Gilsbar Named in Business Insurance’s Annual Best Places to Work in Insurance

Gilsbar provides exciting challenges, growth opportunities, a rewarding career and a great work-life balance. Our culture is unique, diverse and creative.

Gilsbar has been selected by Business Insurance as one of the 2016 Best Places to Work in Insurance. This is the 7th year in a row that Gilsbar has been recognized. The complete list of this year’s winners is available online here. The ranking and profiles of the winning companies will be published in the November edition of Business Insurance.

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, Pa.-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.

“Being named to Business Insurance’s list of the Best Places to Work in Insurance for 2016 demonstrates that Gilsbar has built a culture in which employees are supported and engaged, which benefits their customers and the employers’ financial performance,” says Business Insurance Publisher Peter Oxner.

Melissa McGovern, an account manager, said of her experience at Gilsbar, “I don’t have just a job. I have the opportunity every day to work with great people focused on servicing our clients. Gilsbar provides exciting challenges, growth opportunities, a rewarding career and a great work-life balance. Our culture is unique, diverse and creative.

“Our employees are the most important thing Gilsbar has to offer our clients. They are dedicated and hard-working, and we’re proud to be doing our part to make their jobs and lives the best they can be,” said Doug Layman, President of Gilsbar Health & Life.
