Insurance Business America (IBA) magazine has published its annual nation-wide list, Top Insurance Employers 2021, which includes West Kentucky-based agency, Peel & Holland in their 26 to 100 employees category. Earlier this year, IBA surveyed thousands of insurance professionals from across the United States, including the employees of Peel & Holland.
This annual survey is designed to uncover the insurance industry’s best employers, asking employees to weigh in on various aspects of their workplace, from compensation and benefits to employee development and culture. Their Special Report, published August 13, delves into the “recipe” for a great work environment in the insurance industry.
“This recognition from Insurance Business America is truly humbling, but also a testament to the culture built by our team members. Peel & Holland was named the #1 Best Place to Work in Kentucky earlier this year, and now to be included on a list among the best in the nation is an extraordinary honor,” says company president Roy Riley.
IBA’s nation-wide survey asked which traits employees value most in their insurance workplace, and culture came up again and again in the comments. Transparency and communication were both mentioned often when asked what their employers do well, sharing their appreciation of feeling valued and listened to. In addition, insurance-industry employees from across the country clearly seek companies that are willing to invest in professional development and mentorship.
“Peel & Holland is blessed with a very loyal team, some of whom have made Peel & Holland their home for decades. As we continue to grow regionally, we are working hard to support an organizational mindset of mentoring employees who may be new to the insurance industry, showing them that insurance doesn’t have to be boring. Instead, it’s a job that truly matters to our clients, protecting all the things they have worked very hard for, whether it’s their business, family, or personal assets,” Riley further commented.
“Our leadership team is great about sharing information, and that just makes our jobs easier. Peel & Holland is a rewarding place to work every day. Making a national list like this is wonderful, but honestly, I’m not surprised,” said long-time Peel & Holland team member Debbie Draffen.
