Columbus, Ohio-based Encova Insurance is moving forward with its summer internship program in Columbus, Ohio, and Charleston, West Virginia, with virtual training and onboarding of 22 interns.
Currently, about 90% of Encova’s associates are working from home. At least to begin their internship, the interns will also work from home. The company continues to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and will incorporate the interns into the return-to-work plan for their offices.
According to Natalie Payne, a talent acquisition specialist at Encova, several interns were hired after their internship at another company was canceled.
The interns represent 10 different departments, including Information Technology, Accounting, Safety and Loss, Underwriting and Analytics. They are primarily college juniors and seniors, with 13 different universities represented.
Encova still plans to offer the interns a volunteer opportunity to serve their local community. Different options are being considered to ensure safety, but in past years, interns have volunteered with organizations such as Ronald McDonald House and LifeCare Alliance.
A super-regional mutual insurance carrier, Encova has more than 1,200 associates writing in 28 states and the District of Columbia, premiums in excess of $1 billion, a surplus in excess of $1.65 billion and assets in excess of $4.3 billion.
The group markets insurance products and services through more than 2,000 independent agencies in the Midwest, Northeast and South.
