Swingle Collins & Associates selected as one of the 2012 Best Places to Work in Insurance

Swingle Collins has received the honor of being selected by Business Insurance and the Best Companies Group as one of the 2012 Best Places to Work in Insurance. The competition involved months of in-depth evaluation and was open to all publicly or privately held property/casualty insurers, group life/health insurers, retail agents and brokers, wholesale brokers/managing general agents, reinsurers, reinsurance brokers, benefits brokers and advisers, and claims managers serving the commercial insurance market with at least 25 employees in the United States. To earn this award Swingle Collins & Associates has created a work environment in which employees thrive and enjoyed doing so. Our employees enjoy such benefits as twice-yearly bonuses, holiday gifts, a jeans Friday program for charity and pizza days. Regular community service initiatives at the company include support of a cystic fibrosis golf tournament, the Salesmanship Club of Dallas and a troop holiday mail-out.

As a small company, management is readily available to staff, and employees enjoy flexible hours for such purposes as attending children’s school events, family members’ medical appointments, and more. In an effort to maintain employees’ work/life balance, overtime is kept to a minimum, and meetings and staff-only events are limited to work hours.

Insurance companies recognized this year in the competition ranged in size from 26 to 8,445 employees.

Best Companies Group, an independent workplace excellence research firm that manages other industry and regional programs in the United States and Canada, managed the registration process, conducted the surveys, evaluated the data and selected the firms chosen as Best Places to Work in Insurance.

Swingle Collins & Associates is honored to receive this award and also to have been placing insurance for families and businesses since 1982.

“We appreciate the recognition. It has always been important to us to make sure our employees are well taken care of and appreciated for all their hard work.”  -Frank Swingle
