BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

EARLY Aspirations: "When I was little I thought I wanted to be a jockey because I loved horses. As I got older and taller and, more importantly, wiser, I knew I wanted a job that would make a difference and where I could use my love of solving problems. I stumbled on Westfield Insurance during that time when a lot of us decided to work for a few years, save some money and go back to school. It is now 21 years later with Westfield and I feel as though I have had many careers. It has been an ongoing, post-graduate development program."
