ST.LOUIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Safety National, the leading provider of excess workers’ compensation insurance in the United States, has been once again named one of the Best Places to Work in the insurance industry by Business Insurance magazine. This is the second time Safety National has been named to the magazine’s list, as it previously was honored in 2009 as well. The winners will be honored at a Nov. 1st awards luncheon in New York City and also will be featured in the Nov. 7, 2011 issue of Business Insurance.
“We made a conscious decision not to enter the competition in 2010 because we were in the midst of launching our new training regimen”
This year, the program will recognize 50 companies and will celebrate employers that have created high-quality workplaces that encourage employees to thrive in a work environment they can love. Winners were determined in a two-part process that involved an employee survey and a submission from the company. Employee input via a confidential employee survey accounted for 75 percent of the assessment.
“It’s an honor to once again be recognized for our workplace by such a well-respected industry publication as Business Insurance,” said Jerry Scott, president of Safety National. “We learned a lot from the employee input we received two years ago and took the results very seriously. We then used that feedback to strengthen what already was considered to be among the best employee programs in the industry. Since then, we’ve significantly expanded our computer and industry educational training which has been particularly helpful as the insurance industry and new products have evolved. We also have focused on further strengthening our corporate culture through an enhanced brand presence and timely employee communications.
“We made a conscious decision not to enter the competition in 2010 because we were in the midst of launching our new training regimen,” he added. “At Safety National we strive for constant improvement and, most often, it’s our own team members who have the best ideas.”
