WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.—May 16, 2019—The PURE Group of Insurance Companies (the PURE Group), which includes Privilege Underwriters Reciprocal Exchange (PURE), the policyholder-owned property and casualty insurer designed for high net worth individuals and families, has been named one of Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2019. This is the second consecutive year PURE has made the list. From student loan assistance to funding for passion courses, PURE’s unique offerings provide employees with a supportive, productive environment that promotes empathy and dedication to PURE’s membership.
Out of thousands of applicants, Inc. singled out just over 300 finalists. Each nominated company took part in an employee survey, conducted by Omaha’s Quantum Workplace, on topics including trust, management effectiveness, perks, and confidence in the future. Inc. gathered, analyzed, and audited the data, and then ranked all the employers using a composite score of survey results.
The strongest engagement scores came from companies that prioritize the most human elements of work—leading the way in employee recognition, performance management and diversity. These elements, always a key part of PURE’s culture, have only continued to grow over the past year, evidenced by PURE’s recent partnership with CommonBond to provide monthly contributions to employees’ student loan repayments—helping to alleviate a major stressor and encourage financial health. Additionally, other benefits, like access to subscription wellness apps and flexible paid time off, continue to promote employee engagement, wellness and happiness.
"A great member experience starts with a great employee experience," said Katherine Richardson, Chief Human Resources Officer for the PURE Group of Insurance Companies. "We are proud to build a culture that supports and gives back to those who come to work every day in service of our membership, are humbled by this recognition and remain deeply committed to continuing our efforts in making PURE a standout place to work.”
"With today's tight labor market, building a great corporate culture is more important than ever,” says Inc. magazine editor in chief James Ledbetter. “The companies on Inc.'s Best Workplaces list are setting an example that the whole country can learn from."
