We_love_Insurance_Graphics-02-1.jpgThis Sunday millions of people will be making romantic gestures with roses and chocolates to express their love and fidelity to their Valentine. At Marsh & McLennan Agency, we’ve only had eyes for insurance for over a century.

To celebrate Valentine’s Day we asked some of our more passionate associates to tell us what keeps the spark alive when it comes to loving insurance.

"I LOVE to help my clients make their employees happy. Our impact starts with the employer and resonates all the way through the employees and their families. It’s an amazing feeling to be able to provide peace of mind and expertise to so many." - Jaymee Kelso, Client Manager II, Employee Benefits Orange County

"When my clients arrive to work each day, what is top of mind for them…Business Insurance? I certainly hope not! Running and growing a business requires their full attention. Insurance and risk management is my job. I love helping them do theirs." – Kevin Mirsky, Principal, Property + Casualty San Francisco

Associate Spotlight: Jaymee Kelso

By Daniela Posada, Corporate Recruiter

Like many associates here at Marsh & McLennan Agency, Jaymee was referred to her position by a former colleague, who is now a MMA principal. After working in the Property & Casualty side for many years, Jaymee made the move to Employee Benefits in 2006. Unlike most, Jaymee has seen both sides, but found her passion working with clients in the Employee Benefits Division.

Growth & Opportunity

“The growth opportunity attracted me to Marsh & McLennan Agency”. With MMA's Premier Partnership with Brandman University, Jaymee was able to take advantage of the opportunity and go back to school for her Master’s Degree in business.  “I have always played with the thought of going back to school for my Master’s Degree but financially could not take on the risk.  When the opportunity came knocking at my door as an employee at MMA, I knew I could not pass it up.  I will be graduating in the Fall of 2015 with my MBA degree with an emphasis and certificate in Organizational Leadership.”

Productivity and Sustainability: 5 Tips for a Greener Workplace

Every April, Marsh & McLennan Agency - West hosts Spring Cleaning Week to encourage associates to clean up, get organized and this year, create a sustainable workplace.

According to a recent UCLA study**, employees who perceive their company to be environmentally friendly typically have higher morale and are more motivated, resulting in higher productivity.

Here are 5 tips to kick-start your sustainability program and help employees make a difference at work and in the community.
