Mercury employees champion causes across the country that leave a lasting positive effect on the communities we serve. Our philanthropic efforts through “Mercury Cares” take many forms, but always focus on changing someone’s life for the better. Why? Because it’s in our nature to help people in need. Whether providing a single mother with a reliable vehicle to get to a new job or sending a care package to brighten a soldier’s day, Mercury cares.
Here are just a few of the programs the company and our employees and agents support.
Mercury’s mission is to protect policyholders and provide them with the peace of mind that comes from knowing we’ll be there for them in their time of need. We’ll be there to help get their lives back together if they get into accident or disaster strikes, but we also want to help prevent accidents before they happen, so we’ve created a variety of programs and tools to do just that.
Mercury Insurance and its employees have a long history of supporting the men and women who bravely serve in our nation’s military at home and overseas. Mercury’s founder and chairman, George Joseph, is a WWII veteran who flew 50 missions as a B-17 navigator over Italy and North Africa, and many of our employees are veterans themselves. They know firsthand how difficult it can be when they’re separated from friends and family, so they have led the effort to create a companywide initiative to send care packages to servicemen and women deployed overseas.
We want to make the communities in which we live, work and do business to be better for everyone. Whether it is donating monies to bring technology and educational programs to inner-city schools, helping build homes or sending funds for humanitarian relief, Mercury cares about the communities we serve.
Mercury supports a healthy environment for its employees, which inspired My Health at Mercury – a work and personal life balance. Employees who participate in My Health at Mercury can earn points towards incentives for taking steps to improve their wellbeing, which includes weight loss, quitting smoking and more. Employees have been huge supporters of Mercury’s wellbeing program, helping Mercury secure a 2016 Limeade Limelight Award for Engagement Leaps.
