At Christensen Group, we treat our employees like people. We trust you to get your work done — and done well. And we also understand that everyone has families, social lives and important things going on outside of the office. It's this balance and understanding that keeps people around — because we want you around. At the heart of it all, we care. We care about our clients, we care about the carrier partners and we care about one another; professionally and personally.
The Minneapolis/St Paul Business Journal and Business Insurance have named Christensen Group Insurance a 2020 Best Place to work in the Twin Cities! If you're interested in joining our growing team, please don't hesitate to get in touch!
We’re committed to understanding the businesses we serve and finding solutions that enable those businesses to grow. As an employee, that means you are constantly learning and developing through on-the-job experiences to best serve your clients. Our leadership focuses on bringing classroom-type learning experiences to our employees and creating an environment where we can learn from each other’s diverse experiences. Ultimately, we believe you own your career journey, and we have leaders and mentors to support you along the way, whichever path you choose.
If you are looking to start and grow your career, Christensen Group is the place to do it. They welcomed me with open arms and have taught me everything I need to know in order to continuously grow and succeed – both personally and professionally. CG is filled with the most dedicated and intelligent individuals, who are eager to help develop and teach new individuals to the insurance industry. I couldn’t think of a better place to start, and to continue my career.
Whether you’re graduating college or looking to transition into an office-type job, CG is a great place to start and ultimately, stay. CG works well to equate college experience with prior work experience, so anyone starting out their career has an opportunity to apply. Lastly, I am very grateful to work for a company that dedicates time and resources to their employees to ensure personal and professional growth. I highly recommend considering CG as the main choice when looking to start a long, successful, and rewarding career in insurance.
Upon graduation I started out as a Client Advocate at Christensen Group and immediately felt welcomed by the entire company. The agency culture provides the atmosphere to grow and develop both professionally and personally. I am extremely fortunate to be working for an organization that values their employees and was recognized with the “2020 Best Places to work” award.
A large part of our compensation package is the Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). This is one of the best retirement plans around — and is provided to all employees. If you want more information on ESOPs and what it could mean for you, click here.
As we continue to grow, we continue to emphasize the importance of connections among co-workers. Think big, act small is a key a part of who we are and how we show up for one another. We prioritize teams and department gatherings, creating opportunities to communicate, learn, and have fun together. Our leadership team supports and encourages our Culture & Wellness Committee in improving employee health and promoting a fun culture every day. Things like lunch trivia, wellness challenges and karaoke are not uncommon at our office.
We believe in giving back to the communities we work and live in. Our Charity & Community Involvement Committee brings a variety of volunteer events to our office and oversees our Employer Donation Match program. Whether it’s donating blood, packing snacks for the homeless or taking a Polar Plunge, we find ways to make a difference in our communities.
Most people spend the majority of their adult lives at their workplace — and we know that burning some energy is important during the day. So when we built out our new office , we made sure to include some space for people to stay fit, blow off some steam and get their sweat on.
