VAN WERT, Ohio, June 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Central Insurance, a leading property and casualty insurer, last week announced a new company-wide benefits program aimed at creating an unparalleled employee experience that reflects the commitment of the company towards relationships.

The expanded policy came into effect on June 13, 2022.

“At Central Insurance, we invest in our people and treat each of our employees like owners. When our team heard that paid time off was an area for improvement, we took action,” said Evan Purmort, CEO and President. “The insurance industry is changing rapidly and our benefits package needed to reflect a workplace built for the future. That’s why we developed our policy to be over 75% of what the best tech companies are currently offering. This announcement marks a critical milestone for not just our company, but the industry as a whole.”

The revamped perk set includes the following:

  • Additional paid leave: Each new hire will receive 20 vacation days at the start of their hire date. In addition, employees with between 10 and 24 years of service will receive 25 days and those with more than 25 years of service will receive 30 days.

  • Addition of paid leave for caregivers: To further support employees and their families, Central Insurance is increasing compassionate care leave from zero to eight weeks with 100% pay to care for a family member with a serious medical condition.
