At Covington, La.-based Gilsbar Inc., a culture of caring is an important part of the high-quality workplace.
The top-ranked medium-size third-party administrator in this year's Business Insurance Best Places to Work in Insurance recognizes the importance of caring for employees and their families, doing so through such offerings as a health and lifestyle management program that has created a culture of wellness at Gilsbar and an environment that supports healthy lifestyles.
