History[edit] In 1925, Sears
Sears
held a national contest to decide the name of a new brand of car tires. After over two million name submissions, "Allstate" was chosen. The trademark was adopted the next year. The tires' success in the catalog and retail stores prompted Sears Chairman General Robert E. Wood
Robert E. Wood
to praise the Allstate
Allstate
tire's contribution to Sears' retail store success.[1] The idea for Allstate
Allstate
Insurance
Insurance
Company came during a bridge game on a commuter train in 1930, when insurance broker Carl L. Odell proposed to Wood, his neighbor, the idea of selling auto insurance by direct mail. The idea appealed to Wood, and he passed the proposal to the Sears
Sears
board of directors, which approved it. Allstate
Allstate
Insurance Company, named after Sears’ tire brand, went into business on April 17, 1931, offering auto insurance by direct mail and through the Sears catalog.[8] This was in line with one of the objectives of a company to sell automobile insurance in the same manner as Sears
Sears
sold its merchandise.[9] Lessing J. Rosenwald was Allstate's first board chairman, and Odell was named vice president and secretary.[10] In 1933, at the Century of Progress World’s Fair in Chicago, Allstate’s Richard E. Roskam sold insurance at a booth in the Sears pavilion. In 1934, Allstate
Allstate
opened its first permanent sales office in a Chicago Sears
Sears
store.[11] In 1941, only about a quarter of US drivers had auto liability insurance. This led to the state of New York passing a law which established the financial responsibility of drivers for damage or injuries resulting from auto mishaps. That law inspired legislation in other states, and by the mid-1950s nearly every state had some sort of financial responsibility law on its books.[8] In 1949 the Allstate
Allstate
Headquarters Building was completed at 3245 W. Arthington Street in Chicago.[12] The mid-rise building is currently vacant (as of 2013) and in danger of demolition. The building is noted for its early post-war mid-rise construction. This location was vacated when the company relocated in the post-war years. The company’s "You're in Good Hands with Allstate" slogan was created in 1950 by Allstate’s general sales manager Davis W. Ellis. At the end of the decade, it was used in the company's first network television advertising campaign, which featured actor Ed Reimers.[10] Allstate
Allstate
added products throughout the 1950s, including fire insurance in 1954 and homeowners and life insurance in 1957. Allstate
Allstate
began selling insurance to Canadians in 1953. Allstate
Allstate
Insurance
Insurance
Company of Canada
Canada
was incorporated in 1964.[8] (In 1952 and 1953, Sears
Sears
also sold an automobile called Allstate.) In 1967, the company's home office was moved from Skokie to Northbrook, Illinois. Allstate
Allstate
continued to sell additional types of insurance to customers throughout the decade, including worker's compensation insurance in 1964, surety bonds in 1966, inland-marine coverage in 1967 and a business package policy in 1969.[10] The brand itself expanded in the 1950s and 1960s and could be found on a variety of products like fire extinguishers and motor scooters. In 1952, an Allstate
Allstate
car was produced, but it was a flop; it was pulled from stores by 1953. The Allstate
Allstate
brand was eventually limited to insurance, tires, and car batteries by the late 1960s before becoming insurance-only in the mid-1970s.[1] In 1991, the company went public[4] before becoming completely independent in 1995.[1] In 1984, Neighborhood Office Agent program was introduced to make agents more accessible to customers.[citation needed] In 1985, Allstate
Allstate
began to move agents out of Sears
Sears
stores and locate agents in neighborhood offices. In June 1993, 19.8% of Allstate
Allstate
became public through a stock offering. Allstate
Allstate
became completely independent in June 1995, when Sears
Sears
spun off the remaining 80% stake in the company, distributing 350.5 million shares of Allstate
Allstate
stock to its stockholders.[8] In 1993, Allstate
Allstate
went public when Sears
Sears
sold 19.8% of the company.[13] At the time, it was the largest IPO to date. In 1996, their website www.allstate.com was launched.[citation needed] In 1999, Allstate
Allstate
unveiled a new business model that created a single contract for exclusive, independent agents selling Allstate
Allstate
insurance. It also created a network of call centers.[citation needed] In 1999, Allstate
Allstate
purchased the personal lines division of CNA Financial[14] and subsequently renamed it to Encompass Insurance Company which is written by independent insurance agents, as opposed to the direct writing that constitutes the core part of its business.[15] In 2003, actor Dennis Haysbert
Dennis Haysbert
became Allstate’s spokesman, using the tagline "That’s Allstate’s stand."[16] In 2010, actor Dean Winters
Dean Winters
became a part of Allstate’s campaign "Mayhem" “personifying the pitfalls, like collisions and storm damage, that can befall drivers”. In 2012 Allstate Solutions Private Limited
Allstate Solutions Private Limited
(also called Allstate India) was inaugurated in Bangalore which is a technology and operations centre to provides software development and business process outsourcing services to its US parent.[17] Allstate's Bangalore operation is focused on the areas of business intelligence, analytics, testing and mobility.

