BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Plymouth Rock Assurance, a leading auto insurance company serving Massachusetts and Connecticut, has been named one of Massachusetts’ best employers by the Boston Globe’s annual Top Places to Work magazine. In its first year participating in the program, Plymouth Rock is the only auto insurance company to make the list in its respective size category.
With more than 30 years of experience insuring drivers across Massachusetts, Plymouth Rock Assurance is a member of the Plymouth Rock Group of Companies, which together write and manage over $1 billion in annual automobile and homeowners’ insurance premiums. Founded on a vision to set a new, higher standard of customer service in the auto insurance industry, Plymouth Rock strives to foster a rewarding and supportive work environment that provides its employees with challenging work that promotes creativity, innovation and job satisfaction.
“We have always been committed to hiring first-rate people, providing them an unusually happy and stable office environment, and expecting them to give us hard work, integrity and loyalty in return,” said Jim Stone, Founder of Plymouth Rock Assurance. “This recognition is a testament to those talented, hard-working people.”
Employees at Plymouth Rock’s New England headquarters, located across from Boston’s South Station, were among approximately 73,500 respondents to the Globe’s survey. The survey, conducted by employee survey firm WorkplaceDynamics, measured responses to statements regarding six key factors related to employee happiness, including company direction, execution, employee connection, workload and responsibility, management, and pay and benefits.
“Employer success can’t be measured solely in profits and revenue,” said Boston Globe Business Editor Mark Pothier. “What matters most to employers are their people. This year’s winning companies go above and beyond to motivate and challenge their workers, which tends to encourage innovation and loyalty.”
