TAMPA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--American Integrity Insurance Group, a premier Tampa-based home insurance carrier, proudly announces that it has earned two distinct honors on the Tampa Bay Times Top Workplaces 2021 list. In addition to earning a Bronze Ranking as the number three company on the Midsize Companies list, American Integrity’s Founder, President and CEO, Bob Ritchie, has been named the Top Leader for all Midsize Companies in the Tampa Bay Area.
“This is the eighth time that the Company has been recognized on the Tampa Bay Times Top Workplaces list, and each year is more meaningful to me,” said Ritchie. “It’s not about adding another plaque on the wall; it’s about the ongoing cultivation of a work environment that allows our employees to thrive while serving our agents and customers. I’m extremely humbled by our recognition this year, and I am beyond proud of how our team was able to rally and respond in such an effective way to the challenges posed by the pandemic.”
In particular, Ritchie and American Integrity were cited for the outstanding manner in which they responded to the pandemic. In addition to quickly transitioning to a 100% remote work environment over the course of one week, the company offered free counseling through its Employee Assistance Program, virtual coffee breaks and virtual Town Hall meetings to keep employees engaged and purchased PPE for its claims and sales team members who visited customers and agents (based on comfort and safety levels), among other events. Additionally, each leader engaged with their teams to help identify employees who might be dealing with anxiety, burnout and/or health issues, and had the latitude to flex and pivot as needed to address their team members’ needs.
“Our CEO always says that ‘people don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care,’” said Angie Quinn, Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer. “Last year provided our Company with a unique opportunity to demonstrate how important our employees are to us, beyond the excellent work they do each day. In addition to the resources we shared with our employees, we hosted our annual Thanksgiving ‘Gratitude Gathering’ last November, an event where we donate to others in need – be it individuals we know of who are having a difficult time or worthy organizations. We received feedback from so many employees that the 2020 event was more meaningful than ever for them. We also continued with our food drive for Metropolitan Ministries and holiday toy drive for children affiliated with the Joshua House. The chance to help others was a significant source of pride to our team last year.”
Employees at American Integrity enjoy benefits such as medical, dental, and vision, long-term care plans and fully paid short-term and long-term disability. At the office, the American Integrity Family enjoys a series of perks such as a game area with a Ping-Pong table and foosball, a state-of-the-art collaboration center, monthly employee appreciation and engagement events, a relaxation room with massage chair, wellness events, birthdays off with pay, and a free membership to an on-site fitness center.
“We offer a comprehensive employee benefits package and a matching 401(k) plan with immediate eligibility and vesting, a rare benefit in today’s work environment that, in addition to our sunny Tampa location, attracts talent from all over,” said Angie Quinn, Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer. “In addition, we work to retain talent through our six core values – integrity, commitment, teamwork, humility, passion and fun – the intangibles which have truly made American Integrity a unique and rewarding place to work.”
American Integrity Insurance is currently hiring for a number of positions.
