NEW HARTFORD — The Utica National Insurance Group has been named a top insurance workplace by Insurance Business America magazine for the second straight year. From the hundreds of organizations that participated nationwide, only 53 hit the high standard needed to secure a spot on the list, including the 105-year-old property/casualty company headquartered in Central New York.
Utica National, which employs 1,300 people countrywide, was one of just five companies to place in the “large employer” category.
Over 175 employees completed an anonymous survey and provided their overall impressions of the company, rating it on a number of metrics, including work environment, compensation, benefits and incentives, culture, employee development and more.
“Our company’s mission is to make people feel secure, appreciated and respected – and that begins with our team members,” said Rich Creedon, Utica National’s Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer. “Whether they’ve been with us a short time or 40 years, we want everyone to enjoy coming to work and contribute to helping others – including our agents, policyholders and vendors – feel the same way.”
“We’ve accomplished so much working as a team over our company’s long history,” added Kristen Martin, Utica National’s President and Chief Operating Officer. “Being recognized once again by Insurance Business America is a testament to the hard work and dedication that have helped us thrive into our second century, and we’re grateful for this honor.”
The organization has offices in the following cities: Duluth, Ga.; Des Plaines, Ill.; Indianapolis, Ind.; Wakefield, Mass.; Amherst, N.Y.; New Hartford; Utica; Woodbury, N.Y.; Columbus, Ohio; Richardson, Texas and Richmond, Va.
