The Ashley Group has been named as one of the top 20 Best Places to Work in Insurance by Business Insurance and Best Companies Group in the Small Employer category. This program recognizes employers across the country for their outstanding performance in establishing workplaces where employees can thrive, enjoy their work and help their companies grow. This is the second year they have been honored to make the list.
“We’re extremely proud of the team we’ve put together here at The Ashley Group and honored to have been named a Best Place to Work again for the second year in a row,” says Ashley Group president Tim Paradiso. “Our goal is to make The Ashley Group a place that our people want to be. Seeing where we rank year after year has become a valuable yardstick for making sure we’re achieving that goal.”
“Being named to Business Insurance’s list of the Best Places to Work in Insurance for 2018 demonstrates that The Ashley Group has built a culture in which employees are supported and engaged, which benefits their customers and the employers’ financial performance,” says Business Insurance Publisher Peter Oxner.
The Ashley Group was founded in 2002 and has approximately 30 employees between three locations in Northern Ohio. In addition to providing an affordable and comprehensive benefit package, they maintain a fun and friendly workplace built on a supportive, team-focused culture that nurtures career growth and development for every individual.
In the past year, The Ashley Group has taken even greater strides to improve their workplace culture by creating committees within the organization that are tasked with promoting and supporting the workforce’s values, including volunteerism, morale and personal education and development. They have also made efforts to identify the personal goals that each individual employee has for their lives in hopes of helping employees turn those dreams into a reality, be it in regards to professional development or the desire to take a vacation with their family.
“We recognize that our people spend more time at work than they do at home with their families, so it’s important to us to make sure that they can enjoy the time they spend here,” says Paradiso, “We want everyone to be happy in the work they do and to enjoy working with each other. It’s all about getting the right people and then supporting them to make their work lives and personal lives better.”
