Schaumburg, IL – Great Place to Work® and Fortune have honored Assurance, a Marsh & McLennan Agency LLC company, as one of the 2020 Best Small & Medium Workplaces™. The ranking is based on confidential survey feedback representing more than 189,000 employees working at small- and medium-sized businesses in the United States. Assurance took the No. 30 spot for 2020, the ninth consecutive year it’s made the list, and up from the No. 97 spot in 2019.
Great Place to Work, a global people analytics and company culture research firm, evaluated more than 60 elements of team members’ experience on the job. These included the extent to which employees trust leaders, the respect with which people are treated, the fairness of workplace decisions, and how much camaraderie there is among the team.
“We’ve endured and, at times, even thrived during this pandemic by simply leaning into our culture of empathy and understanding,” said Tony Chimino, CEO, MMA Midwest. “We’ve extended ourselves to support our colleagues in new ways and they’ve paid it forward by giving unprecedented service to our clients, marrying our high colleague engagement with outstanding business performance.”
The Best Small & Medium Workplaces stand out for exceling in one of the nation’s most competitive marketplaces. More than 96% of Assurance employees say it is a great place to work compared to 59% of employees at a typical U.S.-based company.
“Best Workplaces like Assurance, who took the No. 30 spot on the list, have built dynamic, flexible, and transparent workplaces founded on trust,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “This gives companies on this list a powerful opportunity not just to do well for their people, but also to do well for their businesses.”
