Strong legacy - Established in 1914 by the state legislature, State Fund is California's stable provider of workers' compensation insurance and a vital asset to California businesses. Our history parallels the dynamic, influential, and innovative history of California itself.
Noble purpose - With a long history of supporting California employers and injured workers, State Fund has a noble purpose of helping businesses and workers now and for years to come. Our employees genuinely care about those we serve and are motivated by a desire to do the right thing. As we look to the future, we work hard every day to ensure our workers’ compensation system will continue to help sustain California’s economy.
Meaningful work - With a noble purpose, it’s no surprise that we offer employees opportunities for important, meaningful work. We offer the kind of work that makes you feel good about what you do for a living and provides the sense of making a real contribution.
Caring and supportive - We're a not-for-profit enterprise committed to protecting the people who make California work.

Exceptional benefits - We recognize it’s the people who make this organization great, and we are committed to investing in our people. We offer generous medical benefits which provide employees and their families with substantial coverage for health, dental, and vision care at minimal cost.

We are committed to providing the tools and resources employees need to get where they want to go within the organization.
Knowledge sharing - Because we focus solely on providing workers’ compensation insurance to California businesses, our knowledge and experience in this area is exceptional. Our team members build expertise through in-house training in the areas of claims adjustment, underwriting, loss control, risk management, customer service, supervision, and many others.
Support for continuing education - We value education and encourages employees to be life long learners. We provide tuition reimbursement and an Upward Mobility Program to help employees pursue their dreams of continuing education and advance their careers.

Our employees participate in career development programs that include on-the-job training, classroom training, career coaching and job shadowing.
Multiple career paths - We've created a place where employees can grow in different career paths. We encourage our employees to explore their options within State Fund and pursue career growth opportunities of interest to them. To help employees do this, we offer Individual Development Plans that help them map out their careers.
Strong leadership - Great leaders have a real impact on the work environment and what we can accomplish. That’s why we invest in and cultivate our leadership skill set. Our Emerging Leader Program provides future leaders with the opportunity to see how each department works, better understand the unique contributions made across the organization and learn how each part of our organization enables us to help fulfill our mission/purpose and thereby contribute to our success and the success of California.
