Reliance Partners Ranked Among Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces in 2017
Reliance Partners is one of the highest-scoring businesses with standout employee engagement featured in June 2017 issue of Inc. Magazine.
Reliance Partners, a commercial insurance agency, has been named one of Inc. magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2017, the publication’s annual ranking in the fast-growing private company sector.
Hitting newsstands and online today in the June 2017 issue, the list is the result of a comprehensive measurement of private American companies who have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement, and stellar benefits. Out of thousands of applicants, Inc. singled our Reliance Partners’ success in this area.
Inc.’s Best Workplaces list is a magnifying glass on how innovative companies can truly raise the bar in hiring and retaining the best talent.
What does it take to become a company that workers want to be part of? Inc. magazine says it’s more than good pay and good perks – it’s also about having a clear purpose, a sense of humor, and leadership that makes the two work together.
“It is an honor to receive this recognition and a testament to the work of our whole team,” says company president and COO, Chad Eichelberger. “We know that Reliance’s success is directly correlated with the quality of our work environment – so our goal is to create a space that our employees love, but more importantly, where they know that they can succeed.”
The 2017 Inc. Best Workplaces Awards assessed applicants on the basis of benefits offered and employees’ responses to a unique, 30-question survey fielded by each of the applying companies. Responses were evaluated by the research team at Quantum Workplace. For its results to qualify, each company had to achieve a statistically significant response rate based on employee count. Survey scores account for employer size to level the playing field between small and large businesses. All companies had to have minimum of 10 employees and to be U.S.-based, privately held, and independent – that is, not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies.
“By introducing an employee survey into this year’s Best Workplaces selection process, we’ve really raised the bar. Companies that don’t score at the very top of their peer group don’t make the cut. So, our hats are off to the winners. They all excelled at engaging their workers, making them feel appreciated, and aligning them behind a mission. And remember, that’s not just our opinion: The employees told us that themselves.”
