EMPLOYERS – Why Work For Us?


EMPLOYERS® is a group of companies providing workers' compensation insurance and services to select, small American businesses. We understand the workers’ compensation insurance needs of independent, entrepreneurial businesspeople because we focus on only one type of customer—small businesses. We understand the small business-based risks of workplace injury and accident, and we work hard to help protect each insured business’s bottom line. Knowledgeable, responsive underwriters, loss control experts, and claims specialists work closely with the businesses we insure to develop workers' compensation coverage, services and programs that fit their business philosophy and goals.

Our workers’ compensation insurance products and services are targeted toward small businesses. Working with independent insurance agencies and our strategic distribution partners, our underwriters use their local market expertise and disciplined underwriting to select specific types of businesses and risks that allow us to provide policyholders with competitive rates.

Our financial strength and stability is recognized by the A.M. Best Company, which continues to rate the group A- (Excellent). This rating does not refer to our ability to meet non-insurance obligations and is not a recommendation to purchase or discontinue any policy or contract issued by us or to buy, hold and sell our securities.

    I have been working at EMPLOYERS full-time

    Pros

    The Company is pretty good with Work / Life balance. They also hold great events and go beyond most companies when it comes to caring. For example, I received a really nice card and box of See's candy for Thanksgiving! They are also really good at hiring from within - it's not uncommon that an employee can be hired in a completely different department.

    Cons

    * Innovation and Agility
    * Limited Vehicles for Feedback
    * Overly Cost Conscious
    * Culture

    Advice to Management

    Too many things are being stonewalled with Executive Leadership. Continuing to operate as they have in the past is not sustainable. If the Company truly and genuinely focuses on being Innovative and Agile, everything else will follow.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at EMPLOYERS (Charlotte, NC) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Very smooth application process - most of which I would attribute to my recruiter at the company. Very minimal "in the dark" time and everyone I spoke with was very helpful in answering any and all questions I had. I applied online on their website, had two phone interviews and one in-person interview. One of my earlier phone interviews followed up with a few additional questions a few weeks later.
