ROCKFORD MUTUAL INSURANCE COMPANY NAMED ONE OF THE 2021 BEST PLACES TO WORK IN ILLINOIS

Rockford Mutual Insurance Company (RMIC) was recently named as one of the 2021 Best Places to Work in Illinois. This awards program began in 2006, promoted by The Daily Herald Business Ledger in partnership with the Illinois Chamber of Commerce, MRA-The Management Association, the Small Business Advocacy Council and Best Companies Group. 

This statewide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best places of employment in Illinois, benefiting the state's economy, workforce and businesses. The 2021 Best Places to Work in Illinois list is made up of 35 companies in the small employer category (15-99 U.S. employees), 22 companies in the medium employer category (100-499 U.S. employees), and 12 companies in the large employer category (500 or more U.S. employees). RMIC has been named one of the Best Places to Work in Illinois in the small category.

Statewide, companies entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Illinois. Approximately 25% of the total valuation is based on workplace policies, practices and demographics; while 75% of the total valuation is based off of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Illinois, analyzing the data and using their expertise to determine the final rankings.

“We could not be happier to have earned this recognition two years in a row,” said Lisa Ireton, Director of Human Resources at RMIC. “Despite the many challenges that arose out of the COVID-19 pandemic, we strived to make sure our associates felt safe, appreciated, respected, challenged and motivated while working entirely remote following the onset of the pandemic in March of 2020.”

RMIC will be recognized and honored at the Best Places to Work in Illinois awards virtual ceremony coordinated by The Daily Herald Business Ledger on Thursday, May 13. The final rankings will be announced at the event, posted on the Business Ledger website, and published in a special commemorative section on June 21. An unranked list of all honorees will be announced in the April 26 issue of the Business Ledger.
