WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., Nov. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Great Place to Work and Fortune have honored The PURE Group, which includes Privilege Underwriters Reciprocal Exchange (PURE), as one of the 2020 Best Workplaces in New York and 2020 Best Small & Medium Workplaces respectively.
"Creating an open and growth-oriented workplace has always been a priority for the PURE Group. From the start, we've strived to provide employees with the support and resources to help them work toward a common goal and best serve our diverse membership," said Katherine Richardson, Chief Human Resources Officer at the PURE Group of Insurance Companies. "We are honored to be named to both of these lists by Great Place to Work and Fortune, as it further validates PURE's focus on creating a positive and engaging work environment."
The Small & Medium Workplaces ranking is based on confidential survey feedback representing more than 189,000 employees working at small- and medium-sized businesses in the United States, while the New York ranking considered nearly 45,000 employee surveys in the New York State or the tri-state/New York Metro Statistical Area. Great Place to Work, a global people analytics and consulting firm, evaluated more than 60 elements of team members' experience on the job. These included the extent to which employees trust leaders, the respect with which people are treated, the fairness of workplace decisions, and how much camaraderie there is among the team. Rankings are based on employees' feedback and reward companies who best include all employees, no matter who they are or what they do for the organization.
Both the Best Workplaces in New York and Best Small & Medium Workplaces stand out for excelling in some of the nation's most competitive marketplaces. Over the course of the past year, PURE has continued to expand its significant employee-centered benefits, such as a tuition reimbursement program for "passion courses"— courses unrelated to careers at PURE that instead help employees pursue personal passions. Additionally, PURE has further provided mental health resources for employees, especially during this difficult and unexpected time.
"Best Workplaces like the PURE Group have built dynamic, flexible, and transparent workplaces founded on trust," said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. "This gives companies on these lists a powerful opportunity not just to do well for their people, but also to do well for their businesses."
The Best Workplaces in New York and Best Small & Medium Workplaces are two of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and Fortune based on employee feedback from Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations. PURE has also been ranked in the past for Best Workplaces in New York, Best Workplaces in Chicago, Best Workplaces in Southern California, and Best Small & Medium Workplaces by Great Place to Work and Fortune.
