And we’re passionately committed to remaining independently owned, which allows all of our decisions to be made in the best interest of our associates and clients—not Wall Street or private equity owners.
Our culture can best be described by our five passions, which help empower our associates to be their very best in both their personal and professional lives:
At MJ, we recognize the importance of strong leaders, which is why we emphasize that each one of our associates—no matter their level of experience or time with the company—should be a leader in their given area. This is also why we focus so heavily on recruiting and employee development. Resourceful, motivated candidates make the best leaders, so when we’re looking to add to our team, those are the type of people we look for.
We aren’t a traditional, top-down managed organization. So one of our greatest strengths is how we collaborate as leaders on common ground—all playing different but equally important positions on the team. Each member of our team is valuable, and we make sure that everyone has a voice.
Our culture of excellence can be attributed to our collaborative, team-oriented approach. By continually sharing, learning, and educating, we keep getting better at what we do. We think that’s a critical aspect of our culture given the constantly changing landscape of the modern insurance world—because the knowledge we gain is passed on to our clients, helping them manage risk, improve efficiency, and ultimately be more successful.
