Meet Core Value Winner: Sharon Ehresman - January 2016

January 14, 2016

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, Sharon Ehresman has "lived" our core value of "Success Will Come." Here is her story:

Unflappable: “Having or showing calmness in a crisis.”  Often a required skillset in insurance, it’s clearly not part of everyone’s persona.  But, when things are hopping, it’s a really nice thing to have.

Benefits are hopping in the fall, especially when larger employers make changes and timing of ID’s and proof of coverage becomes touchy.  That was our reality over the past few weeks and, fortunately, unflappability is what we gained with hiring new talent.

Sharon Ehresman took the frantic calls in stride.  She handled the frenetic pace with grace.  She is clearly in tune with the core value of Success Will Come. 

Here, in her own words, is a little more information about Sharon:
