Employer Spotlight for January 24, 2012: Farmers Insurance


About the company:

We began our journey in 1928 when two men who shared a dream of providing a quality insurance product at a reasonable price opened the doors to the Farmers Automobile Inter-Insurance Exchange in Los Angeles. In the decades that followed we've grown and adapted to meet the changing needs of Americans, but one constant has remained. We have an unwavering commitment to upholding the ideals with which we began by providing industry-leading products and services to the customers we're privileged to serve. Today, Farmers Insurance Group of Companies is one of the country's largest insurers of vehicles, homes and small businesses and provides a wide range of other insurance and financial services products.

Farmers is proud to serve more than 10 million households with more than 20 million individual policies across all 50 states through the efforts of over 50,000 exclusive and independent agents and nearly 24,000 employees.
