Hagerty Named a Great Place to Work® for Second Year
We’re very pleased to tell you that Hagerty was named by Great Place to Work® as one of the best workplaces in the United States on its annual 2014 Best Small & Medium Workplaces list, published in FORTUNE magazine. Ranked 6th, this is the second time in two years that we’ve received this honor, which recognizes companies with exceptional workplace cultures for the past 10 years. Last year we came in at 13th in the rankings.
Competing against hundreds of companies across the country, Hagerty participated in a rigorous selection process, which included an employee survey and an in-depth questionnaire about benefits programs and company practices. Great Place to Work® evaluates each application using its unique methodology based on five dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.
In compiling the list, Great Place to Work has found that employees believe they work for great organizations when they consistently trust the people they work for, have pride in what they do and enjoy the people they work with.
“Our employees are responsible for our success and we put a lot of effort into fostering a fulfilling workplace environment,” stated McKeel Hagerty, President and CEO. “I am especially honored by the knowledge that our employees continue to have a high level of trust in Hagerty. Our trust index rose three percent from 2013, showcasing that 91 percent of our workforce have sincere love for their work.”
Some of the reasons cited as to why Hagerty was selected for the honor include:
- The company’s dedication to professional and personal development of its workforce through education at its own Hagerty University and wellness programming at the corporate gym, Ironworks.
- Connections with enthusiasts within the classic vehicle community through such activities as youth programming, hobby education and preservation, and the communities in which employees live and work, via Hagerty Cares, the company’s volunteer program.
- Commitment to transparency and communication from the CEO, Senior Leadership and their direct managers.
