WEST BEND, WI (September 13, 2023) – West Bend Mutual Insurance Company was recently honored with inclusion in two lists of exemplary workplaces. First is the annual Best Places to Work in Insurance award program, which recognizes employers for their outstanding performance in establishing workplaces where employees can thrive, enjoy their work, and help their companies grow. This is the fourteenth consecutive year West Bend has made the list. The second list is Fortune Magazine's Best Workplaces in Financial Services & Insurance™, which is based on an anonymous employee survey wherein respondents ranked West Bend well above the national average in the areas of leadership strength and integrity, pride in their work, opportunities for professional development, and support of work-life balance.
"While recognition as a top workplace among our peers is important, it's extremely meaningful when we're consistently honored from associate-based surveys," said Rob Jacques, president. "We are focused on creating a positive, welcoming environment, but at the heart of it, it's our associates that drive our great culture and make West Bend a special place."
West Bend associates say they like being part of a company with community and environmental priorities. West Bend actively supports dozens of not-for-profit organizations, including Feeding America, United Way, and The MACC Fund. Care for the environment is promoted with gardens for associates to grow their own organic produce, reduction of paper use, and the preservation of 160 acres of prairie on their campus.
