Award Recognizes Outstanding Employers in the Insurance Industry
GFI Insurance Brokerage, Inc., a leading New York-based insurance firm, today announced that, for the fourth consecutive year, it has been named as one of the “Best Places to Work in Insurance.” The annual program recognizes employers for their outstanding performance in establishing workplaces where employees can thrive, enjoy their work and help their companies grow.
“It’s an absolute honor that we are consistently included on the ‘Best Places to Work’ list and a testament to the culture we’ve built at GFI Insurance,” said Brian Gross, president at GFI Insurance. “As we continue to grow our business, we’re always on the lookout for talented professionals. It’s the people behind the company who will allow us to achieve our goals – now and in the future.”
Under Gross’ leadership, GFI Insurance has expanded, opening a new office in Brooklyn last June, and is actively hiring for several positions to support the firm’s continued growth.
“Best Places to Work in Insurance” is an annual feature presented by Business Insurance and Best Companies Group that lists the agents, brokers, insurance companies and other providers with the highest levels of employee engagement and satisfaction. Harrisburg, Pennsylvania-based Best Companies Group identifies the leading employers in the insurance industry by conducting a free two-part assessment of each company. The first part is a questionnaire completed by the employer about company policies, practices and demographics. The second part is a confidential employee survey on engagement and satisfaction.
The program divides employers into the categories of small, 25-249 employees; medium, 250-999 employees; and large, 1,000 or more employees. This year’s report features 74 companies of various sizes, from 25 employees to more than 6,500.
“Being named to Business Insurance’s list of the ‘Best Places to Work in Insurance’ for 2015 demonstrates that GFI Insurance has built a culture in which employees are supported and engaged, which ultimately benefits their customers,” said Business Insurance Publisher Frank Quigley.
