EMC distributes products solely through the independent agency system and operates under the philosophy that its partnership with independent agents brings a superior level of personalized service to the insurance process.

Technology makes it easy for EMC team members to find workplace solutions that are best for them. Alternative work arrangements provide flexibility while simultaneously helping team members feel engaged and empowered, no matter where they are.
To encourage community involvement, EMC team members are given time off to volunteer each year. In 2017, corporate office and branch team members contributed thousands of hours to initiatives such as Habitat for Humanity, food pantries and food banks, and school supply drives.
