About Caroline Conner

Respected. Thoughtful. Strong. Meet British Columbia native Caroline Conner, a continual pioneer in her field, with a proven track record for positive impact and change. Although Caroline is well known for her role in creating, developing, and maintaining the award-winning image of Homeowners Financial Group (HFG) through Human Resources and Marketing leadership, she has transitioned to a more focused role centered around Culture and Community Giving by working alongside the Executive and Senior Leadership team.

In her usual neoteric approach, she strives to create experiences intended for people to have favorable, desired, and memorable outcomes as it relates to the employee experience. She believes it is more important than ever for companies to retain employees in this ever-changing environment.

Caroline has spearheaded over 100 community awards and accolades in offices across the U.S. Since joining HFG over 15 years ago, she has also overseen more than half a million dollars donated to local charities throughout the country. In confluence, she also founded the Culture Committee, which originated with 20 members, and has now grown to 100+ members nationwide.

Giving back to the community and Culture are two deep-seated passions. Caroline has proven experience in applying policies and practices that led to HFG winning numerous best-place-to-work accolades, including recognition in Fortune and Inc. magazines. Her professional passions have produced a domino effect with the implementation of many commendatory methods.
