Arthur J. Gallagher has announced that it has been recognised by Forbes magazine as a “World’s Best Employer” for 2018.
Gallagher added in a company release that it is honoured to be the only insurance brokerage firm that made the list; the brokerage ranked #344.
“We are very proud to be recognised by Forbes for what we think has been in our DNA since my grandfather started the business in 1927 - the best environment to attract top talent,” said Gallagher chairman, president and CEO J. Patrick Gallagher, Jr.
“The fact that we are the only insurance brokerage company to be recognised makes us even prouder. No matter which geography our employees work from, we want each individual to be themselves, grow with us, and drive a positive impact—that’s The Gallagher Way.”
“This recognition is particularly meaningful because it signifies that our unique culture resonates with our nearly 30,000 employees around the globe,” added Gallagher chief human resources officer Susan E. Pietrucha.
This is Forbes’ second ranking for its annual series. Statista helped collect and analyse anonymous employee reviews to compose the ranking list. To create the list, some 360,000 global employee recommendations were collected.
