Rural Mutual Voted One of Madison’s Best Places to Work

Rural Mutual Insurance Company is thrilled to be named to Madison Magazine’s 2015 list of Madison’s Best Places to Work. The only way to be named to this list is by a vote of confidence from its employees in the form of an anonymous survey.

Survey results revealed many things that set Rural Mutual apart in the minds and hearts of its employees:

  • “Our CEO sends personalized birthday and employment anniversary cards to employees—a handwritten message is a nice touch.”
  • “A fine organization whose management sets high standards for work product while being open to, appreciative of and caring toward employees.”

“I am extremely proud to be associated with such a fine group of committed individuals,” said Peter Pelizza, CEO of Rural Mutual. “I always say that companies don’t succeed, people do, but even more so at Rural Mutual. Everyone Counts!”

About the list

The Best Places to Work survey was done by an independent third party, Quantum Workplace, utilizing ten key factors: team effectiveness, trust in senior leaders, feeling value, manager effectiveness, compensation, benefits, individual contribution, trust in co-workers, job satisfaction, and retention.

Once data collection was complete, Quantum conducted a rigorous security audit to verify all surveys. The results were compiled and analyzed to determine which organizations have the highest levels of employee engagement. The twenty-six businesses profiled in the Madison Magazine story ranked the highest in these categories.
