National Interstate Insurance Company Receives 2016 Top Workplaces Award From the Cleveland Plain Dealer

RICHFIELD, Ohio, July 13, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- National Interstate, a leading provider of commercial transportation insurance, is proud to announce it has been awarded a 2016 Top Workplaces honor by The Cleveland Plain Dealer. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered to the organization by Workplace Dynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in workplace improvement and organizational health.

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest but rather a comprehensive measurement of many aspects of workplace culture,” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. Who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together.”

“We’re extremely proud to be recognized as one of Northeast Ohio’s top workplaces by The Plain Dealer, and thank our dedicated team of employees who made this possible,” said Tony Mercurio, President and Chief Executive Officer of National Interstate. “Our corporate tag line is ‘An Insurance Experience Built Around you’, and this applies to our employees as well. We have worked hard to create a vibrant workplace culture that allows our employees to build a rewarding career.”

“Helping our employees grow their careers is an integral part of our culture and what my team does every day,” added Tony Brown, Vice President of Human Resources. “When our employees are properly trained and equipped with the appropriate tools, they’re able to build exceptional relationships with our customers, both internal and external, and confidently meet and exceed the customer’s expectations.
