At State Farm®, our mission is to help people manage the risks of everyday life, recover from the unexpected, and realize their dreams. We are passionate and driven to create possibilities, and we’re serious about helping customers by providing solutions for all of life’s moments. Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there.®
With a passion for serving customers and giving back in our communities, we’ve been doing well by doing good for over 100 years. And we’re happy you decided to get to know us better.
In a small farm town in Central Illinois, insurance salesman G.J. Mecherle didn’t think insurance was priced fairly for farmers. His boss didn’t agree with him, so G.J. left and started his own insurance company. In 1922, G.J. founded State Farm on the principle of fairness. Long story, short: It took off. State Farm has held its own since then as the number one insurer of auto and home in the nation.
We’re all in this together
Diversity and inclusion are central to everything we do. It’s evident in every relationship we have – within the workplace where all associates are treated with respect and dignity, across the marketplace by how we interact with our customers and suppliers, and in the community through charitable giving and community service. Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is reflected in how we value relationships, how we conduct business, and how we lead our organization. We embrace diversity and inclusion because it’s simply the right thing to do.
We’re driven to help
Working at State Farm® takes heart. We help customers protect the things that matter most to them. We help them get back on their feet after an accident or disaster. And, we help people plan ahead for the future they want. Our employees are challenged, guided, and empowered. As a community, we help one another grow professionally and personally. It’s part of who we are and have been since 1922.
In it together
We do business more like a community than a company. Our different ideas, backgrounds, and approaches all come together to influence how we work with one another and help customers. Helping others isn’t just our day job, it’s how we spend time out of the office too. We’re known for how we give back to our communities. Volunteering in schools and around the neighborhood is just another trait that makes working at State Farm® meaningful.
