Thanks for masking.

2020 was certainly a challenging year for all of us – COVID changed our “normal” way of life almost instantaneously. For the first time ever, Diversified transitioned its agents and employees to work remotely from home. During this time, a lot of businesses suffered or closed – but for Diversified, it was the opposite: Employees kept their jobs, and our organization actually grew in size. From March to October alone, we contracted 30+ new agents and employees from all over the country to join The Diversified Family and literally hundreds through our downline relationships.  Our office has since re-opened its doors while our team members have the flexibility to continue working remotely for their safety. Open Zoom and look at all of the new names and faces we have here today!

We couldn’t have done it without our growing partnership with the entire Centene Corporation, including WellCare, Allwell, HealthNet and Fidelis!  Not to mention, One Life America and Columbian Financial Group.

Mask and you shall receive!

The awards this year are given to members of our organization who, even amidst a global pandemic, showed exceptional performance in 2020. Congratulations to all the recipients across all departments who contributed greatly to Diversified’s ongoing success!

Tonight’s Entertainment: The Masked Singers

Don’t mask, don’t tell – when attending our live-stream Maskerade Ball, our hope that your virtual experience will be easy, interactive and entertaining. We have a varied program of professional entertainment for our masked guests. Stay tuned for a series of original videos and skits from yours truly, The Rose Boys!

One mask time.

We appreciate all of you taking the time out of your Sunday evening to join us for this virtual celebration. The Awards Ceremony is something incredibly unique and special to our organization, and it saddens us to not be with you all in person this year – but your health and safety will always take priority. The Diversified Family prays for anyone who has lost a friend or family member to COVID.

We have high hopes for 2022 as things are looking up – our country is beginning to heal, and life will regain a sense of normalcy as more time passes. Diversified will continue to grow bigger and stronger in the meantime!

Mask but not least:

You masked for it! (Timeline of events)

Appointment Setters

Many people have a hand in the appointment booking process, but we just want to take a moment to highlight this special group of people.  Every day, they spend hours on the phone, doing what they do best to make sure Diversified excels. 

​In 2020, Diversified’s appointment setters booked a whopping total of 13,191 appointments.  These appointments led to thousands of submitted applications.  Our appointment setters make up half of the staff in this office; and we are thankful to call each and every one of them family.

If you know someone who is Flexible, Adaptable and Trainable that is looking to better their career, feel free to share this opportunity with them.

Sales Achievement

This award recognizes those individuals who have partnered with Diversified in   making a positive impact as employees, clients or associates.  This award rewards those agents who have not yet qualified for our Leader or President’s Clubs, but have demonstrated that they are part of the Diversified Sales Team.  We look forward to their growth in the future.

Leaders Club Award

This club was established to recognize those agents who have issued and paid a minimum of $100,000 of Final Expense premium in one year, and/or those that have submitted a minimum of 150 Health Applications.

The President’s Club Award

This honor was established in 1999.  One qualifies for this club by placing a minimum of $125,000 of premium and/or issuing 250 health applications in one year. The qualifier receives a plaque for each year he or she qualifies.  In the second year, they receive a ring and a diamond is added to the ring every year that he or she qualifies.  Here at Diversified, this is not just an award.  It is a status.  An agent who is part of the President’s Club has proven that he or she is dedicated to their career.
