Serving our communities

We’re committed to serving the communities where we work and live.


Grange’s multi-faceted community relations program includes financial support, volunteerism and in-kind donations. We’re proud to lend a hand to organizations that transform lives, provide comfort and enrich the community.

“Diversity and inclusion encompasses

all the ways that we are different as

human beings, not just race and gender.

Having diversity in thought, experiences

and perspectives are equally as important.”

Priscilla Hammonds,

Diversity & Inclusion Leader

Investing in our associates

We know the power of our company ultimately comes from our associates. Investing in them is an investment in our success, our agents’ success and the service we deliver to policyholders.


Grange believes strongly in partnering with associates to help them build their careers. Leadership development programs, like Emerging Leaders and LeaderView, help us build and retain high-potential talent. Participation grows each year and, in 2015, 44 associates took part in one of these programs.


Recruiting new talent is especially important to Grange’s future, and to the future of the insurance industry. In 2015, we expanded our associate resource groups geared toward women and young professionals.

And, we welcomed 30 interns into the 2015 program, which gives young professionals the opportunity to collaborate and present on a corporate project over a 10-week period.


Having a workforce that represents multiple generations is important, but only one piece of the puzzle. In early 2015, we hired a new Diversity & Inclusion Leader, Priscilla Hammonds, to help us create and support a more diverse and inclusive associate and agent base for the good of Grange, its agents and customers.
