An Insider's view of Pie Insurance

How does your team reward individual success?

Our Customer Care team rewards success by giving "snaps" in team and company slack channels. We like to verbally recognize people in our team meetings by giving them a shout out and telling them they are valuable to the team and are appreciated! It is important to also be conscious of how people like to be recognized and not put people "on blast".

Seika

Customer Success Working Team Lead

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

As a Sales Manager, I work closely with Underwriting & Customer Care on improving our processes to be more efficient from quote to issuance. With Marketing, I help with campaign initiatives to roll out to new and old prospects. I also connect with our UX & Product Teams to provide feedback on ways to enhance our online quote flow for our customers.
