President and CEO
Location: White Plains, NY
PURE Insurance is committed to hiring, developing and rewarding exceptionally talented people. That’s why it created the “PURE Principles,” which promise to create and maintain an environment that allows employees to flourish and to be recognized and appreciated for all they do for the organization. As part of creating that environment, PURE offers a flexible PTO policy that allows for unrestricted vacation, sick or personal time. The company also created a “passion fund” to help employees follow their dreams outside the office. The program gives employees $1,500 per year to pursue personal development in areas in which they are passionate. Employees have used the passion fund for things like tai chi, salsa dancing, photography, racecar driving and more.
“The most important aspect of building a great company culture is commitment. A great culture isn’t created overnight, and it isn’t a set-it-and-forget-it process. It takes commitment from the organization — commitment to hiring the most exceptional people who are not only good at what they do but who are also passionate, empathetic and naturally inquisitive.”
