Acuity is named to Forbes America’s Best Midsize Employers list. Acuity is ranked at #26 in the nation out of 500 companies on the list, a more than 400-point jump for the insurer over 2021.
“Acuity has worked to build a workplace where people know they are valued and supported. We are pleased to be recognized among Forbes America’s Best Midsize Employers,” said Ben Salzmann, Acuity President and CEO.
“We are committed to being a great employer,” said Joan Ravanelli Miller, Acuity General Counsel and Vice President - Human Resources. “Being a workplace people want to be a part of, whether working on-site, remotely, or in a hybrid work environment, is the foundation of Acuity’s high job satisfaction, low turnover, and industry-leading results.”
America’s Best Employers were selected based on an independent survey where 60,000 employees in 25 different industries working for companies with at least 1,000 people employed in their U.S. locations were asked open-ended questions regarding their own employer. The evaluation was based on both direct and indirect recommendations.
In addition to providing employees competitive salaries and professional development opportunity, Acuity offers many work-life integration benefits, generous health insurance benefits, a 401(k) company contribution that has averaged 10.5% over the past five years without a required match, and more. The insurer recently announced it plans to hire 130 people in 2022.
This latest honor adds to Acuity’s continued and growing recognition as a great place to work. Acuity was ranked #1 in the nation among Glassdoor’s 20 Highest Rated Companies for Work/Life Balance During COVID-19 for two consecutive years, earned a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, and was named a Top Entry Level Employer by CollegeGrad.com.
