Teammates must trust each other, must be committed to the success of the team, and must be willing to be held accountable. Team first, team last, team only.
“A single arrow is easily broken, but not ten together.”
– Japanese proverb
Giving trust allows others to earn it. Trust your teammates. Trust our customers. Trust yourself. Having an attitude of trust frees us from worry and cynicism and allows us to be the best versions of ourselves.
“If you don’t trust the people, you make them untrustworthy.”
Teammates must be accountable to each other, but first that means being accountable to yourself. Accountability means giving your best effort every day, communicating directly and reflecting honestly on our successes and failures. Leaders must own their results.
“You never get more from life than who you are.”
– Robin Sharma
We believe in the power of authenticity. Our diversity can create strength only if we are each true to ourselves and each other. Integrity means we are all bound together by a single thread.
“This above all: to thine own self be true.”
– William Shakespeare
Prepare – but don’t over plan – and then act. Bias to action means we overcome the inertia of the planning process, resist a culture of meetings and paralysis by analysis, and that we move forward today.
“The best time to plant a tree is forty years ago. The second-best time is today.”
– Indian proverb
There is no substitute for grit. The determination to succeed, and the resolve to keep going no matter the setbacks or obstacles, is what separates successful teams from losing teams. We either win or we learn. Either way, we keep moving forward.
“Keep moving forward. Never quit. You’ll be fine.”
– Robert O’Neill

St. Petersburg is the 5th largest city in the 3rd largest state, with vibrant, forward-thinking, modern residents. It has the charm of a welcoming small town, and an exciting vision for the future.
Built over 100 years ago, St. Pete is a remarkably “livable” city with amazing waterfront neighborhoods and is compatible with a wide range of lifestyles. Residents include a mix of young professionals and students enjoying a contemporary, active way of life.
At UPC Insurance, our people define who we are and truly make us flourish. And we are proud to give them a new place to shine and serve our agents and policyholders: new state-of-the-art headquarters with plenty of room to grow.
