Recently, our employees stepped up to raise awareness for life insurance at our Kansas City facility during an employee “fun” walk and vendor fair. The Life Insurance Awareness Month #Steps2Protect walk gave employees a chance to partake in some healthy exercise and talk to vendors like insurance agents, the fire department and health coaches about ways to protect their loved ones.
According to the 2017 Insurance Barometer study, 41% of Americans still do not have any life insurance. ExamOne is a proud supporter of Life Insurance Awareness Month and we are using this time to help change that statistic by educating individuals on the necessary steps to protect their family with life insurance. Our own employees have shared stories about how life insurance impacted their families.
“My brother’s life insurance policy brought us tremendous relief and the comfort of knowing we had the funds needed and that his children would be taken care of. No one thinks that at the age of 38 they would have to deal with a sudden death. His policy was a blessing to our family and his children at a very difficult time in our lives. We are so thankful he was thoughtful enough to obtain life insurance at a young age and learned that the perfect time to do this is NOW and not sometime down the road.” – Quest employee
In addition to events like the walk in Lenexa, KS and our offices in San Diego and Lee’s Summit, MO, ExamOne is promoting life insurance with an awareness video and sponsoring a scholarship with the Life Happens foundation this year. The foundation receives hundreds of applications each year from students sharing their stories on how life insurance affected them–either through the benefit or the lack of it. Our leadership team will review a selection of candidates and choose one to receive a $5,000 college scholarship.
“We are honored to participate in such an important program and hope it will make a difference in the next chapter of these young lives.” -Troy Hartman, ExamOne President
