USI Honored for Corporate Social Responsibility and Employee Communications Campaigns
USI Insurance Services (“USI”) received two Awards of Excellence for corporate communications at the 58th Insurance Marketing Communications Association (IMCA) Showcase Awards last month during a gala ceremony at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore on the Inner Harbor in Baltimore, Maryland. The Company was honored in the category of “Employee Communications Campaigns” for the USI Summit Awards program, and in the category of “Corporate Social Responsibility” for the USI Gives Back campaign.
“We congratulate USI Insurance Services for the two Awards of Excellence they won at the 2016 IMCA Showcase Awards Gala,” said Mark Friedlander, board chair of IMCA and head of corporate communications at The Main Street America Group. “USI was one of several first-time entrants that captured honors this year. Their award-winning entries are a great example of the high-quality work being produced by insurance marketing and communications professionals across our industry.”
Michael J. Sicard, USI chairman and CEO, said: “We are excited to be recognized by IMCA for excellence in corporate communications for both our USI Gives Back campaign and USI Summit Awards program. Our employees have a passion for getting involved and helping others who are in need, and USI Gives Back is the heart of our corporate social responsibility platform, underscoring the deep roots we have in over 140 communities across the country. We are equally proud of being honored for our employee communications efforts surrounding the USI Summit Awards. This annual recognition program is our way of honoring outstanding associates who build our brand every day, in their daily interactions with clients, prospects, carriers and other associates. Congratulations to our two internal teams for their innovative and creative work on making these programs so memorable and successful.”
