As the Director of Human Resources, I often find myself in conversations with employees and brokers inquiring why they love working at Crane. The answer is always the same…“I love the people!”
It is the people that make Crane a great place to work. Going to work is a little bit easier when your co-workers are your friends. It’s even better, when your co-workers are like family!
Let’s face it, most professionals today spend just as much time or even more time at work than they do at home. It is difficult not to regard your co-workers as a family of sorts. I think having a “work family” is a universal experience.
I am not from the St. Louis area originally. When the holidays roll around and a co-worker invites me to spend Thanksgiving with them, it’s great to know that I have a “home away from home” and a “family away from my family.”
At Crane Agency our goal is to create an environment where a family atmosphere is encouraged. Our type of culture builds relationships and trust, which fosters originality, innovation, and teamwork!

Crane Agency firmly believes in supporting the communities where we do business and raise our families. Community involvement and charitable giving are top priorities at Crane. We are a proud family that rallies as a company during the holidays and throughout the year to participate in giving programs, such as Operation Food Search and our own Holiday Giving Tree, which benefit our neighbors in need. Crane and its employees have supported numerous other charitable causes such as Komen Race for the Cure, Special Olympics, United Way, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Our Little Haven, St. Patrick’s Center, Annie’s Hope and the Arts and Education Campaign to name a few.
At Crane Agency we work hard, but we like to have fun too. Our employees are like family (the fun kind) and we celebrate their contributions to our success as often as possible. Our culture is guided by the following core principles:
