National Payroll Week

Celebrate National Payroll Week!

National Payroll Week (NPW) coincides with the week of Labor Day and celebrates America’s employees and the payroll professionals who pay them. Together, through payroll withholding, we contribute, collect, report, and deposit 70% of the U.S. Treasury’s annual revenue, about $2.4 trillion per year. The American Payroll Association (APA), its local chapters, and others in the payroll industry use the week as a platform to spread awareness of the payroll withholding system, to host community services projects, and to educate others on how paychecks are calculated and how to get the most out of their pay.  Learn More!  

The annual “Getting Paid in America” survey enables the APA to gauge changing trends and attitudes towards payroll and time and attendance topics. Participants are automatically entered to win a free paycheck and a dream vacation!!!

Responder

Some of our associates are onsite in MN! Responder is a 35-foot commercial vehicle custom-designed as a mobile office that travels to areas throughout the Midwest where West Bend policyholders have been hit by such severe weather as heavy hail, windstorms, or tornadoes.

We're inspecting hail damaged vehicles for our policyholders in Minnesota affected by the recent storms.

Our Second Home

"The paneled door on the attractive new red brick building on the corner of Sixth Avenue and Poplar Street, new headquarters for the West Bend Mutual Fire Insurance Company's home office, will swing wide at three o'clock tomorrow afternoon," reported the West Bend Daily News in November of 1940.

Our second home featured walnut and leather furniture, paneled walls, and soft blue-green walls and carpeting. Pictures of our founding fathers, Samuel S. Barney, Patrick O'Meara, and Charles Leins were proudly displayed in the lobby. This 5,000 square foot building still stands in West Bend today.

As we celebrate our 125th anniversary, we love sharing old photos and stories of our history.  Here's to the next 125 years!

Associate Gardens

The associate gardens are well on their way to producing lots of homegrown goodness. This sure is one of the hidden gems as far as associates perks go!

Beautiful Scenery

When it's gorgeous outside and our associates need a break, a walk around our pond is the perfect thing to do.
