Serving a Vital and Growing Sector
Founded in 1993, The ALS Group provides independent fee-based insurance and risk-management advisory services to diverse clients ranging from middle-market regional organizations to large national accounts. More than Consultants, we act as our clients’ “outsourced risk manager” to help them embrace a holistic and “three-dimensional” approach to managing risk—an approach that far transcends “reducing insurance costs.”
Given the heightened awareness of risk and increased scrutiny of corporate governance, a renewed focus on enterprise risk management, and new legislation aimed at controlling risk, the opportunities for our innovative practice model abound. Indeed, over the last ten years, The ALS Group has enjoyed steady double-digit growth, fueling our need for outstanding individuals to join our team and embrace our mission to help our clients succeed.
A Diverse Practice Base
While our target market typically focuses on organizations with EBITDA between $20 and $100 million, our client base spans numerous industries, including retail, real estate, construction, manufacturing, and energy to name but a few.
Our services span distinct practice verticals, including:
What We Value in an ALS Group Candidate
The ALS Group works in a fast-paced environment where excellent communication skills and superior client service are paramount. To that end, we seek candidates with high energy, service-oriented approach who are well versed in all facets of risk management and insurance advisory—and who can demonstrate substantial professional and technical experience in a progressively challenging environment. Professional designations for ARM, CPCU, CRIS, or related fields are preferred.
Our associates actively support the development and execution of our clients’ strategic plans for risk management. To successfully support our clients, associates must demonstrate the drive and ability to:
The ALS Group is committed to help you succeed by supporting both your personal and professional development. While you will be expected to continually expand your knowledge base and pursue professional studies that will help you become a better advisor, we will support you through these activities, and will pay for Firm-sanctioned professional studies during your tenure with us.
What We Expect of Our Team
The ALS Group is committed to “best practice standard” operations—defined as those activities which align with consistently and effectively providing superior client service along with cost effectiveness to our Firm, able to be repeatedly delivered to a broad base of clients in a profitable manner.
Our Mission Statement, Values, Workplace Ideals, and Corporate Principles are tenets that we live by and guide the Firm’s operation. We expect every one of our associates to subscribe to these principles to effectively grow and prosper with the firm. We also believe that from time to time circumstances will challenge the firm and its associates to stick by these principles; therefore, we are proud to maintain an environment wherein any associate can raise a question to the CEO if they ever feel the Firm is not holding true to its principles.
We are an entrepreneurial organization that is committed to returning an above average return on equity for our stakeholders. We will encourage and challenge our associates to always use the Firm’s resources wisely. Our time is our inventory, and we expect a fair return on investment. Our Associates are required to record billable time daily through our practice-management system while asking themselves “Would you pay you?” and “What value did we deliver for the money?” if you were a client and received the invoice. We expect all our associates to put in the time necessary to accomplish the work that our clients require in an efficient manner. As a results-driven office, we will not micromanage your time. We firmly believe in the adage “results not excuses” and accountability is critical for any Associate.
We are a firm that embraces technology, as we believe it is a vital component of our business model. You will be expected to have above-average skills with MS Word and Excel and will be challenged to learn our proprietary systems, believe in their use, and suggest ways of improving and enhancing them. Project management, time/activity reporting, data management systems, and a suite of risk management and insurance systems yield efficiency and improve the utilization rate that we are able to achieve as a Firm. Our cutting-edge technology gives us a competitive advantage over other consulting models in that it provides us with the ability to deliver client service that exceeds expectations, at a competitively priced and profitable level. We employ an industry-specific proprietary risk-management system that supports our Associates and ensures that our rigid standards of best practice, performance, and client delivery are consistently applied.
Our Entrepreneurial Style
Our clients expect results, and we deliver. Too many consulting firms suffer from “paralysis by analysis.” Not us. We allow—and expect—our associates to make decisions and implement solutions. We value critical-thinking and expect you to be a problem solver who takes the lead in identifying and implementing solutions. We move fast, and we encourage our Associates to be innovative and solution-minded. We want them to listen to our clients, hear the challenges they face, devise a solution, and act on it. In our view, a right decision is best, a wrong decision is a learning experience, and no decision is unacceptable.
We want you to achieve successes every day with us. We boast an open-floor environment that contributes to our collaborative culture. While our office is business casual, we are always ready to receive clients or be called into a meeting.
