Rockford, Illinois, April 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ROCKFORD, Illinois – Rockford Mutual Insurance Company (RMIC) was recently named one of the 2022 Best Places to Work in Illinois. This awards program began in 2006, promoted by the Daily Herald Business Ledger in partnership with the Illinois Chamber of Commerce, MRA-The Management Association, Small Business Advocacy Council and Best Companies Group.
This statewide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor Illinois’ best places to work, benefiting the economy, workforce and state enterprises. The 2022 list of Best Workplaces in Illinois contains three categories: Small Employers (15-99 U.S. employees), Medium Employers (100-499 U.S. employees), and Large Employers (500 or more U.S. employees). RMIC was named one of Illinois’ Best Places to Work in the Small Business category.
Across the state, businesses entered the two-part process to determine the best places to work in Illinois. Approximately 25% of the total assessment is based on workplace policies, practices and demographics; while 75% of the total rating is based on an employee survey to measure employee experience. Best Companies Group handled the entire registration and survey process in Illinois, analyzing the data and using their expertise to determine the final ranking.
“It is very gratifying to have earned this recognition for the third year in a row,” said Kent Shantz, President and CEO of RMIC, “We place great value on our associates and strive to make them feeling safe, valued, respected, energized and motivated Rockford Mutual reaches new heights through the hard work and commitment of our employees day in and day out, and I couldn’t be more grateful to be a part of it.
