What do Burnham Benefits Insurance Services Inc., Assurance Agency L.L.C. and Lockton Cos. L.L.C. have in common?
Each ranked first in its category in Business Insurance's 2013 Best Places to Work in Insurance Program. There's still time to register for this year's program, which recognizes insurance industry companies that have created an environment in which people thrive and enjoy their work.
Companies that will be recognized this year fall into the industry segments of benefits brokers and consultants, claims services, group life/health insurers, property/casualty insurers, retail agents/brokers, reinsurance brokers, reinsurers and wholesale brokers/managing general agents.
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.
Winners will be chosen based on a two-part survey conducted by Harrisburg, Pennsylvania-based Best Companies Group. 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.
Among other things, eligible entities must have a facility in the United States; have a minimum of 25 employees working in the United States; and must have been in business a minimum of one year.
Registration runs through June 6 for the 2014 program, and the companies recognized will be announced later in the year.
