BerganKDV recently launched a new benefit offering to all eligible employees called TurnSignl. TurnSignl is a black-owned company that developed a phone app that provides drivers on-demand teleconferencing with attorneys during traffic stops and after car accidents, all while their camera records the interaction.
The company was founded in 2020 with the goal to bridge the gap between residents and police and to provide an easy way to help drivers feel safer and empowered on the road. TurnSignl’s mission is to protect drivers’ civil rights, de-escalate roadside interactions, and ensure both drivers and law enforcement officers return home safely.
“BerganKDV is proud to offer TurnSignl to our team members,” said Britt Von Roden, Executive Director of People First at BerganKDV. “TurnSignl’s values of fostering connection and making a difference greatly align with the foundation of our firm’s people-first culture. We believe in TurnSignl’s mission of strengthening the ties between drivers and law enforcement to create a safer and stronger community for all. BerganKDV aims to share TurnSignl’s vision in a meaningful way by doing our part to inform local leaders and law enforcement of the new technology so that positive change can continue to be made.”
“We’re so excited to partner with the innovative team at TurnSignl,” said Sailu Timbo, Executive Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at BerganKDV. “BerganKDV’s purpose is rooted in helping others. By offering this benefit to our team members, we can better fulfill our purpose by creating a more equitable environment for drivers and granting them more peace of mind, not only for themselves but for their loved ones too. TurnSignl has the potential to make a real impact in our neighborhoods and we are so glad to be part of its journey.”
BerganKDV plans to notify local law enforcement and officials of the new benefit offering to spread awareness of TurnSignl’s mission and background so that community leaders know that this type of technology is available and being used on the roads.
TurnSignl is headquartered in Minneapolis, MN. Currently, the app is available in almost 30 states and counting. To learn more about TurnSignl, you can visit its website at https://www.turnsignl.com/.
