Western National Insurance Group Named One of ‘100 Best Companies to Work For’

(Minneapolis, Minn.) Western National Insurance Group today announced that it has been selected by Minnesota Business magazine as one of the year’s “100 Best Companies to Work For”. This annual recognition salutes Minnesota organizations that best set the standards for employee well-being, based on feedback from employees at those organizations.

Western National and other 100 Best Companies to Work For will be recognized at a “100 Best awards event” hosted by Minnesota Business on Thursday, June 6, in Minneapolis.

The second annual 100 Best Companies to Work For awards were chosen using data gathered from an anonymous employee satisfaction survey administered by an independent research group. Only the top 100 Minnesotan companies, as judged in areas such as work environment, employee benefits, employee happiness, and leadership, were selected for inclusion in the 100 Best Companies to Work For list.

“We are honored that our employees have affirmed Western National as one of the 100 best places to work in Minnesota,” said Stuart Henderson, president and chief executive officer of Western National Insurance Group. “Providing a quality and accommodating work environment continues to be a top priority for our group of companies, and we look forward to seeing that commitment continue to benefit our employees and customers in the years ahead.”
