KANSAS CITY, Mo., Oct. 9, 2018 – Lockton has been named a Best Place to Work in insurance for the tenth straight year. The Best Places to Work in Insurance program was started in 2009 and is presented by Business Insurance and Best Companies Group. It recognizes employers for their outstanding performance in establishing workplaces where employees can thrive, enjoy their work and help their companies grow.

“Being named to Business Insurance’s list of the Best Places to Work in Insurance for 2018 demonstrates that Lockton has built a culture in which Associates are supported, which benefits their clients and Lockton’s financial performance,” says Business Insurance Publisher Keith Kenner.

Best Companies Group identifies the leading employers in the insurance industry by conducting a two-part assessment of each company. The first part is a questionnaire completed by the employer about company policies, practices and demographics. The second part is a confidential employee survey on engagement and satisfaction.

“We are thrilled to once again be named a Best Place to Work in Insurance,” said Ron Lockton, president and CEO of Lockton. “We strive to make LocktonLife the best is can be for our Associates. Being on the list for all 10 years the program has existed, confirms that Lockton creates opportunities for our Associates to build their best LocktonLife.”

Lockton strongly believes that its success is a result of the strength of their Associates. By attracting the best talent in the industry, Lockton feels that they can continue to build upon their accomplishments. Lockton Associates enjoy the freedom, resources and personal responsibility to meet their clients’ needs. This entrepreneurial spirit and performance-driving commitment helps keep Associates motivated and clients satisfied.
