Elephant Insurance announced last week that they will be the first insurer to offer a discounted rate to customers working from home.

Policyholders and spouses working from home and driving less are eligible to receive the new discount, depending on the number of days driven to work and the customer’s occupation. To apply, customers can fill out an online quote form or speak directly with an agent. Elephant’s Work from Home Discount does not require any tracking device to be used by the customer.

“We understand customers are seeking flexible ways to manage their car insurance,” said Alberto Schiavon, Elephant CEO. “This discount was created to acknowledge the change that has occurred to many jobs today. If you are currently working from home and driving less, we want to help you save even more on your car insurance.”

Discount eligibility began August 19, 2020 in Illinois, Maryland, Ohio, Texas and Virginia. Current customers will have it available for policy renewals starting in these states October 19, 2020. The Work from Home discount will be available in Indiana and Tennessee on October 14, 2020.

David Stevens, CEO and co-founder of Elephant Insurance’s parent company, Admiral Group, announced yesterday he will give a personal gift of around $13 million to over 11,000 employees ahead of his retirement.

As a thank you to all the staff at Admiral and Elephant Insurance who have made his 29 years with the company so special, David Stevens and his wife, Heather will give £1,000 to every full-time member of staff and £500 to all other staff. For employees in the United States, this equates to around $1,300 for full-time employees and $650 for part-time employees.

“Saying thank you to all the Admiral staff in this way is the right thing to do, and I’m so proud and fortunate to have worked with such a special group of people,” said David Stevens, CEO and co-found of Admiral. “Their hard work and dedication has allowed Admiral to grow from a start-up with one brand, zero customers and 57 members of staff, to a FTSE 100 company worth around £8 billion with multiple brands, millions of customers and over 11,000 staff worldwide. Thank you from myself and my wife to everyone at Admiral.”

All Admiral staff, whether they work in Richmond or Rome, Newport or Delhi and everywhere in-between, will benefit from the gift.

“Today and every day, we are so appreciative to work for a company under the Admiral umbrella,” said Alberto Schiavon, CEO of Elephant Insurance. “David Stevens’ generosity will impact all of Elephant’s more than 630 employees, most of whom are here in Richmond. We wish him well in this new stage of life and look forward to welcoming Admiral’s new CEO, Milena Mondini de Focatiis.”

Urban Farmhouse has shuttered its location at 3015 Norfolk St., capping off an almost six-year stint in the neighborhood. The homegrown brand is now down to two locations, one in Shockoe Slip and the other in Midlothian.

The chain, which had six shops in 2016, eliminated the 4,000-square-foot Scott’s Addition location as it seeks to come out on the other side of the coronavirus pandemic, owner Kathleen Richardson said.
