Cobbs Allen Named as "Best Practices Agency"

Posted by Grantland Rice, III on November 6, 2015

IIABA.jpgCobbs Allen was once again recognized as a “Best Practices Agency” this past year. Since 1993, the Best Practices Study has been conducted for agencies around the country to assist agency owners in understanding how their business performs when measured against the top performing agencies. Less than twenty percent of the participating agencies in the study qualified for the honor of being recognized as a top performing agency. Data collected and analyzed includes income statement analysis, expense distribution, top line growth, bottom line profitability, production and service staff productivity, IT structure and expense ratio, new investment in people and services, carrier representation and much more. Cobbs Allen uses the data to help us continue to increase service levels for our clients. Cobbs Allen is proud to have received this honor and will continue to seek for ways to improve and deliver the highest level of service possible.

If you are anything like me, you probably have a love/hate (mainly hate) relationship with daylight saving time. I still scratch my head when someone refers to gaining or losing an hour. We “fall back,” yet “gain” an hour—it just doesn’t make sense. Add daylight saving time to the list of things I don’t understand right between quantum physics and fantasy football. Those of us who find it hard to wrap our head around the practice are not alone. According to Rasmussen Reports, 43 percent of Americans do not believe that pushing the clock forward is practical. 11 percent incorrectly answered whether they were supposed to “spring forward” or “fall back,” while 8 percent did not know what it meant at all. Believe it or not, daylight saving time has actually created a bit of controversy in the last century. Below are a few interesting facts about daylight saving time:

Halloween is right around the corner. You can see it in the fall leaves, smell it in the chimney smoke filling the air (and fired-up grills, because, well, it’s football season), and you can feel the chilly air underneath your sweater. Porches are lit and decorated with pumpkins carved with spooky faces and creepy cobwebs. Halloween is something children (and adults) look forward to year-around, but safety precautions should  be taken when joining in on the fun.
