The North Carolina Mutual Life Insurance Company
Beyond the brick and mortar, beyond the flourishing ledger, the people who served the Mutual have always been the company’s lifeblood. No matter the position, whether clerk, agent, actuary, accountant, manager, or executive, Mutual’s success and failure rested on the employees that dedicated their lives to the field. The company gave back to their employees in a number of ways as well, with an onsite medical clinic for staff and their families, development classes and seminars promoting professional growth, and honours and awards given to exemplary staff. When countless doors of employment were shut because of race, creed, or gender, throughout the 20th century, Mutual welcomed thousands of men and women in.
