Scirocco Group of Hasbrouck Heights was recently named as one of the 2011 Best Places to Work in Insurance. Scirocco Group has received this honor since the awards program was created in 2009 by Business Insurance, in partnership with Best Companies Group.
This nationwide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in the insurance industry, benefiting the industry's economy, its workforce and businesses. The 2011 Best Places to Work in Insurance list is made up of 50 companies.
To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:
- Have at least 25 employees working in the United States;
- Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business or government entity;
- Be a publicly or privately held business;
- Have a facility in the United States;
- Must be in business a minimum of 1 year; and
- Must be one of the following: Retail/Agents Brokers, Wholesale Brokers/Managing General Agents, Reinsurance Brokers, Claims Managers, Group Health Advisors, Property/Casualty Insurers or Group Life/Health Insurers.
Companies from across the nation entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Insurance. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.
The alphabetical list of the 50 Best Places to Work in Insurance has been released in the September 12th issue of Business Insurance and the final profiles and rankings will be unveiled and published in the November 7th issue of Business Insurance.
