Why Should You Join Us?
It’s simple: our culture, our people and our dedication.
Everything we do at HORAN is guided by 27 Fundamentals—our value statements tied to specific actions we apply to our day-to-day work. We call this The HORAN Way. These fundamentals drive our unique Employee Experience—how we recognize & celebrate success, keep things fun and encourage our teams to give back & pay it forward.
We recognize that the quality, motivation and performance of our employees are the key factors in achieving our success. Our associates are the most valued assets of our company and have a shared commitment to fulfilling our mission. As a HORAN employee, you will work hard but also learn from the very best.
We hold our staff to a higher-level of expectations; our culture is built around assisting every employee reach his or her full potential. We reward commitment and flawless execution while being responsive to the needs of our employees and their families. We promote based on merit and hire from within whenever possible which is proven by many associates that currently hold leadership and shareholder positions. Almost a quarter of our employees have worked at HORAN for 10 or more years.
We have an Annual Employee Awards program where we ask our employees to nominate their peers for eight award categories, from the “Rookie of the Year” to our “Agency Builder”. In 2020, 100% of our employees nominated as least one of their peers for an award (and wrote a total of 63 pages of commentary to support their nominations!)
Not only are we dedicated to improving the lives of our clients; we are also committed to ensuring our employees enjoy the time they spend at work. Keeping things fun is another essential element of our employee experience. In a typical year, we host an array of employee events including an Annual Holiday Party, HORAN Fundamental events, staff luncheons, monthly happy hours, etc. COVID forced us to get a little creative in 2020, we had daily staff trivia questions, virtual yoga classes, virtual happy hours and even a virtual visit from Fiona the Hippo!
As much as we give to our teams, we encourage them to give back to our community. We have dedicated staff-led committees to plan month-long fundraising activities for both the United Way and Artswave. In 2020, nearly 100% of our staff contributed to these causes through payroll deductions and one-time contributions.
