Client Background and Primary Accountabilities:

Our Client:

Our retained client Pacific Home Warranty is a small, family oriented company and at their core, they are about creating a family and team environment that works very closely together so you’ll never feel alone or stranded along the way. They have your back and they only succeed when you succeed!

When Progressive and Pacific Home Warranty first opened their doors over ten years ago, General Manager and Culture Creator Roberta Garritty knew she wanted to do something special.  She wanted to create a place where teammates actually got excited to come to work and go the extra mile for their clients and for each other. She also knew this wouldn’t be easy, after all, they are in the insurance industry and that’s not out of this world exciting!   It didn’t take long before she began creating a workplace culture unlike anything done before, an Intentional Culture, an Intentional Culture that started with getting the right people on the bus.

To accomplish all of this, Roberta had to take a step back from the day-to day operations to focus on what has become the backbone of who they are and what they do, and their company Core Values.  Once Robi had identified all the key elements that make them who they are, the rest began to fall into place.  Staying true to these values has proven successful as Roberta continues to find right people for the bus on the road of Culture Done Right.

Culture Done Right is a philosophy that has created a very unique and special work environment that is hard to put into words.  Anytime you swing by our client’s office you’ll run into friends, family members, roommates, couples, and even dogs!  Yes, they currently have four canine counselors roaming their office and it’s an experience you need to see to believe.   If you join Pacific Home Warranty, it won’t take you long to begin to experience all the ways they are unique. 

The genuine welcoming atmosphere to their office brings everyone together and they can assure you, the moment you take that first step into our client’s building, you become family! You will see that you have become part of a team that is always willing to go the extra mile for each other, their clients and the world around them, and they love to celebrate successes both big and small. 

Culture Done Right along with their Core Values is felt in everything that they do and it is no coincidence. Every initiative, policy, and decision is made with a purpose and if it doesn’t support their core values, it doesn’t fly! Having an intentional culture takes courage, but take it from them – it’s worth it!
