We have amazing employees at California Casualty. The Employee Spotlight is a new series aiming to highlight those talented individuals that make up our successful company culture and community. From human resource recruiters and learning and development trainers to claims adjusters, marketers, customer support specialists, partner relations, sales representatives, and beyond; each week, we’ll highlight a new team member, so you can get to know us better and see how our employees make us who we are as a company.
This edition of the Employee Spotlight will feature our Talent Aquisition Specialist, Kelly DeSousa.
Kelly has been with us for 3 years now and is based in our Colorado Springs office.
Let’s get to learn about Kelly!
Where are you from?
Originally Massachusetts, but I’ve been in Colorado for 27 years now and I’m absolutely loving it.
What made you want to work in Human Resources at California Casualty?
The people, the company and the groups we serve (police officers, firefighters, teachers, and nurses). I have a friend who works here and she would talk about how great of a company California Casualty is, and I thought I have to work there, and now here I am!
What is your favorite part about your job?
My work family, in the human resources department, is the best! I work with people that I truly care about and I know they care about me. We all work so well together and have since day one. They make work fun.
What are your favorite activities to do outside of the office?
Anything with adventure and travel. Hiking, biking, etc.
Anything else you would like the audience to know about you?
I have a teacup Chihuahua “Benny” that loves to bike and hike with me.
I went skydiving last year.
A really fun fact about me is I love to travel, so much so that I did a mystery vacation where I had no idea where I was going until I got to the airport and had a blast!