Advertising[edit] "Good hands"[edit] Allstate's slogan "You're in good hands" was created in the 1950s by Allstate
Allstate
Insurance
Insurance
Company's sales executive, Davis W. Ellis based on a similar phrase he used to reassure his wife about a doctor caring for their child. It has been the slogan ever since 1950. Allstate
Allstate
also referred to themselves as the Good Hands People. In the 1960s and 1970s, TV, print and radio advertising featured Allstate’s spokesman, Ed Reimers. Reimers was often shown making the cupped-hand gesture. For 22 years, he remained the spokesman.[19] A study in 2000 by Northwestern University's Medill Graduate Department of Integrated Marketing Communications found that the Allstate
Allstate
slogan "You're in good hands" ranked as the most recognizable in America.[20] "Allstate’s stand"[edit] Beginning in 2003, as policy growth slowed, Allstate’s television commercials used spokesman Dennis Haysbert. The ads were intended to carry the message that Allstate's service was superior to that from low-cost providers Geico and Progressive.[21] Haysbert appeared in more than 250 commercials between 2003 and 2016. Mayhem[edit] Beginning in 2010, Allstate
Allstate
used Dean Winters
Dean Winters
as "Mayhem", mean to personify the hazards drivers face. The ads conclude with Haysbert asking "Are You In Good Hands?"[22] Social media[edit] In January 2011, Allstate
Allstate
released The Lines,[23] a multi-episode TV drama web series starring actors Teresa Cesario, Kyle Sandgate-Blix, Jackson Schultz, Bridgette Pechman, Chase Maser, and Corey Doyle cast as High-School seniors. The series, filmed in the style of a television drama, depicts the cast in common situations facing teens with respect to driving ( Texting while driving
Texting while driving
in particular). The series appears aimed at promoting interest and support in favor of responsible teen driving and road-safety in general. The Lines spans a total of 8 episodes, each 6–8 minutes in length. Allstate
Allstate
and other large corporations are attracted to the rapid growth of social media for use in their advertising campaigns. Organization[edit] Allstate

Allstate
has a Sustainability Leadership Team composed of officers and senior staff from all areas of the company. The team focuses on sustainability efforts from a company-wide perspective — including environmental initiatives that embed “green” programs and processes throughout their operations.[31] Criticism[edit] In July 2008, the American Association for Justice ranked Allstate
Allstate
No. 1 among nation's worst insurers. This ranking was given because: “While Allstate
Allstate
publicly touts its ‘good hands’ approach, it has instead privately instructed its agents to employ a ‘boxing gloves’ strategy against its policyholders,” said American Association for Justice CEO Jon Haber. They've since revamped their approach.[32] Allstate
Allstate
criticized the report, with a spokesman noting that "The personal injury lawyers behind this report provide no support for their statements other than decade old recycled allegations that have been shown to be without merit in courts of law." [33] In 2009 Allstate
Allstate
successfully fought to obtain Federal government TARP fund eligibility only to decline it once they obtained eligibility.[34] Auto insurance
Auto insurance
claims[edit] An investigative report in February 2007 by CNN
CNN
found that major car insurance companies, like Allstate, are increasingly fighting auto insurance claims from those who incurred injuries by their insured members.[35] Allstate
Allstate
currently commands 18% of the auto insurance market in the United States.[36] Homeowners claims[edit] The PBS television program Now,[37] in conjunction with Bloomberg Markets magazine, did an exposé regarding Allstate
Allstate
and other major insurers' homeowners insurance policies. Catastrophe exposure management[edit] Allstate
Allstate
