Business Insurance Magazine and the Best Companies Group recently ranked West Bend fourth in the large employer category of Best Places to Work in Insurance in 2019! This is the tenth year in a row that we’ve been recognized on the list of companies in the insurance industry with the highest levels of employee engagement and satisfaction.
Best Companies Group conducts a simple yet thorough company assessment to determine what companies make the list. The assessment is a two-part process to gather detailed data about each participating company. In part one, the employer completes a questionnaire and in part two, employees of the company complete an employee survey.
The information collected from the company questionnaire (25% of the overall score) and the employee survey (75% of the overall score) are combined to produce a detailed set of data enabling the analysts to determine the strengths and opportunities of the participating companies. The workplaces are ranked based on this data.
We thank our associates for continuing to make West Bend a Best Place to Work!
What are you looking forward to the most this Thanksgiving? Is it time visiting with family and friends? Is it enjoying a huge feast of turkey, stuffing, cranberries, pumpkin pie, and more? Is it watching the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade and being transported back to when you were a kid? Is it an extra day filled with football on the TV? Is it the unofficial kick-off to the holiday shopping season, as “Black Friday” deals fill stores and the internet?
Whatever you do and enjoy, West Bend wants you to have a safe and happy holiday. While Thanksgiving is a time of fun, family, and food, the travel and preparations can increase safety risks and stress. To help you have a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving, check out these great resources.
