Conning fosters personal relationships between co-workers and their families through workplace events, celebrations, community service, and on-going programs.

Community Service

Conning believes strongly in giving back to the community. To this end, Conning hosts and participates in several annual events to get the Conning team together to help our local communities. Past events include book drives, volunteering for the Greater Hartford Arts Foundation and United Way and participation in National Rebuilding Day.

 

Wellness Program

The mission of the Wellness Committee is to advocate for healthy life choices. They do this by generating awareness of the tools and resources that improve health and welfare, by empowering employees to achieve a healthy lifestyle and by creating a healthy workplace culture. Past activities include flu shots, biometric screenings, "Lunch & Learns,” complimentary chair massages, cooking demos and CPR/First Aid classes and certification.

 

Professional Development

Conning is dedicated to providing continuous support to its employees by fostering personal well-being and professional growth. Please see specific programs listed below:

 

Conning University

Conning has launched a series of introductory training sessions to provide a brief overview of the different business areas for employees. These one-hour sessions (live or recorded) focus on topics such as our investment process, risk management, products and services, operations and insurance research.  They are presented by in-house subject matter experts. 

 

Mentor Program

The mentor program supports the personal growth and career development of employees. Mentoring is an on-going relationship of continuous improvement, learning, coaching, dialogue, and challenge.  The Mentee seeks to gain insights and knowledge from the Mentor, who typically has more experience, maturity and wisdom than the Mentee.  Benefits include job satisfaction, and accelerated skill and career development. The Mentor also benefits from the relationship by learning from the Mentee and from the process.
