According to the Mayo Clinic, volunteering “reduces stress and increases positive, relaxed feelings.”1 Employees at Argo Group know this well. They experience it first-hand by joining local Community Relations Committees (CRCs) and utilizing the tools Argo provides to improve their communities and connect with peers.

“Working side by side at an event gives you a lot more opportunities to talk and get to know each other. You get to meet new colleagues, colleagues you rarely see in the office, and share those experiences together.”

“When you give, you become a happier person. Studies have shown that this is proven to also reduce depression. I find it fulfilling. There’s something going on psychologically that gratifies me.”
Katherine Subasic, Assistant General Counsel, Chairperson of New York City CRC
“Just knowing we have the resources to join a CRC in our area, volunteer our time, or make charitable donations helps employees feel supported by Argo in taking actions that serve a greater purpose.”
