RICHMOND, VIRGINIA (March 1, 2012)…
Elephant Insurance was recently named as one of the 2012 Best Places to Work in Virginia. The annual list of “Best Places to Work” was created by Virginia Business and Best Companies Group. Elephant prides its self on its culture, a contributing factor in the company’s growing success.
The “Best Places to Work” award program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Virginia, benefiting the state’s economy, its workforce, and businesses. The Best Places to Work in Virginia list is made up of a total of 70 companies, split into three groups based on the size of its workforce. Elephant Insurance ranked 15th among in the mid-size employer category (100-249), marking the second consecutive year the company has made this prestigious list.
“We do lots of different things to build up the camaraderie- You want people to be smiling, and laughing while they work. To be recognized for the second year in a row means a great deal to the Elephant herd. We each take ownership in the company we are creating, and we don’t just say this is a great place to work, we live it daily!” Andrew Rose, Elephant Insurance President & CEO
Organizations from across the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in Virginia. This survey consisted of an evaluation of each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics, as well as a survey dedicated solely to measuring the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top organizations and the final ranking.
“Spend a little bit of money making staff happy and that increases the bottom line. Whether it is a Ping Pong tournament, Chili Cook-off, or Elephant’s office Olympics, there’s business logic and rationale to what we do,” Andrew Rose, Elephant Insurance President & CEO. “But it is more than a business strategy; it is the Elephant way. Simply put people who love what they do, do it better.”
