Schaumburg, Ill. (Dec. 17, 2018) – Assurance, a Top 50 U.S. Brokerage, held its annual holiday party for more than 500 employees and guests at Rockwell on the River in Chicago, Ill. in early December. The party featured a Route 66 motif which was reflected in the evening’s food and décor. There was a dive-bar band, southern cooking, donut bar, as well as games like pool, darts and air hockey. There were also stations where employees could make their own license plates.

The Route 66 party served to complement Assurance’s 2018 year-long theme “R.O.C.K in the U.S.A” Each year, the company selects a song which reflects its upcoming business plans and serves to rally employees behind a common mission. Assurance regularly refers to its employees as “Rock Stars.”

A select few Assurance employees that live up to the ‘Rock Star’ moniker are recognized as Employees of the Year at the annual holiday party event. This year, Jennifer Odegard, Senior Client Service Representative/Supervisor for the Business Insurance division, Cody Green, Senior Account Manager for Surety and Julie LaRocque, Senior Account Manager and Education Consultant for Assurance Financial Services, were all awarded Employee of the Year recognition on December 1, 2018 by Assurance leadership and managers.
