Best Company
to work for

Workers at CFC, a specialist insurance provider and a pioneer in emerging risk, are encouraged to seek advice and help from experienced colleagues as part of its mentoring scheme.

The company is keen to promote the programme, whereby individuals can seek guidance and support from senior employees, who share their knowledge, wisdom and experience in a way that is supportive and developmental.

At CFC proprietary technology is used to deliver high-quality products to market faster than the competition while making it easier for brokers to do business.

The company is built on four core principles: passion and perseverance; respect and humility; intensity; and one team.

The core principles are embedded throughout the business – they are clearly shown on the company's HR platform and on all job descriptions, for internal and external use, and performance-review documents. Core values are also used as a metric for performance reviews, with a rating given for performance against objectives/targets and an additional one for core values. This is rated by the line manager and also reflected on by the employee.

CFC ensures employees are rewarded for their efforts throughout the year. Employees are treated to a weekend abroad. Everyone is invited and almost everyone attends. It is important for CFC that its staff feel like a family and the company wants employees to work there because they want to, not because they have to.
