Registration is open for Business Insurance's 2014 Best Places to Work in Insurance program, which identifies and recognizes high-quality workplaces in the commercial insurance industry.
As employers compete for talent and strive to be employers of choice, companies honored through the program create workplaces that do superior jobs of encouraging employees to thrive in a work environment they can love.
In the 2014 Best Places to Work in Insurance program, Business Insurance will recognize commercial insurance industry employers in several categories. With a registration deadline of June 6, we invite applications from employers from the following types of companies serving risk and benefits managers:
• Retail agents/brokers
• Wholesale brokers/managing general agents
• Reinsurance brokers
• Property/casualty insurers
• Group life/health insurers
• Claims services
• Benefits brokers and consultants
Within each category, companies are segmented by size for ranking purposes into three groups: small companies with 25 to 249 employees; medium-size companies with 250 to 999 employees; and large companies with 1,000 or more employees.
Companies that make the list of Best Places to Work in Insurance must demonstrate that they meet or exceed a minimum standard of excellence in a variety of employment-related metrics, measured against other employers in this industry as well as other companies nationwide.
The information is drawn from a two-part survey of all participating companies. One part of the survey evaluates employees' workplace experiences and company culture; the other gathers information on the employer's benefits, policies, practices and more.
Since 2009, Business Insurance has conducted the annual Best Places to Work in Insurance program in partnership with Best Companies Group, an independent workplace excellence research firm that manages similar programs in the United States and Canada.
