    April Galda, Chief Culture Office of Global Atlantic shared her thoughts on working from home. "I've been trying to figure out why this new normal feels so hard. No commute, no pants with a zipper, lots of time with family. So it should be easy, right? But it's not." And that is okay.

At Global Atlantic, we embrace a proactive culture that seeks first to understand the financial challenges Americans face today and devise practical solutions to help them achieve their objectives.

This mindset stems from our company values, which embody our past, reflect our present, and are guideposts for our future. While other companies may define the values they aspire to, we have identified those that truly are ingrained in our business and our people.

We strive to attract and develop a diverse team of talented individuals who reinforce our culture. We are dedicated to advancing their careers in the spirit of meritocracy.

We are honest, fair and transparent in all aspects of our business. We deeply value our reputation and client relationships.

We are committed to building meaningful relationships and providing quality interactions for all stakeholders.

Stewardship

Global Atlantic  is the fastest growing company in the annuity industry over the last five-year period, based on LIMRA participant reports. No other company with at least $300 million in sales grew faster from the start of 2013 to year-end 2017.

Global Atlantic first broke the $1 billion mark in 2012 with $1.3 billion in sales, and annual sales grew each year, reaching $5.6 billion in 2016. During this time, sales grew by an annual average of 62%. Global Atlantic’s annuities are distributed through approximately 200 banks and broker-dealers, as well as select independent marketing organizations, covering about half of the overall annuity marketplace.

“The fact that we’ve experienced this growth in the early stages of our market penetration is a testament to the quality of the distribution relationships we have forged,” said Paula Nelson, Head of Retirement Distribution. “We appreciate our distribution partners and the mutually meaningful relationships we’ve developed.” 

Impacting the Lives of Others In and Out of the Office

 Global Atlantic believes we have a responsibility to support the communities where we work, and we focus our charitable efforts around this community-oriented philosophy.

Employees in each office are empowered to locally choose the organizations we support to make a difference where we live and work.


Global Atlantic allocates funds each year for each of our nine offices' local charitable endeavors.


Volunteer days provide an opportunity for employees to spend a day out of the office, giving back to the local community. We use a system called Involvesoft that allows employees to search for volunteer opportunities, sign up, volunteer, and track hours. 


A Matching Gift Program encourages personal giving by matching employee charitable donations to eligible organizations.
