Highlighting Acuity's recognition is the company’s plan to install a full-size Ferris wheel when it completes its facilities expansion in 2016. Dubbed the ACUITY Charity Wheel, the installation will serve as a showcase for charitable and philanthropic events held at the company’s headquarters.
"Acuity is recognized as one of the best companies to work for in America because of the great work environment we have cultivated," said Ben Salzmann, ACUITY President and CEO. "Having a Ferris wheel will serve as a constant reminder that Acuity is not your typical insurance company."
In 2012, Acuity had temporarily installed a vintage Ferris wheel within its headquarters as part of a fundraiser for the Aurora Sheboygan Memorial Medical Center’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, a project that served as the inspiration for the current installation.
In selecting Acuity as one of the Coolest Offices in the U.S., PayScale also noted Acuity's unique facilities, workplace, and employee-focused culture. These qualities have earned the insurer other accolades as well, including being named the #3 large company to work for in America, the best insurer to work for, a top employer for women, and a top five employer for millennials.
“We want to be not just a great company to work for, but a great experience to be part of,” Salzmann said. “That goal drives all the decisions we make about the type of facilities we build for our staff, the benefits we provide, and the culture we work together to create.”
