At Utica National, we believe a diverse and inclusive culture is essential to fostering the best kind of work environment – and because it’s just the right thing to do.

We are committed to reflecting our promise of Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging in all we do, including recruitment, learning and education, employee relations, community involvement, and managing our hybrid (on-site and remote) work environments.


Shanay-LearyUtica National is committed to continuous improvement. Leadership here encourages all employees at every level to make suggestions that can help in this mission. I regularly collaborate cross functionally with other departments to solve difficult problems. The various levels of experience, specialty knowledge and overall willingness to help that I’ve encountered really makes the difference. Everyone I work with understands that we are all working toward the same goal and our differences make us more successful.

I used to be an underwriter and just became a supervisor about two years ago. I enjoy training people knowing we’re all working toward a singular goal. At the end of the day, Utica National is a great place to work. I feel that I am valued and that my input is well-received. Working for a smaller carrier, you have a more direct line to senior leadership, and it’s great to know that I can reach out to them.”
