Every month, Schwartz Insurance Group selects a peer-nominated associate to receive a Core Value Award. The winner is chosen because they "lived" one of our agency's core values - typically an event or accomplishment above and beyond the call of duty in serving our customers. This month, Jackie Cordle has "lived" our core value of "Building on a Legacy." Here's her story:
Teamwork is what makes a team special – and our personal lines team is special in showing how much they care for each other and for all of our valued customers.
When one of four people was on medical leave for the week, the team could have survived. But, it was a HUGE relief to know – and our customers greatly appreciated – that the one person who had started working from home was back IN the office to help!
Jackie Cordle is always willing to do right by her team and her customers. She steps up to help at every opportunity. She is Building on a Legacy!
Here, in her own words, is a little more information about Jackie:
How long have you been working in the insurance industry? When did you join the team at Schwartz Insurance Group?
I have been in the insurance industry since 1987, and I joined Schwartz Insurance Group on April 1, 2012. Working here has been a very positive experience for me.
What's the best thing about working as a Personal Insurance Advocate?
The best thing about my job is being able to help people make sure they are adequately insured in the event of a loss. Whenever a disaster strikes, we always help and guide our clients to do what is best for their family and property. Since I became an insurance advocate, I've met a lot of great people!
What's the most important thing you've learned from a client or fellow Schwartz Insurance Group employee?
To be the best you can be all of the time. Live each day to the fullest. You never know when your health may fail you, or when you may lose someone you love.
If you could go back in time and give your eighteen-year-old self a bit of advice, what would it be?
If I could go back in time, I would tell myself to go to college and stay in school until I earned a Bachelor's Degree.
Basketball, baseball or football?
None of the above. Rather than watching sports, I prefer to spend my free time sewing or quilting.
Rock and roll or country music?
Rock and roll! I love to listen to the oldies on WAKY radio.
What brings you true happiness?
Being with my family and friends truly makes me happy. I have been married for forty-one years and I could not be any happier than I am right now!
Congratulations, Jackie, on your Core Value Award - and thank you for doing such a great job for Schwartz Insurance Group. You are appreciated!
