JACKSONVILLE, FLA. — Congratulations to Employee of the Month for April 2021, Sarah Saffold!

Saffold is a Corporate Sales Representative at Brightway. In this role, she recommends solutions and provides product options to meet customer needs, sells Personal Lines insurance with a focus on Home Office existing accounts and assists walk-in customers who visit Brightway’s Home Office in Jacksonville.

During a virtual ceremony to recognize Saffold, Brightway’s Manager of Corporate Sales, Karma Jenks, said: “Sarah is so deserving of Employee of the Month! Sarah goes above and beyond to always try to help anyone and everyone, while still hitting her sales goals each month. I’ve received several kudos for her, from customers, lenders and other Brightway agents, letting me know that she went above and beyond what they expected in order to help them. ​

“She is a big help to her team, too. Sarah is extremely organized, and she has shared her organizational skills with the rest of the team. They’ve adopted them, which has helped them better manage their day and workload.

“Sarah is very reliable. If I ask her to do something, I know it will get done, and I know it will get done in a timely manner. She does an excellent job with prioritizing. She is always asking what else she can do to help. I was out on PTO for a couple days and had asked her to help manage our team inbox and a couple other things that needed to be kept up with daily. She handled it with no issue. Last, but not least, Sarah’s sense of humor, mixed with her creative mind, makes the workday a lot more fun. Sarah is amazing!”
