Q4: Celebrating the Holidays and Giving Back at NYCM Insurance

As we are nearing the end of this year and looking forward into the next, we can all admit that 2020 was not as expected. Nevertheless, most of Team NYCM has settled into working from home and the changes this year has brought with it. 
Throughout the course of Q4, we took a deep dive into what it meant to celebrate while social distancing and got creative when it came to giving back to our communities in a time of great need. 
Read on for an inside look at the last three months of 2020 at NYCM. 

A Quarantine Halloween

A group of our awesome NYCM essential workers brought Halloween to life this October with a festive drive-through event! Employees were invited to drive their families through the trick-or-treating line at our Edmeston office, bringing smiles to everyone this season!

Celebrating Wellness

Each October we begin a new round of our corporate wellness program, known as Passport to Wellness. NYCM strives to incorporate all aspects of wellness into everyday life to promote and sustain engagement in everything that we do.  
Employees are encouraged to earn stamps toward an end-of-year reward by participating in Passport to Wellness activities and quarterly challenges. Incentives are based on the number of stamps earned throughout the year. Stamps can be earned in categories such as fitness, nutrition, education, social, and self-care.  Employees company-wide are welcome to join and earn rewards!

Fire Prevention Week

NYCM promoted Fire Prevention Week virtually this year, offering tips and fire prevention facts to aid in avoiding disaster in your home. We created useful graphics, like the image you see above, that are easy to share with friends and family.

Supporting Our Community 

NYCM is proud to support over 600 causes annually, in addition to the dollars raised by employees who are passionate about matters close to their hearts. 
NYCM employees are given 16 hours of paid time off to use throughout the year towards volunteer opportunities that mean the most to them. Despite COVID, 594 hours of volunteer work were completed this year by NYCM employees!
Due to the circumstances surrounding 2020, many organizations were forced to gather online this year.  Nevertheless, we were excited for the opportunity to continue to support a variety of causes such as  The American Cancer Society’s  2020 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Event and the American Heart Association’s Cycle Nation 2020 event.  We are also  proud supporters of “The Pit Run”, which is held in memory of the late Ricky J. “Pit” Parisian, and the  Sitrin Health Care Center’s 9th Annual Stars & Stripes Run-Walk for our Nation’s Heroes.  

Recognizing Our Veterans at NYCM Insurance

Every year on November 11th, veterans are recognized for their selfless service and dedication to our country. Click here to read about some of our amazing service men and women who, after serving our nation, continue to dedicate their time to helping people in other ways at NYCM Insurance.

Holiday Gift to Employees

In the spirit of giving back, NYCM decided to once again partner with Mitscoots Outfitters! NYCM employees were gifted with a voucher to be used at Miscoots.com, who  in turn match each purchase with an item of equal quality to go to someone in need!
Mitscoots Outfitters makes 100% American sourced and manufactured gear and are dedicated to providing items of clothing to those in need and jobs for those who have been displaced. 
As 2020 comes to a close, we pause in gratitude for our customers, employees, agents, and friends of NYCM Insurance. We’re fortunate to be able to stay connected with one another during this time of uncertainty and end the year looking forward to the next.  For a look at how NYCM employees coordinated giveback efforts this holiday season, follow the link below!
