Branch is a tech-forward insurance company that offers high quality home and auto insurance for affordable prices. They make bundling insurance easy and affordable with instant-pricing and also offers coverage options for renter’s, motorcycle, boat, and ATV insurance. Founded in 2017 and headquartered in Columbus, Branch took root in Ohio and now is licensed and offering services to 25 states across the country with plans to expand to even more states in the future.
As Branch extends its services beyond Ohio, the company needed to expand its business capabilities for employee and talent recruitment to match the increased demand for its services. JobsOhio’s Talent Acquisition Services (TAS) helped Branch scale its business for success with marketing, training, and onboarding for new and potential employees.
With the support of JobsOhio, Branch has launched a recruitment campaign with a customized job board and an insurance pathway program that has trained and licensed 50 candidates. The campaign also included leadership training for 45 potential leaders in the field and an onboarding program with a consultant to help with Applicant Tracking System selection and implementation.
With Ohio’s history and leadership in insurance and financial services, the state continues to be a hub for insurtech companies to succeed. Branch’s expansion of services and staff is a result of massive success in Ohio. Before Branch opened its headquarters in Columbus in 2017, they completed a nationwide search and ultimately chose Ohio due to the access in talent and convenient access to nationally ranked colleges and universities. They also cited the low cost of living with a high quality of life that Ohio offers.
