It's been about two years since I began work here at Liberty Mutual. The first day I came to work I noticed our company's creed on the wall:
"...we are engaged in a great mutual enterprise. It is great because it seeks to prevent crippling injuries and death by removing the causes of home, highway, and work accidents. It is great because it deals in the relief of pain and sorrow and fear and loss. It is great because it works to preserve and protect the things people earn and build and own and cherish. Its true greatness will be measured by our power to help people live safer, more secure lives."
Today, I read that creed again and I was reminded of why I like working here.
This is a HUGE company and it would be easy for an entity this size to become a corporate monster interested in profits at the expense of anyone it could sieze them from. But I've always felt, from the first day onward, that I work for a company that really does endeavor to help its clients and employees to live safer, more secure lives. That makes me feel good about working here and it makes me glad when I tell other people who I work for and what I do.
