BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Registration is open for Business Insurance's 2012 Best Places to Work in Insurance program.

The program identifies and recognizes high-quality workplaces in the commercial insurance industry.

As employers compete for talent and strive to be an employer of choice, companies that will be honored this year have created workplaces that do superior jobs of encouraging employees to thrive in a workplace they can love.

In the 2012 Best Places to Work in Insurance program, Business Insurance will recognize commercial insurance industry employers in several categories. With a registration deadline of June 8, 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 administrators

• Benefits Brokers and consultants

• Reinsurers

Within each category, companies are segmented by size for ranking purposes into three groups: small companies—those with 25 to 249 employees; medium-size companies—those with 250 to 999 employees; and large companies—those with 1,000 or more employees.

To make the Best Places to Work in Insurance list, each company must demonstrate that it meets or exceeds 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 conducted 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 numerous similar regional and industry programs in the United States and Canada.
