Risk Strategies Named in Business Insurance’s Annual Best Places to Work in Insurance for the Fifth Consecutive Year

Award Recognizes Outstanding Employers in the Insurance Industry

BOSTON, September 02, 2022 -- Risk Strategies, a leading national specialty insurance brokerage and risk management and consulting firm, today announced it has been named for the fifth consecutive year in the annual Best Places to Work in Insurance program. The award recognizes employers for their outstanding performance in establishing workplaces where employees can thrive, enjoy their work, and help their companies grow.

Founded in 1997 in Boston, Risk Strategies is a leading independent specialty broker providing comprehensive risk management advisory services, insurance and reinsurance services for property & casualty, employee benefits and private client services risks. Growing quickly, both organically and through mergers and acquisitions, 140 specialty firms have joined the company in the past decade, bringing its workforce to nearly 4,000 associates.

“Since our founding, Risk Strategies has built an entrepreneurial people-centric culture,” said John Mina, chief executive officer. “Our people are the foundation of our success. We are dedicated to creating a destination workplace that is fulfilling and rewarding for our associates. For five consecutive years, the Best Places to Work in Insurance recognition confirms that our efforts are working.”

Best Places to Work in Insurance is an annual sponsored content feature presented by the Custom Publishing unit of Business Insurance and Best Companies Group that lists the agents, brokers, insurance companies, and other providers with the highest levels of employee engagement and satisfaction. Harrisburg, Pa.-based Best Companies Group identifies the leading employers in the insurance industry by conducting a free 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 receive this honor again,” said Amanda Mullan, chief human resources officer. “Our people are our greatest asset, and we want to maintain a workplace where our associates experience a great work life and culture. We will continue to evolve and advance our people-centric culture to be a core differentiation for the company.”

The program divides employers into the categories of small, 25-249 employees; medium, 250-999 employees; and large, 1,000 or more employees. This year’s report features 100 companies of various sizes, from 25 employees to more than 4,000.

The ranking and profiles of the winning companies will be unveiled in the November issue of Business Insurance and online at BusinessInsurance.com.
