What’s an Insurance Broker?
In simple terms, a broker purchases insurance for their clients. But there’s so much more to it than that. Brokers advocate, provide advice, research and compare insurance coverages and options, and help in time of need with claims.
A broker at Staebler does even more. There’s a strong culture at Staebler that includes wellness, employee engagement, and community giveback. Our Charity & Community Committee is entirely staff run and provides local organizations with funds, donations, and volunteers.
Staebler also prides itself on innovation not only for its clients but also its team, delivering crucial service in the most effective way. Our team enjoys perks like flex time, healthy life balance days, and a complete benefits package.
