In 1906, our founder Leo Samuel chartered the first life insurance company based in Portland to champion the needs of the local community. Over 100 years later, we proudly continue to carry that torch and walk in the footsteps of our founder through our own commitment to the community.
Vibrant, healthy communities provide new opportunities and a positive environment in which to live and work. We want to do our part to help build and maintain such communities. Our ongoing investments in social services, health, arts, education, environmental and civic causes are how we build lasting relationships with our employees, our customers and the community at large. Mr. Samuel's renowned spirit of community service lives on through our charitable giving and employee volunteer programs nationwide.Build your career on a foundation that puts people first.
Did you know that people who find their fit with The Standard tend to make their careers here? That's something we're proud of and a testament to how we "walk the talk" every day.
Our people always look for opportunities to go the extra mile whether it's for a customer or a colleague. From a hand-delivered check to a customer in need or personal encouragement as a customer overcame a disability and started a new career, to driving an injured co-worker to a sales meeting he refused to miss, these are the hallmarks of a company where people are valued and inspired.
We never lose sight of the fact that small gestures can make a big difference.
