Winter 2020 Issue

Wisconsin Reinsurance Corporation (The WRC Group) has been named in the annual Best Places to Work in Insurance program, which recognizes employers for their outstanding performance in establishing workplaces where employees can thrive, enjoy their work and help their companies grow.

WRC leads the way in supporting and protecting the mutual industry across the Midwest. The company partners with mutual clients, offering products and services that mutuals need to remain competitive, providing professional guidance when requested, and advancing funds quickly to assist with large-scale losses. The WRC Group includes Wisconsin Reinsurance, 1st Auto Casualty Insurance Company, WRC Agency and Wisconsin Adjusting Service, Inc.

“The WRC Group is incredibly proud to be designated one of the Best Places to Work in Insurance,” says Jason Fogg, WRC Executive Vice President. “Our greatest asset has always been our incredible team of dedicated professionals who take great pride in helping our customers, and each other, whenever needed. You could not ask for a better group of people to work with.”

“Being named to Business Insurance’s list of the Best Places to Work in Insurance for 2019 demonstrates that Wisconsin Reinsurance Corporation has built a culture in which employees are supported and engaged, which benefits their customers and the employers’ financial performance,” says Business Insurance Publisher Peter Oxner.

WRC rates high with employees in benefits and culture. The strong wellness program features a 35-hour work week, and designated weekly wellness time to exercise in onsite fitness facilities, take walks, help in the company garden or have chair massages. The retirement program offers a lofty company match. WRC also promotes a community focus by supporting events such as Earth Day and Race for the Cure, and annually giving financial gifts to charities selected by each employee. Those donations reached $5,000 in 2019.

Best Places to Work in Insurance is an annual sponsored content feature presented by the Custom Publishing unit of Business Insurance and Best Companies Group that lists the agents, brokers, insurance companies and other providers with the highest levels of employee engagement and satisfaction. Harrisburg, Pennsylvania-based Best Companies Group identifies the leading employers in the insurance industry by conducting a free two-part assessment of each company. The first part is a questionnaire completed by the employer about company policies, practices and demographics. The second part is a confidential employee survey on engagement and satisfaction.

The program divides employers into the categories of small, 25-249 employees; medium, 250-999 employees; and large, 1,000 or more employees. The 2019 report featured 100 companies of various sizes, from 25 employees to more than 4,000.
