protect their families and their future.”

As we’ve learned, especially since March 2020, workplace culture isn’t confined to an office space. We’re proud of our team for launching sustainable, Company-wide initiatives to promote health and wellness, help us better understand our differences, and ensure our values are rooted in everything we do. And we’ve made it a priority to work to foster a workplace that’s inclusive—one where each of us can come to work and perform at our best.

A hearty thank you to each member of the team for participating in the Energage survey and for helping us earn this award. We look forward to another year of success, learning, and growth!
