Perks and Programs

We asked Inspirien to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Board Meetings: We have begun including employees in the Board Meetings. This is done on a rotation basis. However, all employees are invited to attend lunch after each Board Meeting with all of the Board Members. We recently did a round robin to do introductions, and it was amazing. We have Board Members and Employees who have been with the company since its inception and they had never met before. The Board and the Employees have overwhelmingly shared how much they appreciated this time together to listen and share.
  • Coffee Talks: The President and CEO does monthly Coffee Talks with 2-3 employees in different roles within the company. This is done on a rotation so that all employees get a chance to attend. Once all employees have experienced a coffee talk session, the rotation begins again. The goal of these informal meetings is to get to know each other. There is no formal agenda, but we tend to focus on strategy and input from the employees. This is where the employee input came from in the development of the Vision. When new insights or strategies arise in those meetings, it is called out by telling the participants to "gossip around the water cooler".
  • Bonus: 2015 was the first year that employees received a bonus. We where able to give all employees a meaningful bonus for 2016. This was a passion for the Board and leadership to ensure that employees were recognized and thanked for their contributions to a successful financial year even in the midst of the major organizational restructuring efforts.
  • Continuing Education: We offer a wide range of opportunities at no cost to employees in order to help them gain accreditation and continuing education credit reimbursement to retain it. We also cover the expense of the materials and testing as long as the employee passes. We have several individuals with licenses, and Insperien pays for their renewals. They are critical to our industry and include clinical, legal, and professional licenses. We also provide a tuition reimbursement program for employees seeking higher education.
  • Seasonal Celebrations: Fall Tailgating - Inspirien is in the heart of Alabama and SEC football. We had a celebration on the Friday before College Football started. Employees were encouraged to show support of their teams by wearing their favorite team gear. We had a potluck and grilled burgers and hot dogs. Thanksgiving - We have a tradition of having one employee make breakfast for the staff around Thanksgiving. We recorded a home video of all the staff wishing all of our customers a Happy Thanksgiving and we sent it out via email. Christmas - We had a wonderful holiday party with a nice catered lunch. We played games and gave gift cards to all employees.
  • Yoga Fridays: All employees are invited to join in participating in yoga every Friday. We have a licensed yoga instructor come onsite to conduct a one hour yoga class at no cost to employees during working hours. Coastal Insurance Company covers the cost in full and allows employees to bring a guest to the weekly classes. When class is complete employees are allowed to leave for the day.

    How to Get Hired

    We asked Inspirien for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.

    What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?

    Inspirien is looking to build the best talent - period.  Our vision addresses a desire to develop a differentiated business model that combines people, process and structure.  It breaks down the barriers of a traditional hierarchical business models and creates an empowered culture rooted in a living value system. We provide knowledge of the business and opportunities to develop in order for employees to reach their full potential.  Therefore we are extremely aware that with great power comes great responsibility.  So, we look for individuals who can not only achieve the role outlined in the job description but also exhibit our Core Values which include; Integrity, Trust, Respect, Excellence, Accountability, Acknowledgement, Inspiration, Stewardship and Collaboration.

    What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

    Even though our contact information is on the website, we often leverage recruiters due to the highly specialized field of insurance we provide to the healthcare community in Alabama.  However, we do have a wide array of jobs varying in expertise.  Inspirien (formerlyCoastal Insurance Company) just underwent  a name change and a branding exercise to help our outside appearance match our remarkable service inside.  This includes all of our social media and web presence.  While we are “under construction”, I would encourage prospective employees to exhibit their inspiration and innovation in reaching us.  After all, that is how we have selected our new name.  .

    Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

    We are looking to add staff in the following areas: Innovation Roles in Project Management; Business Economics Roles in Underwriting; Operations Roles in Compliance, Claims and Risk Management.

    What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?

    We are exploring ways to be more effective with recruiting efforts. We leverage local recruiters. We also post jobs on Indeed, LinkedIn and Career Builders. This is an area that we are continuing to explore our options.
