For Second Consecutive Year, MGIS Is Recognized by Business Insurance as One of the Best Places to Work in Insurance

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - Sep 15, 2011) - The MGIS Companies, Inc. (MGIS) is pleased to announce it has been selected again as one of the Best Places to Work in Insurance. For the second consecutive year, Business Insurance has recognized MGIS for its high-quality workplace and dedicated employees.

According to Glenna Lasater, assistant vice president of human resources at MGIS, the award does not come easy. "The evaluation process involves both a confidential employee satisfaction survey and a questionnaire that focuses on benefit programs, policies, practices and other general information," she said. "The positive results speak highly of our employee-focused culture and workplace satisfaction."

The Best Places to Work competition is open to all publicly or privately held P&C insurers, group life/health insurers, retail agents and brokers, wholesale brokers/managing general agents, reinsurance brokers, group health advisers, and claims managers with at least 25 employees working in the United States and serving the commercial insurance market. The award program is a joint effort between Business Insurance and the Best Companies Group, an independent workplace excellence research firm. Winners will be recognized at a Nov. 1 awards luncheon in New York.

"As one of only 50 companies recognized in this year's program, MGIS is again honored to be listed among the nation's most elite insurance organizations," said Jeff Brunken, president and managing partner, The MGIS Companies, Inc. "Give our employees credit. A strong work ethic and rock-solid reputation for providing superior customer service to our physician clients have served us well for more than 40 years."

Being recognized in both 2011 and 2010 as one of the Best Places to Work in Insurance follows MGIS' prestigious 2009 Utah Work/Life Award, where it was named one of Utah's Best Places to Work.
