Insurance is a promise of safety and protection, a promise that points to the future. HUB employees live this promise every day, tailoring the products and services our clients need and, through HUB GIVES, helping to make their communities stronger, today and tomorrow.

HUB GIVES is a formal program that encourages HUB employees to donate their time, creativity, passion and connections to community projects. Each Regional HUB office chooses a local organization or cause and develops a project that will make a difference where it’s needed, from fighting disease to working with families in need, to improving the lives or senior citizens and youth.

HUB GIVES for maximum impact

Service is one of our founding values – not an abstract concept but a commitment. And we believe that no one deserves that commitment more than our clients and the communities in which we all live and work.  Each regional hub has adopted a project in its region that meets the following criteria:

  • GIVE – The project must be founded on the spirit of giving.
  • INVEST – The project must lay a foundation for the future investment of time and resources and be sustainable in a way that employees will share with pride.
  • VOLUNTEER – The project must provide employees with the opportunity to volunteer, as individuals and together, to promote community pride within the organization.
  • ENGAGE – The project must engage as many employees as possible, as well as clients, partners and the community itself, in making a meaningful contribution.
  • SERVE – The project must serve a real community need.

We offer a dynamic benefits program that is rooted in your current needs yet evolves as those needs change over time. We are committed to providing you with the tools and resources you need to maximize your benefits portfolio.


We believe in the value of a wellness strategy to build morale and support the personal health goals of our employees. We’re proud to offer our employees medical plans that not only provide coverage for illness and injury, but also enable you and your family to focus on staying well. Outside of offering a portfolio of medical plans to support our employees’ well-being, we’ve worked hard to build a comprehensive program reflecting our values and vision to boost engagement and motivation.

HUB Healthy Habits (H3) was created to educate, activate, and support employee engagement in total health and wellbeing, encouraging employees to put healthy ideas into action in and out of the office. On-site health committees lead in-office health initiatives, including monthly educational health and fitness activities.

  • Technology: Portal on the HUB intranet and mobile app delivers health campaigns and contests.
  • Tools: Break rooms designed by our employees outfitted with balls, bands, and light weights.
  • Healthy challenges: Challenges and campaigns with prizes for meeting fitness and nutrition goals.
  • Health screening & coaching: Track your health and performance. Health coaches are available to all employees.


Retirement savings plans: You choose how much to deposit each pay period and how your money is invested.

Travel accident insurance: HUB’s Travel Accident benefit covers injuries and death sustained during business travel. We also provide 24/7 access to personal and emergency assistance when you are traveling for business or personal reasons, including dependents traveling with you.

Flexible spending & parking and transit programs: Flexible spending accounts allow you to pay for eligible health and/or dependent care expenses on a pre-tax basis. You can also use pre-tax dollars to pay for parking and transit expenses and can enroll in the program at any point during the year.


MyHUB Discounts: All HUB employees have access to discounts on automotive, electronic, consumer, educational assistance, home security, travel, home, and work-life products and services.

Employee Assistance Program (EAP): We understand it can be difficult to manage family, work-related and personal issues. That’s why we offer an EAP at no cost to you. To help guide you through difficult situations or simply assist you with day-to-day tasks like finding a last-minute dog sitter, trained professionals work with you as you search for solutions. The program is completely confidential and can help you work through issues related to: emotional well-being, family life, healthy living, and legal or financial matters.

Group auto & home insurance: You have the option of purchasing personal lines of auto and home insurance at discounted rates.

Group legal plan: You have the option of enrolling in the group legal plan. This plan provides access to legal assistance for matters concerning estate planning, real estate, family law, consumer protection and more.

    Strong sense of ownership and accountability in your role; Supportive leadership; Team performance bonuses (we are all in this together); Over 450 agencies locally run but organically united - this makes HUB International incredibly flexible and gives this insurance broker unique bargaining power with insurance carriers and third party services on behalf of the employer groups it serves.


    Rapid and constant growth has its challenges, but they are absolutely worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to fold in the new acquisitions into one unified organism that hums, much like folding unique ingredients into one superior dish, or adding musical notes to create a symphony.

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at HUB International (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2016.


    They were kind enough to be discreet as I was employed elsewhere. They were also willing to meet up with me after hours and though they needed me right away, allowed me to give my employer a 2 week notice. I met with one of the agents and the HR person. Though I did not have all the experience they were looking for, they liked my enthusiasm and felt I was trainable and felt we have the same core ethics.
