Fifty years of history.
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…..
Oh, sorry that’s not right. Different story, let’s start over!
A long time ago, way back in 1961, when cell phones and personal computers were strictly from the world of science fiction,
and gas only cost $0.25 a gallon, the Assurance Agency was born. A fledgling operation with only three employees, Assurance
began its journey by providing highly personalized insurance services to local businesses.
Today we are experts in the toughest parts of the market, specializing in providing property and casualty insurance solutions
and designing and administering employee benefit programs for individuals and businesses across the country. Creative and
innovative, Assurance contracts with over 300 top insurance carriers to provide the widest breadth of insurance solutions
available to our clientele. And, with a distinctive corporate culture that encourages fun and camaraderie to boot, we take pride
in the fact that Assurance has grown into one of the largest independent insurance brokerages in the United States.

It started with our own staffing company…
Way back in 1993, we were where many of you are today...struggling to stand out from
dozens of competitors in our market...fighting margin pressures...and pushing our sales
team for better results.
We were tired of fighting these battles every day, and hearing the same excuses: “We’re not hiring,”“We’re happy with our
current vendor,” and our personal favorite, “We don’t use staffing firms.”
Then we discovered a better process...a process that combined marketing and sales in a way that nurtured relationships,
showed people the real value of our services, and allowed us to get more appointments with less effort. A process that enabled
us to double in size in just three years!
Then our “a-ha” moment hit: we could share our process with other companies (as long as they didn’t compete with us!). And
that’s when we started Haley Marketing.
Since then, we have helped hundreds of staffing and search firms with their marketing needs. We’ve expanded our services into
email marketing, website design, print and online marketing. And we’ve grown our team.
Today, Haley Marketing is the largest marketing firm dedicated to servicing the staffing and recruiting industry. And we look
forward to helping you stand out. Stay top-of-mind. And sell more!
