Amerisure Mutual Insurance Company, one of the nation’s leading property and casualty insurance companies, announced today it has been named one of Metropolitan Detroit's 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For by the Michigan Business and Professional Association (MBPA). Amerisure was selected from among hundreds of businesses located in southeast Mich.
“It’s a great honor to receive this recognition eight times from the Michigan Business and Professional Association,” said Angela McBride, Vice President of Human Resources with Amerisure. “We are passionate about serving the needs of our current and future employees by exceeding standards in the areas of employment practices, and receiving this award confirms that Amerisure is a leading employer.”
Amerisure ranked above average in several categories such as: employee education and development; employee enrichment, engagement and retention; work-life balance; recruitment, selection and orientation; and participation in community initiatives to help improve the local community.
Being considered for this honor is a rigorous process. Nominated companies completed an extensive questionnaire regarding its policies and practices. Employees were randomly selected to participate in an anonymous confidential survey about their work environment. Once the surveys and company’s background information was submitted, an independent market research firm examined the data. The organizations receiving the highest points were selected as one of Metropolitan Detroit's 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For.
“The selection, recognition and awarding of this year’s 101 companies allows our organization to showcase their best practices,” said Jennifer Kluge, MBPA President. “The honorees have clearly demonstrated why each of them would be an ideal place for employees to work. Companies that capitalize on their greatest resource—their employees—know how to attract and retain top talent.”
In addition to receiving Metropolitan Detroit's 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For award, Amerisure has also been honored with the 2013 Alfred P. Sloan Award for Excellence in Workplace Effectiveness and Flexibility.
Recipients of the annual award will be honored at an event on Oct. 30 at The Henry Hotel in Dearborn, Mich.