has stated intentions of reducing its exposure in hurricane-prone Florida. In November 2006, Allstate
Allstate
did not renew 120,000 policies that were expiring at that time. Governor Charlie Crist and the Florida
Florida
Cabinet passed a 90-day emergency order to temporarily prevent insurance companies from nonrenewing policies.[38] On February 20, 2007, Florida
Florida
Insurance
Insurance
Commissioner Kevin McCarty clarified the order, stating that insurance companies can nonrenew policies if they satisfy certain conditions, including filing new, lower rates with the state and give customers 100 days’ notice.[39] From Good Hands to Boxing Gloves[edit] This is the title of a book written by David Berardinelli, JD;, Michael Freeman, PhD, DC, MPH; and Aaron DeShaw, DC, JD with a foreword by Eugene R. Anderson.[40] The book relates profit-boosting strategies that consulting firm McKinsey & Company presented to Allstate
Allstate
to maximize profits and diminish the amount of money sent to clients who put in a claim. McKinsey specializes in redesigning product delivery systems for Fortune 100 companies (including controversial clients such as Enron) to maximize profits. McKinsey’s recommendation to Allstate, according to Berardinelli, was to low-ball claims so that desperate customers in dire straits would be more likely to accept a settlement offer while Allstate
Allstate
continued to make a profit and collect interest on the insurance payment. Allstate
Allstate
would offer its "good hands" in the way of a low-ball claim and, if the customer did not accept, to get out "boxing gloves." [41] The book was reviewed by Business
Business
Week magazine.[42] According to that article, Allstate
Allstate
responded to Berardinelli's allegations by claiming that Berardinelli's allegations were "unfounded and unproven." Rather than trying to cheat customers, the company stated that its major goal was to benefit policyholders by identifying "exaggerated and fraudulent claims" and that its "processes are absolutely sound . . . to investigate, evaluate, and promptly resolve each claim fairly, based on the merits."[42] Court decisions on the issues debated by Berardinelli and Allstate have gone both ways. According to the Business
Business
Week article, as of 2006, "Courts and regulators in a number of states, including New York, Pennsylvania, and Washington, have forced Allstate
Allstate
to halt or change its practice of handing out a controversial 'Do I Need an Attorney?' form to people involved in accidents." On the other hand, the article also states that "Although plaintiffs have had piecemeal success in bad-faith cases against Allstate, the insurer points to seven court rulings that have rejected attacks on CCPR. Last December a Montana state court noted that while CCPR practices may be illegal 'if misapplied in a particular case, they nevertheless are neutral with no manifestly illegal purpose.'" While many of the cost-reduction strategies McKinsey recommended at Allstate
Allstate
remain in place, some have been reined in following legal and regulatory challenges in several states.[42] Use of Colossus[edit] Many criticisms leveled against Allstate
Allstate
(and other insurers), including Barardinelli's book, involved the use of a software program called "Colossus" to process claims. In 2010, Allstate
Allstate
paid a $10 million fine to settle a lawsuit brought by 41 states concerning inconsistencies in the manner in which Colossus was used. It also agreed to standardize its use of the software. However, “it is important to note that we found no systemic underpayment of bodily injury claims,” New York Insurance
Insurance
Superintendent James J. Wrynn said in a press release.[43] See also[edit]

proposed settlement amounts as small as $50, asking claimants to "take it or leave it". The investigative report found that insurance companies often make it so expensive and time consuming to go to court to get full settlement amounts, that it would not be worth the victims time.
