Funeral Directors Life Earns Great Place to Work Certification™

ABILENE, TX — Funeral Directors Life has once again been certified as a “Great Place to Work,” earning certification for July 2021-July 2022. Great Place to Work® is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience, and the leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue and increased innovation.

“We are honored to be named as a ‘Great Place to Work’ again,” said Kris Seale, President and CEO of Funeral Directors Life. “Year in and year out, we take great pride in this achievement and continue to improve the culture we’ve built. Just this past year, we’ve adopted a new mantra: ‘LEO’ or ‘Love Each Other,’ a phrase made popular by Indiana University’s head football coach Tom Allen. Our people certainly care for one another and make Funeral Directors Life a great place to work.”

To acquire recertification, Funeral Directors Life’s employees completed an anonymous survey in which they ranked the workplace culture, leadership, benefits, and other factors within the company. Feedback from the survey, in addition to Great Place to Work’s extensive data-driven methodology, reported that the majority of employees said Funeral Directors Life was a Great Place to Work.

“Great Place to Work Certification™ isn’t something that comes easily – it takes ongoing dedication to the employee experience,” said Sarah Lewis-Kulin, Vice President of Global Recognition at Great Place to Work. “It’s the only official recognition determined by employees’ real-time reports of their company culture. Earning this designation means that Funeral Directors Life is one of the best companies to work for in the country.”

“Guests who visit our home office often want to know why our employees are so happy and excited to come to work,” added Seale. “We all share a common purpose and believe in going above and beyond to serve others, treating everyone with respect, and remembering that we’re all on the same team and want to see each other succeed.”
