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.

R&R Insurance Achieves Best Practices Status

Posted by Steph Schreiber

BestPracticesAgency_2016.jpgWaukesha, WI - R&R Insurance Services, Inc. is part of an elite group of independent insurance agencies around the United States participating in the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA or the Big “I”) “Best Practices” Study Group.

Each year since 1993, IIABA and Reagan Consulting, an Atlanta-based management consulting firm, join forces to study the country’s leading agencies in six revenue categories. The agencies comprising the study groups are selected every third year through a comprehensive nomination and qualifying process and awarded a “Best Practices Agency” designation. The selected “Best Practices” agencies retain their status during the three-year cycle by submitting extensive financial and operational data for review each year.  

“Celebrating 40 years in business, we are extremely proud of the continued growth of R&R Insurance over the years,” says Ken Riesch, R&R Insurance, President and CEO. “The investments we're making today  in our people and resources are setting the table for a strong future.”

More than 1,800 independent agencies throughout the U.S. were nominated to take part in the annual study, but only 254 agencies qualified for the honor. To be chosen, the agency had to be among the top-performing agencies in one of six revenue categories.  The agency was nominated by either an IIABA affiliated state association or an insurance company and qualified based on its operational excellence.

The Best Practices Study was initiated by IIABA in 1993 as the foundation for efforts to improve agency performance. The annual survey and study of leading independent insurance agencies documents the business practices of the highest performing agencies and urges others to adopt similar practices.

R&R Insurance Services, Inc. has served the insurance needs of southeastern Wisconsin since 1975. Today, R&R is Wisconsin’s largest singly owned independent insurance agency offering businesses and individuals a full range of insurance products including property casualty, employee benefits, workers compensation, liability, medical malpractice, life, dental, and home/auto. R&R is also a shareholder with Assurex Global, a worldwide network of leading independent insurance agencies.

Founded in 1896, IIABA is the nation’s oldest and largest national association of independent insurance agents and brokers, representing a network of more than 300,000 agents, brokers and their employees nationally. Its members are businesses that offer customers a choice of policies from a variety of insurance companies. Independent agents and brokers offer all lines of insurance – property, casualty, life and health – as well as employee benefit plans and retirement products.  For more information, visit www.independentagents.com.
