The award recognizes the agency that best exemplifies Keystone’s mission: “Independence works better together.” Criteria include demonstrating a commitment to grow through leadership mentoring, engaging in technology advancements, employing best practices to improve operations and developing new income streams to strengthen their business diversity.

Hollister explained the extensive work that led the agency to winning the national award and the real reason his agency is part of Keystone.

“We’ve spent a lot of time on staffing,” he said. “Our ultimate goal is to have all staff understand they are a critical part of the ‘machine’ and that their actions have positive and negative consequences. But it is our fellow Keystone partners that are the best resource. We’ve made a lot of close friends and generated the ability to talk about ideas, struggles, coverage issues and management/staffing issues. Within the partnership, we can be honest if we’re struggling with something, and you don’t often get to do that in business anywhere else.”
