Best Agencies to Work For 2017 Bronze.jpgR&R is excited to be named a 2017 'Best Independent Insurance Agency to Work For' by Insurance Journal.

According to Insurance Journal, Employees of the Best Agencies to Work For in 2017 highlight the importance of competitive salaries, employee benefits, training and education, and other employee perks as drivers of satisfaction in the workplace. But it’s not all about compensation and benefits. Happiness in the workplace has a lot to do with people, relationships and culture.

Many employees are grateful the best agency owners support local charities and the community. Employees are grateful for the opportunities their agencies provide for them to participate in community service, as well. They take pride in working for agencies that are respected and hold strong values and ethics. Employees also appreciate the generosity of their agency owners in sharing revenues in the form of bonuses and trips.

The best agencies also provide ways to help their employees grow — by giving them the tools and technology they need, and supporting them with education, training, annual and performance reviews and, in some cases, mentors.

In addition, the winning agencies score high for overall employee benefits including wellness programs and for working conditions including flex-time. The best agencies to work for also provide employees with a strong sense of work-life balance, and deliver a workplace environment where employees feel supported wholeheartedly by management and their peers. Many of the employees say they feel like family in their agencies.
