Since our founding, Arch employees have helped to weave the concept of generosity and compassion for others into the fabric of our culture.
How We Make a Difference
Our people give both their time and their resources to charities of all types, and the company promotes corporate citizenship through charitable donations and company-sponsored volunteer activities. Arch is committed to making a positive impact on the communities where our employees live and work.
Arch Matching Gift Program and Corporate Giving
Arch has a generous benefits program that helps employees amplify their community impact by providing the majority of our employees with a 1:1 match on their donations to recognized charitable organizations. In addition, through our corporate giving program, we develop relationships with local, national and international nonprofits and other community programs.
Arch employees champion many different opportunities to volunteer for charitable organizations.
- We offer employees up to two days of paid time off to volunteer with a nonprofit organization. We aim to help amplify the impact our employees can have in their communities through this policy.
- We use a technology-based portal that makes giving and volunteering convenient for employees. The portal safeguards employee and corporate donations by monitoring the eligibility of recipient organizations.
The company supports educational opportunities around the world based on financial need and academic achievement. Some examples:
Arch MI Data Dive Competition
This day-long event connects a local nonprofit with college students who have a knack for data science. In 2019, we partnered with the Greensboro Children’s Museum, where students had the opportunity to solve a real-world, data-related challenge by putting their data science and business analytics skills to the test.
St. John’s University Scholarships
St. John’s University honored our former Chairman, Constantine Iordanou, as the “2017 Insurance Leader of the Year.” In support, the company, our employees and our directors established a scholarship fund and provided an endowment in Mr. Iordanou’s name of close to $1,000,000. The scholarship fund is need based and was established for risk management students, with a preference for international students.
In Bermuda every summer, we select college students for paid internships during their summer breaks. Interns are assigned a mentor and participate in education sessions with the various company departments, such as modeling, underwriting and finance. In the U.S., we’ve designed a 10-week internship program that lets students in various disciplines, such as communications, alternative markets and data analytics, network with executives and participate in intern-specific events and programs.
Philippines Student Scholarships
Arch provides college scholarships for children of eligible Arch employees in the Philippines.
