How Symmetry Financial Group Is Shaking Up the Insurance Industry: Culture

Sept. 3, 2021

The life insurance industry has been well established for decades. While there haven’t been many changes in how the business works, the insurance industry has experienced some major shifts in the last few years. Symmetry Financial Group (SFG) has revolutionized the way clients view and purchase life insurance. From reaching clients to the tools agents have access to, SFG continues to shake up the insurance industry .

Award-winning culture

Symmetry Financial Group has tailored a set of core values and a support structure for agents that raises the bar of what an insurance company is capable of. This award-winning culture sets Symmetry apart from the rest of the insurance industry.

Importance of culture

The importance of culture cannot be overstated. How your agents interact with clients, each other and with their community sets a precedent for the company. To that end, Symmetry nurtures a positive culture and provides clients and agents with a unique and positive experience within the insurance industry.

Symmetry Financial Group understands that intention is the best way to nurture a positive company culture. Executing a culture that helps its agents grow and succeed requires a vision to make it work. Symmetry leaders make decisions that align with the company’s core values. Symmetry has been recognized by Entrepreneur and Energage’s Top Company Culture List for their outstanding company culture for two consecutive years.

Core values

Given the importance of culture, Symmetry’s core values embody what our agents and corporate staff strive for with every interaction.

Symmetry’s core values:

  • Relationships matter, people come first
  • Relentless pursuit of personal growth
  • Open, honest, and productive communication
  • We do the right thing even when no one is looking
  • We work as a true team and strive to be a positive influence
  • We act like owners because we own it
  • Being of service and doing good in the world
  • We have fun, and we get stuff done

Symmetry believes in compassion for clients, agents and the community. The following values all reflect this notion in some way, whether that be honest communication or doing good in the world. Throughout Symmetry’s network of agents there are plenty of examples of this value being put into action .

How Symmetry agents represent core values in their communities

The fourth core value at Symmetry, we do the right thing even when no one is looking, relates to everything from how agents protect their clients to how they interact with their community. It’s expected that Symmetry agents help families find the best insurance policy for their needs. Beyond that, doing the right thing means being a positive influence in your community, even if it’s not being posted on social media or shared on company calls.

We close the list of core values with a nod to having fun. Symmetry agents are encouraged to find joy in their work. Whether that be a strong sense of comradery with the agents you work with or celebrating the daily wins, both big and small, our agents deserve a sense gratification from their hard work. This also relates back to the idea of a positive work-life balance. Agents are encouraged to make time for their families and enjoy moments with their loved ones outside of work.

Impact, Thrive and Connect

Symmetry Financial Group also understands that outlining a set of core values is not enough — it’s just as important that the actions of the individuals that make up the company reflect those values. Symmetry has a well-established mission that is supported by a set of initiatives that drive that mission home.

Symmetry Impact is a great example of putting our core values into action. The core value, being of service and doing good in the world, directly relates to the Impact initiative. Symmetry Impact is a combination of community volunteer days, partnerships with regional non-profits and national volunteer workdays. Everyone from our CEOs to the corporate staff are involved in initiatives that give back to the community. Symmetry partners with local and national organizations such as the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Bounty and Soul to make a positive impact in our communities and beyond.

Thrive is a wellness program designed to help Symmetry agents align with their highest possible self. This initiative is a direct response to the core value of relentless pursuit of personal growth. This leadership development course uses a systematic approach to personal growth that support Symmetry Financial Group employees and agents in their pursuit of growth. From newsletters and webinars to in-person events, Thrive focuses on personal development to help Symmetry agents succeed.

Last, the Connect initiative hosts monthly calls, meetings and events to allow the women of Symmetry to support one another. With Connect, Symmetry is acting on the core value of we work as a team and strive to be a positive influence. By amplifying their impact in the workplace, Connect gives agents and staff the tools to lift each other and provide a more inclusive work environment.
