What We Do
Ollis/Akers/Arney is a leading insurance and business advisory firm serving Southwest Missouri communities for over 130 years. We bring an innovative approach and comprehensive, real world solutions to organizations and work to understand our client’s needs. And we make it easy!
We value our team, and because of them, we excel. We focus on finding the balance between work and family. We are successful because employee owners understand they are able to give their best every day at work because of our dedication to the time they have with family.
We encourage continuing education and cover expenses related to the development of industry specific skills and knowledge. With world-class trainers in house, we also provide a consistent foundation for staff on topics like decision making, risk taking, continuous learning, inspiring others, communication, building successful teams and more.
Our philosophy is different because our company has been part of the community since 1885. We have all benefited from the growth of the region, and we encourage our team to get involved and give back to something they are passionate about. This has a direct impact on personal growth, and on the success of the communities we call home.
Ollis/Akers/Arney is 100% employee owned and is a Certified EO company. From the extensive benefits package, generous compensation programs, community involvement and career progression planning to the onsite fitness center and other wellness initiatives, it is easy to see why we experience a 90% employee retention rate.
What matters in the lives of our employees is what matters most to us. From the wide range of benefits offered to provide a stable network to the financial components designed to ensure a secure future for employee-owners and their families, we have our finger on the pulse of what it takes to attract and retain top talent.
