MGIS Earns 2012 “Best Places to Work in Insurance” for Third Consecutive Year

SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The MGIS Companies, Inc. (MGIS), the nation’s leading provider of insurance products and services specifically for physicians, today announced the company has been named by Business Insurance® as one of the “Best Places to Work in Insurance” for the third consecutive year. The national program is designed to identify and recognize high-quality workplaces through an assessment process that includes employee feedback.

“MGIS is proud of its ongoing distinction as a ‘Best Places to Work in Insurance,’” said Jeff Brunken, president of MGIS. “Our success in creating superior products for physicians is directly attributable to our skilled, dedicated team, and we strive to provide a work environment that attracts and retains top talent through innovation, teamwork, customer-focus and balanced lifestyle.”

Business Insurance conducts the annual “Best Places to Work in Insurance” program in partnership with Best Companies Group, an independent workplace excellence research firm that manages numerous similar regional and industry programs in the United States and Canada.

Companies from across the country entered the two-part survey process to determine the “Best Places to Work in Insurance.” The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in insurance, analyzed the data and determined the final rankings.

As one of the fastest-growing companies serving the physician group marketplace, MGIS is dedicated to attracting and retaining superior employees who are committed to the company’s continued success. MGIS provides a work environment that fosters creativity and a passion for excellence. Employees possess a strong work ethic and have a reputation for providing superior customer service by consistently exceeding expectations. The energetic team environment at MGIS attracts individuals who are motivated, goal oriented and looking for a company that offers a positive, challenging environment where they can grow personally and professionally.

MGIS offers an innovative range of company benefits, including the Positive Action Creates Earnings (P.A.C.E.) Program, which enables employees to share in company profits; a specialized academic approach to 401(k) plans that includes a company contribution and takes the guesswork out of retirement investments; plus a self-funded approach to its health plan that results in MGIS having the flexibility to offer a rich menu of benefits to employees and their families.

MGIS actively promotes a family-like atmosphere that recognizes the importance of individuals. In addition to its emphasis on maintaining work/life balance, the company organizes a variety of activities that enable employees to interact socially.
